Hi Quintana Roo travelers!
We are voyaging to the east coast of Mexico for Christmas for the first time (we usually always go Zihua/Pacific coast)
I have been watcching the weather the past few days and all I see is RAIN RAIN RAIN. It's at 65-85% chance with thunderstroms the whole Xmas week. I am talking ten whole days!
Does anyone have experience with this over Christmas? Are we looking at being rained out the whole time? What's going on and why did I not know this before I booked this expensive trip? Thanks in advance for any help.
Hi! I spent the first week of December in Akumal (close to Tulum) and when I checked the weather forecast before leaving, I saw that it was supposed to rain all week long!! But as it turns out, it only rained during one day, and not even for the entire day. So I wouldn't worry about it too much, it might rain a bit but I doubt that it will rain for 10 days straight. And if you're out snorkeling or swimming, you won't even notice it's raining anyway!
Have a great time on the Riviera Maya!
