Showers or Rain?

Geesh, its been great for weeks and now its supposed to start raining the day we get there. Showers are ok, but day in day out rain is not acceptable. Anyone have any experience with these forecasts? It seems like the wrong time of year for constant rain, or is this just wishful thinking.

When we went weather.com showed rain every day!!

But...what happens is a shower or rain storm will pass through

and then be gone to sunny skies.

We were lucky...it ended up only raining one late afternoon.

We just went back to the room...some others just went to

the swim up bar and continued their party.

And then it rained another day right before dinner. We just

went to dinner and by the time we were done..the skies were


It comes and goes so fast..!! Plus there is stuff to do if it

does rain.

We took some DVD's just in case- but never used them. We did

take CD's. I highly recommend this! Just makes it more relaxing and fun!!

Darn, I also saw that forcast. We are scheduled for the 24th through the 6th and were really looking forward to sunny skies. Last year about the same time, we ran into a lot of rain also. Just like you, we have been watching and saw nothing but blue skies and no rain. Does Dos Equis taste as good in the rain as in the sun?

I was there the first of February. It was cloudy most days; only a couple of days of total sunshine. But even with the clouds, I got a tan! We played a little pool when it rained, and sat in one of the restaurants, ate appetizers, and dranks lots of beer. Our last full day, it was cloudy all day, and actually a little chilly on the beach. I wrapped up in a towel a couple of times, but every time the sun broke out, I threw off the towel to catch a little sun.

I think you're right; it's the wrong time of year for all-day rain...you'll probably just get passing showers...and you'll still manage to have a great time!
