If you can choose your vacation dates, the best months to travel to the Riviera Maya and what we recommend is that you do so anytime from January through April.Riviera Maya has a year-long tropical climate – six months dry and six months rainy weather. That doesn’t mean that it does not rain during the dry season but, it is not like the rainy season when it rains every day. If it is true that from December through June rain is scarce, it is because these months fall in the dry season. Humidity levels drop, the overwhelming heat is much less (down to 25°C / 80°F during the day) and, so are mosquitoes and other bugs.
