Mayan ruins by the beach

If you want a relaxing beach holiday served with a slice of Mexican heritage, head for spectacular Riviera Maya, offering some of Mexico’s best tropical sands and ancient Mayan ruins.

This beautiful strip of coastline is steeped in local history, including the majestic Chichen Itza; an incredible, historic Mayan pyramid and temple whose ruins promise a stunning sight. Quieter than Cancun yet still easily accessible, Riviera Maya is ideal for families or those after a more laidback Mexican trip; be sure to visit Xel-ha and Xcaret eco-parks for a fun filled day out for all to enjoy and a break away from your sunbed. 

For a real Mexican adventure, we recommend tagging on a few days in Mexico City during your trip where you can soak up the sights, meet the friendly locals and shop for authentic gifts and produce.

Dry Season

Take advantage of Playacar’s dry season to enjoy lazing under the hot sun on the white sand beaches or to swim in the warm Caribbean waters. Even on the hottest day you will find cooling sea breezes make everything comfortable. 

Our Favourite Season

Playacar’s white sand beaches are best enjoyed during the shoulder season of May to July. These months offer hot temperatures and blue skies but without the humidity of September and October or the crowds of December to April. 

Rainy Season

Although technically rainy season in Playacar extends from June to November, the only months that really get much rain are September and October. This is when humidity rises, along with the risk of hurricanes. Brief rainstorms are usually followed by sunny skies.

Rainy Season
Find more about Playa Del Carmen

Dry Season

The dry season in Playa del Carmen is hot, sunny, and very dry. Expect cloudless blue skies and high temperatures, especially between April through July, although December through March are still warm and perfect. 

Our Favourite Season

Our favourite time to visit Playa del Carmen is from May to July, when the weather offers up perfect blue skies, warm temperatures, and low humidity. This is also outside of peak season so you won’t experience the crowds Mexico’s coast gets. 

Rainy Season

Playa del Carmen heads into rainy season around June, but peak rain and the threat of hurricanes occurs in September and October. Outside of those two months you will see sunny days followed by brief afternoon showers the cool and refresh the air.
