Tulum used to be a place of solitude and worship for the Mayan kings and Gods. Now, it's a mystical and magical place that offers a unique tropical beach setting attracting millions of holidaymakers every year. With rising temperatures and lower rain chances, February is a great time to visit the Riviera Maya and a popular choice for those wanting to escape a dreary winter.
Compared to January's 70 mm, the total rainfall amount for the month drops down to 53 mm. That amount falls over six days in the month, so you probably won't need an umbrella; any rain that does fall is typically short-lived. The chance of rain on any given day is 20 percent. With seven hours of sunshine each day, you'll also want your sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen to protect your skin from sunburn.
The average daily temperature during this month is 24°C (about 75°F), a near perfect temperature. The lows at night drop down to 21°C (around 70°F), still a great temperature for enjoying a walk on the beach. The highs jump up to 27°C (about 81°F), feeling more like summer than the middle of winter and a welcome change from snow and blowing winds. You can definitely do some swimming and sunbathing this month, with sea temperatures of 26°C (around 79°F).
The highest recorded temperature for the resort in this month was a warm 35°C (about 95°F). At one point, the low dropped all the way down to 9°C (around 48°F), very chilly for this area but still a decent temperature compared to other parts of North America. Fortunately, you'll probably get temperatures closer to the average during your holiday this time of the year.
