Frequently Asked Questions
The Riviera Maya is quite extensive, and many small cities are a part of this long stretch of coast, so we have listed the most popular cities on the Riviera Maya coastline.
Cancun – The city is one of the most popular destinations and attracts more than two million visitors per year. Its Caribbean-like atmosphere is a joy to experience. However, the city only has a 14 mile stretch of beach, where most of our luxurious villas sit. These homes offer the perfect place to enjoy spectacular sunsets, watch the sun dive into the turquoise blue water and paint it with bright reds, oranges, and purples.
Cancun is also a favorite for party goers and Spring Breakers who want to enjoy the nightlife. But don’t be fooled. There are also many daytime activities for guests wishing to experience all that the Riviera Maya offers.
Luxury villa renters can savor exquisite cuisine, gorgeous beach clubs, vibrant nightlife, great water activities, and so much more from Cancun. Keep in mind that you may also schedule day trips that take you to the cenotes or excellent archeological sites.
Playa del Carmen – Although Playa del Carmen has everything Cancun offers, it distinguishes itself for its international flair. Many European, American, and Canadian travelers choose to visit Playa del Carmen, and because of it, Playa del Carmen has developed a genuinely eclectic and trendy sophistication. As with Cancun, villa renters can enjoy day trips, swimming with sea turtles, exploring the beach, golf amenities, archeological sites, and the famous Quinta Avenida in town.
Tulum – Tulum is the place you want to be when you want to be surrounded by archaeological sites, rich heritage, and local culture. Tulum is the city of ancient ruins, and it offers endless exploring options for travelers who want to immerse themselves in the old experience. Tulum is also near the Sian Ka’an Biosphere reserve with Mayan history, archeological sites, and natural beauty that extends from flora and fauna to the coral reefs. The world heritage site is a must-see if you are an environmentally conscious tourist and want an exquisite vacation experience.
No wonder the Riviera Maya is considered a world-class destination for the ultimate luxury vacation experience. Whether you want to enjoy Cancun’s vibrant night live, explore ancient Mayan ruins in Tulum, or go to Playa del Carmen, it can be an unforgettable experience when using the Villa Experience private home rental option.
It is exciting to plan a trip to the Riviera Maya. Your choice of destination and activities can inspire adventure, fun, and even relaxation. However, once you decide to take a memorable vacation, you need to think about when to go, and the weather should be perfect.
So, when is the best time to visit The Riviera Maya?
The weather in The Riviera Maya and Cancun is fabulous year-round. The area boasts 300 days of sunlight and a warm climate. However, it is a tropical climate, so hitting the water may be necessary sometimes to beat the intense heat. Rain showers are usually short-lived, although tropical storms and hurricanes can strike and affect any outdoor activities you had planned.
There is a wet and dry season in the Riviera Maya, which you can expect from each of these seasons.
The summer: May is when the whale sharks migrate through the area, and the sea turtles nest. There is not that much rain in May, and while the climate is warmer than in winter, it is not as hot as the typical summer months of June, July, and August.
In June, you can expect temperatures to sit at around 87 degrees Fahrenheit. In July, the humidity rises, and it can be a bit uncomfortable, but if you spend your days at the pool or the beach, you may not notice the difference. In the evening, temperatures cool off, and you can visit the outdoor bars comfortably. In August, the temperatures and the humidity rise significantly, and it is considered the hottest month of the year. However, temperatures still sit at about 89 to the low 90s during this month.
Fall: This is the wettest season of the year. In September and October, the Riviera Maya experiences the most rain. However, rain showers here are short-lived and only last for a few hours at the most, not enough to ruin a trip. Although the summertime is considered hurricane season, very few hurricanes hit the area, and the chances of you experiencing one are very slim.
Winter: Considered the high season and the driest and coolest season of the year. Generally, the temperature is in the high 70s and 80s during this time. However, the weather begins to warm again in February and averages about 80.
There is no wrong time to visit the Riviera Maya as the weather is pleasant throughout the year.
Most locals believe Spring is the best time to visit because it is warm sunny with a few short Spring showers.
The cosmopolitan Mexican Riviera extends over 67 miles, starts outside Cancun, and runs to Tulum.
So when you rent one of our Riviera Maya villas, especially if it is in Playa del Carmen or the rich cultural city of Tulum, you may worry about transportation from the airport and any of the activities you want to enjoy.
But don’t worry, you can arrange transportation for these long distances with our concierge. In addition, we can arrange a private pick up and transport to any activity destinations you want to visit. This question and solution are just one of the reasons why it is so important to contact us after finalizing your reservation to help you with these minor concerns.
A visit to the Riviera Maya does mean long lazy days on the beach, but there are also many adventures to enjoy. You can decide to go ziplining, visit an ancient Mayan Ruin, or any cenotes and adventure parks. You will, however, need reliable transportation to get to and from these activities. Make sure to plan your outings with your concierge so he can provide good suggestions for a ride to and from the destination.
It is often customary to come across seaweed, but that doesn’t affect your villa stay. Seaweed is natural and has always existed in the Riviera Maya. Even the first Spanish visitors recorded the fact. However, it has grown a bit in the last few years.
What Causes The Seaweed
Scientists say it may be caused by warmer ocean temperatures, changes in currents, or fertilizers washing into the rivers and flowing into the ocean.
Seaweed thrives in warm temperatures, and the ocean is warmest during the late spring and summer. However, if you plan your trip during the winter months, the climate will be beautiful, and there is not much seaweed.
Do Coastal Authorities Do Anything to Reduce the Amount of Seaweed that washes up on shore?
The hotels, resorts, beach clubs do their part to clear the seaweed. Some areas have installed water nets to keep it from washing up on shore, and the authorities regularly clean the beaches of the seaweed, but it tends to reappear overnight.
Avoiding the Seaweed
The best time to make your reservation and visit the Riviera Maya and avoid heavy seaweed is to come in the winter or early spring. Also, you want to keep in mind; If you don’t like swimming or snorkeling when seaweed is, you can enjoy the freshwater attractions and wait for the seaweed to dissipate.
The weather is pleasant throughout the year. However, the peak season starts in November and ends towards April, when people plan their winter vacations in the Riviera Maya to get out of the cold. The region includes cities like Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carment, Puerto Aventura and Tulum. It is a 68-mile coastline considered the jewel of Mexico.
If you plan on experiencing the culture of the Riviera Maya, the high season is the time to go when many of the area’s annual events occur. Here are just a few of the traditional annual events in the Riviera Maya.
The Arena Festival: IT is a vast electronic party occurring during the last week of January.
Tulum Food, Spirits, and Wine Festival- A week in early February where Tulum celebrates food, and local businesses offer cooking demonstrations by local and international chefs.
Carnival in Cozumel – On Shrove Tuesday in March or April, Cozumel celebrates Mardi Gras, one of Mexico’s most famous carnivals.
November can also be the best time to visit. The pleasant coastal breezes start in November. It is the month when the heat and humidity of the summer drop, but it is warmer than in the winter months. Unfortunately, November is also the start of the dry season, and it rains much less during this month.

One of the most recognized Mayan ruins is Chichén Itzá, accessible within a 2.5-hour drive from Playa del Carmen. You can see a massive, complete ziggurat pyramid with graphic stone carvings that illustrate the daily lives of the Mayans. Just 23 km south of Tulum is the Archeological Zone of Muyil, which features artifacts dating back to 350 BCE
Cenotes: The Riviera Maya boasts many unique natural landmarks known as “Cenotes” in Spanish. These are natural sinkholes from semi-open caves and have underwater freshwater pools. Visitors often visit the Cenotes to experience the energy and beauty of these unique pools. There are more than 6000 cenotes in Yucatan and about 400 near Tulum. These are the Cenote Calavera, Gran Cenote, Jardin del Eden, and Cenote Azul. Any of these are a must-see on your visit to the Riviera Maya.
