The Riviera Maya in Mexico is a very popular destination for Canadian and U.S. tourists seeking a taste of the Caribbean, but prices during the busy season of late December through April can skyrocket. For the best deals and considerably fewer crowds, plan a getaway November through early December.
As many cities in Canada and the U.S. start seeing single-digit winter temperatures, the Riviera Maya maintains an average of 29-32 degrees. Crowds tend to diminish and a less-hurried Caribbean way of life prevails. Plus, hotels cut their rates up to 50% and well-priced airfare becomes easier to find.
