-30 C, 0F, 36F, 40F, 55F, 1C. These are some of the reported temperatures to the north, mainly northern US states and Canada. Weather reports say this will be the year of weather extremes, from very cold to unseasonably warmer temperatures. Sounds like people will be reaching for winter coats one week, and light spring jackets the next. How labor intensive, no?
So far this year we have been reaching for flip flops and bathing suits. This lifestyle is less stressful, provides us with less headaches, and a lifestyle that is way more fun than winter boots and coats.
If local climate swings are getting you down, which I have to say would get me down, there are some easy Spring getaways that you just might to explore.
Our favorite beach getaways are found in less populated places in the Riviera Maya. If climate swings are getting you down, the last thing you may want is an action packed spring holiday.
Two places come to mind for a great Spring Get Away, Maroma Beach and Xpu Ha. And why you ask?
First we love these beaches. Second we love, love, love the accommodations offered in these Riviera Maya locations. Third, if you want to reach popular Riviera Maya villages and cities, be it Akumal, Playa del Carmen or Tulum, getting to these areas for a day trip is easy from Maroma and Xpu Ha. We feel these beaches give you the best of both worlds!
What can you expect from these two Riviera Maya beach destinations? Beautiful white beaches, the varied blue hues of the Caribbean Sea, beautiful sunrises, quiet evenings, lazy beach days. Your selfies will show blue sky, white sand, and the endless blue Caribbean waters. No one will be photo bombing you here!
Drum roll please. Our Spring Yucatan getaway picks are Valladolid and Merida. Why? These inland cities are generally too hot to visit in the summer. People do it, they bear the heat in these interior cities, but why suffer during the summer when you can comfortably visit in the winter and spring months.
Valladolid is a small colonial city that will take your breath away. It is also in close proximity to prominent historical sites that you will love exploring while the temperature remains moderate. Cenotes, museums, cathedrals and beautiful folk art stores are just some of the many things to see and do in Valladolid.

Merida, the capital city of the state, is a big city full of big history. Museums, architectural gems, music and a deep cultural connection to its roots, makes this city a historical playground just waiting for you to visit. Like Valladolid you can venture to local cenotes, archeological sites and local villages, but you just may find that Merida has more than enough to keep you entertained in the city. Symphony anyone?
Choose any of these destinations or search for your own spring getaway in the Riviera Maya. There is so much to see and do in a temperate, flip flop only location, how could you say no?
