4 reasons to spend Christmas in the Mayan Riviera

Living a Christmas in the Riviera Maya is a unique experience everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. 


Switching from snow to sand has become a tendency among travelers from all over the globe. If you’re thinking about following this trend over the holidays, The Riviera Maya is the ideal destination and here’s why.


  1. The weather in the Riviera Maya is wonderful


Escape from the cold weather by coming down to sunny Mexico, more specifically, the Riviera Maya. This tropical destination is blessed with temperatures that go from 25°C (77°F) to 30°C (86°F), even during the winter!


Also, winter is the perfect time for visiting because it is not hurricane season so the seas are much calmer than in early May, for example. 


To top it all, the winter season is seaweed-free! Have you heard about the sargassum problem the Caribbean faced earlier this year? Well, that’s nothing to worry about when you spend Christmas in the Riviera Maya.


These conditions are ideal for families with children because they can swim in the ocean without worrying about huge waves or seaweed! This means instead of wearing layers and layers of warm clothes, the only thing you’ll need all day is your bathing suit and flip flops.


  1. The resorts go all out for Christmas


Enormous Christmas trees, beautiful ornaments everywhere, an abundance of lights, and the most iconic songs like All I Want For Christmas Is You flooding the halls of the resorts is what one gets to experience when checking in a hotel for spending Christmas in the Riviera Maya. 


All of this accompanied by special events like Christmas shows, special dinners, bands playing live music, choirs singing Christmas carols… even fireworks! Riviera Maya’s resorts make great efforts to make sure their guests spend a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


  1. The activities you get to do for celebrating the holidays


Forget about baking cookies and knitting sweaters for a year and opt for a more adventurous family activity such as scuba diving, driving an ATV through the jungle, or perhaps even joining into a Maya Ceremony near the iconic ruins of Chichen Itza.


Can you imagine giving out exciting and enriching experiences instead of material gifts to your loved ones? Well, while staying in Mexico you could definitely do that, to give you an idea here’s a list of Mr. Savvy’s favorite tours in the Riviera Maya.


4.The absolutely outstanding Mexican cuisine


Mexican gastronomy is much more than tacos, when spending Christmas in the Riviera Maya you’ll see for yourself: all sorts of delicious stews will probably be available at your resort. And let’s not even get started with desserts and drinks because that’s a whole blog post on itself.


However, if you feel like having a more exclusive experience, making reservations for a local restaurant could also be a good idea. The best part is that you can also make a reservation for your transportation and ensure a hassle-free Christmas!
