We were in the Akumal area for Christmas this past year. The days were warm, mid 80's. The sun set around 6pm, and the temp was in the 60's. We tried out the pools, but they were really too cool for us. We swam in the ocean which was warmer. We got alittle rain one afternoon. Since it was 6 degrees when we left Missouri, we thought the weather was wonderful!

We saw no bugs of any kind. We had taken bug spray, but never took it out of the bag. Didn't encounter anything in the water either.

we spend the first 2 weeks december in the mayan riviera every year. have always taken the off but never had to use it. pool temps are chilly but once you are in it's great. ocean is warmer but i have found the fish do not provide a proper swim up bar lol

Thanks for your replies blwild and dfh98! Looks like it will be nice then. We hoping to use the pool, maybe it'll be warm enough. If not, we'll swim in the ocean!!!

Thanks again!!

LindaIllinois,

Fish, jellyfish, and all kinds of creatures live in the ocean, we are the pests in thier element.

Go and have a good time and don't worry about the critters-you will have the time of your life!!!
