The month of June is in full swing in Galway but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature as the city and county experience dark skies and downpours that are more usual in late autumn and winter.
Yet there is no need for your mood to match the gloomy weather. You need to think positive; think hot sunny days; think ivory beaches; think partying; think Cancun.
Not convinced yet?
Here are four reasons why Cancun should be your next holiday destination
1 The beautiful beaches
With 20 miles of stunning sun-kissed beaches, Cancun's Yucatan coast offers holiday goers some of the best resorts in the whole of Mexico. Playa Las Perlas and Playa Toryugas on the city's north are brilliant places for swimming and a spot of people watching. However, if you are more the adventurous type, then Playa Delfines or Chac Mool's rugged conditions makes it a windsurfers' paradise.
2 Year round sunshine and sunbathing
Two of the most important things to a tourist from Galway are heat and the sun. The tropical beaches of Cancun simmer in average temperatures from 23 degrees Celsius from April onwards with uninterrupted sunshine. And for those who love the sea the temperature is a toasty 29 degrees Celsius; certainly a long way from the icy cold waters of Blackrock.
3 Party central
Cancun has long been the favourite get away of the young American spring breaker and with a huge amount of world-famous super clubs, bamboo bars, and chic inner city cocktail bars visitors are guaranteed a party to remember. For the most eye-popping show, head to the legendary Coco Bongo, where laser parties and acrobatic shows bedazzle the visitor.
4 Luxury; Cancun's hotels and resorts
Boasting literally hundreds of accommodations from which to choose; you will not go without a roof over your head when you arrive in Cancun. From the five star spa resorts to the boutiques hotels, the tropical retreat caters for all tastes and budgets. And most importantly, the area is one of the safest tourist zones in the entire country.
