    I'm seeing different sunset times for late May in the Riviera Maya, and I want to know what it really is! I have seen anything from 7:21 to 8:39, and I just want it cleared up! We'd like some sunset shots, but I don't know how long we can get our photogs to stay, so I'm hoping for the 7 pm time:) Anyone know?

      I'm also getting married in May and the wedding coordinator told me that the sun will set at around 7:30pm....

        7:30ish sounds right as I got married April 1st and it was around 6:15 or something like that. Daylight savings time kicked in a few days later and that changed to 7:15ish, and since you are a month and a half after that the days would be longer so 7:30ish makes sense.

        This website confirms that.

        I don't know why you are seeing discrepencies between websites. The only confusing times are when daylight savings time kicks in and ends. Then the sunset time can change by one hour from one day to another! This is what happened to me and I based my whole schedule on the wrong time (I had looked at April 1 2007 not April 1 2008, and it just so happened daylight savings time had started on April 1st in 2007 but wasn't starting until a few days later in 200,

          Thanks ladies! It looks like my hoping worked then! If we have dinner set at 7, we should still be able to get some awesome pictures with the sun going down at 6 and 6:30 (I like the way it looks when the light is fading), so that will be perfect!
