    Riviera Maya weather December

    What’s the weather like in Riviera Maya in December?

    With hot temperatures and much less rain compared to the summer, the Riviera Maya weather in December is great for a sun-packed Christmas break. Mexico’s tropical climate could produce some showers, but these’ll soon pass and you’ll have hours to enjoy relaxing by the golden beaches.

    Geographical influences

    The Riviera Maya’s a long stretch of idyllic beaches along Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. It’s just to the south of Cancun and takes in the picturesque resorts of Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras. December’s one of the drier months here, by the Caribbean Sea, and visitors benefit from a cool coastal breeze. Towns away from the coast don’t benefit from these winds.


    The weather in Riviera Maya in December has an average daytime high temperature of 28°C. That’s very warm for the time of the year and temperatures only fall to around 22°C during rare cooler days. The sunshine’s very strong around eastern Mexico and the Riviera Maya in December, with eight hours each day on average. At the start of the month, the sun rises at 7.15am and doesn’t set until after 6pm. Rainfall’s not too heavy around the Riviera Maya at this time, with about 84mm on average falling across just seven wet-weather days. The average wind speed’s moderate and the heat and humidity levels are lower compared to summer, spring and autumn. The UV level’s moderate to high, so take care in Mexico’s afternoon sun.
