2. Re: May akumal weather

that's great to hear Vancouver, we are also going in May, my favorite time to travel...what is the rain like in mid-may? Humidity doesn't bother me nor does a little rain but I am hoping that we don't see any major rainstorms that last all day...is this a regular occurrence in May??

I guess I must bring the clouds with me. One two seperate occasions (one last year in early May the other in late May) there were heavy clouds ~70% of the time. Some times it would rain, other times it would just be overcast. Not a fan of either on my "SUNNY BEACH" vacation. (impacts underwater visibility) So...That's why I'm going in April this time.

I guess you just gotta roll the dice, ya know.

This is a tropical area so storms can roll in and stay a few days

Normally you get a short burst of rain

Last May for the 1st 2 weeks, fantastic weather - next 2 weeks not great

Not the norm though

Did the last two weeks of may last year and it was mixed but still had a wonderful holiday, trying the first two weeks in may this time so fingers crossed. Either way it's going to be way better than home.

May is a great month, nice and hot but with a sea breeze near the ocean, longest period of rain I remember there was about 30 minutes, we missed the first half hour of Happy Hour at Lol-Ha and the electric went out (but came back on quickly due to the generator) and when we got to Lol-Ha the blenders were whirring away like mad. Have a wonderful trip, going back myself then.

We had more than 30 minutes of rain a few times last year but as I say still had a great time but I get the impression the weather was a bit bizarre for the end of May.
