Playacar Weather September Averages, Mexico
What's the Weather like in Playacar in September
Despite being in the center of the tourist hotspot Riviera Maya, Playacar is quiet and secluded luxury resort offering a holiday away to Mexico. Overlooking Cozumel, just a 40-minute drive south from Cancun and with the lively Playa del Carmen right next door, it's an ideal base for exploring the popular resort area.
Although it's still hot this month, temperatures do start to drop slightly as the summer edges its way into autumn. The average daily temperature for this time of year is 28°C (around 82°F). The lows drop to 24°C (about 76°F) and the highs will still reach up to a hot 32°C (around 89°F). The humidity starts to wane during this month, so even with high temperatures, it feels pretty comfortable. You'll still want to wear short-sleeved shirts, shorts and capris during the day and perhaps a light jacket or sweater at night when you'll be outside.
Average Sunshine Hours
This month, you'll have one less hour of sunshine a day compared to August, with 9 hours a day. Still, this gives you plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the resort and surrounding towns. The chance of a sunny day on any given day is only 5 percent, but don't forget your sunglasses or hat. When the sun is out, it'll be hot and bright.
Unfortunately, with an average rainfall of 229mm, this is the resort's wettest month. It also rains almost half the month, with an average of 15 days of rainfall. The chance of rain on any given day is 40 percent and the chance of a cloudy day is 26 percent.
Thankfully, winds are light this month, with a 4 percent chance of a windy day. Pack a raincoat, check the forecast daily and make the most of any time without rainfall!
Average Sea Temperature
The ocean water warmth peaks this month with an average sea temperature of 26°C (about 84°F). If you can dodge the raindrops, the warm ocean and the hot air temperatures make for excellent beach conditions.
