What to bring by season

June to October is the official rainy season in Acapulco. At this time, temperatures and humidity rise, and you can feel more heat than the actual temperature. You should bring a swimsuit, insect repellent, biodegradable sunscreen, a hat or cap, sunglasses, flip-flops, and fresh clothing made of natural fibers. Remember to pack a folding umbrella or a rain jacket.

From November to May, you can enjoy the warm sunny days of Acapulco and its pleasant nights. There is almost no rainfall and average temperature is around 27 °C (80 °F). We suggest bringing pants, long-sleeve shirts, and a light sweater or wind jacket, during the night wind-chill can drop due to the breeze and proximity to the sea.
