Pool temp early December

Does anyone have a rough idea how cold resort pools are in December? Is it too cold to hang in the pool all day?

I could take 30 minutes and then get out to warm up

There are handful of resorts with heated pools

It it cool and then the blowing cool wind makes it chilly.

I've never had an issue with cooling off in the pool in December, even late December. I've also participated in many pool activities, ie. volleyball. I'm probably in the opposing opinion that a heated pool is not required for me, especially when the sun is out.

December is nowhere near as bad as late Jan. thru Feb.....

Remember, 5 shots Tequila = heated pool....

It's almost always too cold for me. Then when you get out you need a towel for a blanket as the wind can be chilly. Some Dec are warmer than others, but in over 10 years of going this time of year, this has been the norm for me.

The pools were very cold this following year...

"7 Dec 10 - " With the UN Climate Change Conference underway in Cancun to discuss the dangers of Global Warming, the resort host location is experiencing its third straight day of record cold temperatures," says reader Richard Nathan.

Today the mercury fell to 53F in Cancun. The record for this date - 57F - was set in 2000.

Yesterday, the temperature in Cancun fell to 53F, a new record, and on Dec 5th it fell to 51F, yet another new record."

Been in January and never had a problem with pool temp.

If you're sweating from sunbathing the pool is a nice break.

The pool temps have always been good for us. It's still hot in december, so if your laying out, it's nice to cool off in the pool:} Have a great time on your trip!
