Should we cancel our trip to Cancun 5/14-5/19 due to Rain?

We are scheduled for a trip to Cancun May 14-19. I looked at the forecast just now and it says thunderstorms and rain every single day we are there. And perfect sunny weather starting the day we leave.

Does anyone know if this is accurate? We can still get a full refund if we cancel by tonight so I have to decide asap, may try and switch to Puerto Vallarta instead.

Would appreciate any advice. We have been looking forward to this trip for months.

I looked at this weather site :

https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/Cancun+Mexico+MXQR0138:1:MX

and it only shows 1 day of 80%... When a weather site shows a % of rain that does not mean it is going to rain 80% of that day, it means there is an 80% chance of rain in a 24 hour period.....

in short even if it rains it is unlikely to do so for more than one or one and a half hours each day.

As carico wrote it does not mean that it’s going to rain all day and night. it almost never does that and Mexico.

I wouldn't cancel a trip due to rain unless it was a slow moving tropical storm or something.

Does anyone know if this forecast does reflect a tropical storm coming?

Don't cancel! It's unlikely to rain the entire time....too early for hurricanes.

A bit of rain is a god send in the heat of the summer!
