    Geographical influences

    The Riviera Maya’s a picturesque stretch of golden sand, just to the south of Cancun, along Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. It includes popular resorts like Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Puerto Aventuras. This part of central America has a wet season between May and October, but the refreshing coastal breeze helps to keep you cool and comfortable in the heat.


    If you’re a beach goer, a sun worshipper or just someone who enjoys hot tropical weather, then you’ll love coming to Mexico in the summer month of August. The weather in Riviera Maya in August reaches a daytime high of 33°C. This will be around 28°C for most days in the month, with a moderate sea breeze, and only drops to around 21°C on cooler days. The night time temperature’s a comfortable 20°C. You can take a dip in the sea if you want to cool off and have some fun, with the water temperature likely to reach a high of 28°C. If sunbathing’s your thing, you can make the most of the Riviera Maya’s ten hours of sunshine at this time of the year. Use plenty of sun cream though, because the UV level’s high in Mexico this month. The rainfall average will be 162mm across 11 wet-weather days, with showers that are usually brief.
