No New Year's Resolutions Needed Here We live a great life in a beautiful place so resolutions...

sweater on the beach

Pack a jacket The weather in the Riviera Maya is great during the winter, days are usually sunny with highs in the lower 80F/26C.    The evenings are in the upper 60's/lower 20C.
