Our Semi-private Tours are very similar to Private Tours in that you enjoy the tour along with your family and/or your group of friends in your own language. Our Semi-private Tours always include your transportation but with prearranged arrival and departure times, namely, you must respect the schedule stated in this website and by your Tour Guide in relation to the Tour you acquire.
The Yucatan Peninsula features tropical weather that may be considered strong but tolerable, especially in Spring and Summer (from mid-March to October) with an average high temperature of 33° C (91.4° F) and an average low temperature of 18° C (64.4° F) in the center of the Peninsula (Chichen Itza). On the Northeastern part of Yucatan (Mexican Caribbean), an average high temperature of 31° C (87.8° F) and an average low temperature of 21.5° C (70.7° F).
The best time to visit the Mexican Caribbean and the Yucatan Peninsula is towards the end of the year (from November to February) when we enjoy really nice weather conditions because temperatures are not so high, having an average high temperature in central Yucatan (Chichen Itza) of 29.5° C (85.1° F) and an average low temperature of 14.8° C (58.64° F); our average high temperature on northeastern Yucatan (Mexican Caribbean) is 29° C (84.2° F) and the average low temperature is 18.3° C (64.94° F) during these 4 months. This Mexican Caribbean season is especially nice if you want to get away from the cold winters!
Honestly, late Summer and practically the first half of the Autumn season (late-August, September and October) are not very recommendable for vacationing in the Mexican Caribbean and the Yucatan Peninsula due to poor weather conditions. We have many intense, but brief showers. Due to these climate circumstances, most tourists do not feel like touring, the weather can be intimidating and in the end they decide not to do any sightseeing. What's more, late August, September and October make up the riskiest period due to hurricanes throughout the Caribbean.
*Important: We get cool breezes in the evening throughout the Peninsula all year long. We provide you a detailed list regarding the weather conditions per month in our different touring destinations. This way you will be able to asses the weather and decide what is best for you and your loved ones about your journeys.
Resorts in Mexico are very well safeguarded and the Mexican Caribbean and the Yucatan are no exception. Actually, the state of Yucatan where Chichen Itza is located is considered the safest state in the country due to its exemplary model Police Corporation. However it is not advisable to leave the tourist spots and speedways or roadways that make up your touring routes. Do not wander in areas that are far away from touristic points such as the outskirts and some neighborhoods in Playa del Carmen and Cancun because you may be subject to robbery and violence; do not wander either in the mangroves or in the jungle (Yucatecan Sub-tropical) around Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza and the Cenotes (Sink-hole waters) because it could become a very hazardous adventure where you will undoubtedly meet extremely dangerous animals such as rattle snakes, fer-de-lance (a venomous pit viper), crocodiles, felines such as jaguars, pumas and margays, aside from nasty insects which can be poisonous and very toxic plants. The terrain in mangroves and all over the jungle is extremely hazardous because you can get stranded easily and very quickly. Without special survival techniques, it is impossible to survive. On top of everything, the heat is very strong, especially in Spring and Summer.
For example, at archaeological sites and aquatic parks, there are boundaries for tourists. These places are very well marked with a “No Trespassing” sign. These boundaries are for your protection.
For those who love to play in the ocean, thimble jelly fish may represent a risk to your health. Since they stay near the seashore they can cause allergic reactions, especially because they are difficult to spot. We advise you to avoid swimming the 2nd, “3rd” and 4th weeks of April.

*When you are in Playa del Carmen and you need to call a number that starts with 998 (Cancun area code) you must dial 01 998 and the 7 digits if you call from a non-cell-phone number. If you call from a cell-phone number just dial 998 plus 7 digits, regardless if the number you want to call to is a cell-phone or not. If you are in Playa del Carmen and need to call a non-cell-phone number from any kind of telephone just dial the last 7 numbers skipping the area code of Playa del Carmen (984), but in case you want to call a cell-phone you have to dial the 3 numbers that make up the area code (984) omitting the numbers before the area code (01). Hence, you would just dial 984 plus 7 digits if you intend to contact a cell-phone number.
