One of the most renowned and impressive cenotes you’ll find near the city of Valladolid is the semi-open Hubiku Cenote.

Coupled with the sight of lengthy tree roots cascading into its azure waters, this creates a beautiful scene. In this guide to the Hubiku Cenote, we’ll be recounting everything you need to know to make the most of your visit, genuinely savouring the experience. But that’s not all. We’ll also take you through the Tequila Museum within the cenote’s compound in Valladolid, Yucatán.

What is the weather in Yucatan?

The weather in this part of Mexico is one of its greatest appeals, making Yucatán travel attractive year-round. Generally, Yucatán experiences warm temperatures throughout the day and night, regardless of the season.
August stands out as the hottest month of the year in Yucatán, with average temperatures ranging from 90°F to 100°F (32°C to 38°C). During this time, the weather tends to be warm, humid, and often rainy.
Despite the humidity, the warm weather provides ample opportunities for water-based activities. However, it's essential to always stay hydrated to ensure a comfortable experience.

What to Wear in the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico?

Given that the Yucatán experiences warm and humid conditions year-round, we advise packing a versatile selection of lightweight, breathable clothing to ensure comfort during your visit.
For excursions to any of the Yucatán’s numerous cenotes, it's advisable to bring waterproof footwear such as sandals or flip-flops. Additionally, consider packing goggles or snorkel gear if you plan to explore these natural wonders fully.
Special attire is not necessary for visiting Mayan ruins, but we recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes, especially ones that you don't mind getting dirty. This is particularly useful as Yucatán frequently experiences rainfall.
Furthermore, Yucatán experiences a higher prevalence of mosquitoes from April to November. To mitigate the risk of mosquito bites, we suggest using mosquito repellent while exploring the region.

Do I need a visa to attend Fab City Summit in Mexico?

Entry requirements for Mexico vary depending on the traveller’s nationality. Mexico has visa exemption agreements with several countries, but some travellers may require a visa before traveling to Mexico.
Regardless of visa requirements, all foreigners must possess the following documents:
1. A valid passport with more than six months of validity. While Mexican authorities require passports to be valid for the duration of the stay in Mexico, transit countries and airline companies may have additional requirements.
2. A properly completed Multiple Migratory Form (FMM), which can be obtained from the airline or at the port of entry.
