We often are asked by our guests when sunset happens here in the Mayan Riviera. This is so they can plan out departure times for sunset cruises or know when to have their wedding ceremonies aboard our boat.
A handy guide that we often refer to is timeanddate.com's chart for the region. Time & Date shows you everything you'll need to make the right decision for activities and timing while on vacation.
There is a column for sunrise, sunset, day length, even the angle of the sun at certain times of day! Some of it is probably more info than you may need, but it's definitely a handy tool, with sunrise/sunset/day length probably being the most important details for visitors to the region.
The chart shouldn't just be for those planning yacht tours, though...
Are you having a wedding on the beach, planning to propose to someone here in Playa del Carmen or even just wondering how much sun you can pack into a day?
Wedding tip: Check the sunset time to see when the best hour is for your photographer, also known as "Golden Hour."
Follow this link to see a sample of April 2016's details. At the bottom of the chart on their website you will find links for the sunrise and sunset times for the rest of the months as well.
Enjoy your vacation, and if you have any other questions about the region, feel free to get in touch!
