Default OT==when is cancun not full of college partiers?

i have a chance to take a all inclusive vacation with friends and we do not know when the best time to go would be. we are in our 40's/50's and do not want to be kept up all night by loud music and we want to be able to enjoy the beach. beleive me, we love kids and have them ourselfs, but for this vacation we want to enjoy a leisurly more quiet time on the beach for a week with less parties all night and without hundreds of students.

please, any advice for good months to go would be deeply appriciated. i am an avid cruiser so this will be a new experience for me.

March and April are both big spring break months. The colleges in our area are out by the third week in May, so I also wouldn't go in latter part of May or during the summer. Before I had kids I found that September or October were great months to travel. All the kids, both younger and older were back in school, and the weather was still nice.

Although Sept/Oct. are also the height of hurricane season. I've always found it most peaceful to go to the Carribbean/Mexico in November (not Thanksgiving week though).

I asked the locals in Cancun when the rainy season is/rainiest month and they said October. I had relatives (60+ yr olds) who always went in Dec. and they said the water was too cold to swim in but the weather was not unbearably hot. I've always gone the end of May through mid-July and there are more families visiting then. Only problem is you have to stay in the water/shade or indoors to stand the heat.

If I could go whenever I want...I'd go in February as the water might be warmer and no crowds because school is in session.
