Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Cancun is an approximately 26-hour flight. You'll gain 9 hours traveling from Dubai to Cancun due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dubai in August, things will get a bit cooler in Cancun: highs are around 37°C and lows about 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Tulum.
