    Riviera Maya weather May

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

    Even though the wet season begins this month in this Caribbean resort, the Riviera Maya weather in May is still very hot and packed with famous Mexican sunshine. You’ll need to bring plenty of warm weather clothes and just a showerproof jacket in case you’re caught in the rain.

    Geographical influences

    The Riviera Maya’s set along the east coast of Mexico, just south of Cancun and taking in the beach resorts of Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The region benefits from a hot tropical climate with a wet season between May and October. The heat and humidity are helped by a cool coastal breeze, which towns further inland don’t benefit from.


    There’s no need for jumpers and jackets this month! The hot weather in Riviera Maya in May produces an amazing average daytime high of 31°C, which lowers to around 22°C on cooler days. The Caribbean Sea usually provides a moderate sea breeze. The sunshine’s fantastic, too. You can expect an average of ten hours each day during May and you can relax under the sun until it finally disappears about 7.15pm. The sea’s very inviting at this time of the year, with an average temperature of 28°C, so why not go for a dip or try some exciting water sports? Rainfall’s quite low in the Riviera Maya, with just 41mm in the month, and you can expect just occasional showers during your memorable holiday to Mexico in May.
