Weather in the Riviera Maya Mexico

Weather is an incredibly important factor in determining when to visit the Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The Riviera Maya has some of the most beautiful days you will ever experience with it's cool breezes right off the Caribbean shore.

One of the most wonderful things about this semi tropical Riviera Maya is that the current temperatures here are perfect just about year round!

You can come anytime of year and swim in the ocean and walk on the beach and be very comfortable.

There are not a lot of places like the Riviera Maya so you know whenever you come here you are guaranteed some great weather!

You might experience an afternoon shower in the rainy season, but there aren't many days where you can't enjoy the beach and the beautiful sunshine!

Feb, Mar, April & May - Springtime in the Riviera Maya! There is only a little bit of rain in these months, but the flowers are blooming. The evenings are a bit cool, but during the day the temperature is mild and comfortable and ranges from 75-82 degrees F.

It is still perfect for swimming in the ocean. The pool may be a bit cold depending on how hot the days are, but when I have traveled during these months I swam in the pools despite it being a bit colder.

Nov, Dec. & Jan - The coolest months in the Riviera Maya. Temperatures can be from 72-80 degrees F. The conditins are very comfortable outside. You can wear normal summer clothing, but in the evenings you may need a light jacket because it tends to get cooler.

No matter what time of year it is, it would be helpful to bring a light jacket for the evenings. The sun goes down and so does the temperature. The breeze off the ocean is very strong at night which also cools you down. It is always very helpful to know what a typical day looks like!
