The least considered but the most important: Isla Mujeres great weather.
For the north hemisphere, the first months of the year are winter. When you think in winter, the first thing that comes to mind is cold, wind and snow. brr* Well, that’s all the opposite when experiencing winter in the Caribbean.
For comparison, let’s see the weather in La Jolla USA.
La Jolla is one of the most beautiful beaches in the U.S.A, and in summer it is very sunny. The average high temperature stays between the 60 degrees and high 70. The ocean temperature warms up during the summer, reaching 68° or 69 ° F.
Usually, this temperature it’s pretty cold for swimmers , but with a wetsuit, you can barely find it cold. Fortunately, there is rarely any rainfall during these summer months and sunset is around 8pm, who means that you have enough hours of sunshine to enjoy the city.
In summer, this sounds like a great place to visit, but in winter the ocean temperature stays quite cold, going around 50° fahrenheit and anything below 64° will feel too cold to swim comfortably.
If you want to know more about the things you can do in both La Jolla and Isla mujeres here is the link to our blog.
That’s why going to a Caribbean island sounds great to begin the year!
Do you know how the weather is in isla mujeres? It’s phenomenal all year!
If you want to escape from winter, and get a cold, Isla Mujeres is waiting for you.
This island has been blessed with a great weather all the year, but if you are used to cold climates, winter is the best season: is warm, but not as in summer; the days are clear and temperature kept between 67°and 83°.
So, what’s the main difference between winter and summer in the Caribbean?
All the information above, doesn’t mean that summer is extremely hot, but is perfect if you live in temperatures under 30° F and want an escape from snow and ice or simply want some sun and sand to relax from a chaotic year.
A breathtaking experience: swimming with bull sharks.
Some wild animals emigrate from cold areas to warmer areas, one example is bull shark.
Bull shark season takes place in the Yucatan Peninsula, precisely because of the warm waters from Riviera Maya’s coast. Appreciating these magnificent sharks alive and in their habitat is a real privilege that we can enjoy.
These magnificent animals swim in the Riviera Maya in winter!!
This is an experience that can only be lived in winter because female bull sharks need warm water to give birth, they choose the Mexican Caribbean to do so.And the best time for their baby sharks to spawn is between December and March.
You can interact with these animals that measure around 9 feet and can weigh more than 500 pounds. Due to their preference for lower depths, you’ll find bull sharks swimming at around 75 feet below the surface.
Most of all, you’ll be able to swim with these imposing sea creatures without interrupting their environment.
Seems too much adrenaline?? You can watch them swim too!
Yet, if you’d still like to go underwater but would rather keep your distance from the bull sharks, you can certainly do so. The bull shark observation tour allows you to get close, but not too close.
While you’re in the water, you can still feel the rush of adrenaline even several feet away from the sharks.
If you need more information, companies like Aqua World will be pretty interested to give you more information about this.
