Hurricane season in the Caribbean (Atlantic Ocean) run from July to October (sometimes hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean could start early in June or end late in November). Most years, hurricanes or tropical storms (the name for hurricanes with slower winds) will not hit Cancun, and seldom you will have a hurricane pass directly through Cancun or the Mexican resorts in the Riviera Maya.

Nortes is the term that Mexicans use for cool winds from the North that blow along the Gulf of Mexico from the North to the South.
