Weather for Sept 16-23rd

I leave for Iberostar paraiso del mar on the 16th. So far the forecast calls for rainy days. I've never been to Mexico so I'm wondering if this could put a damper on my trip or does the rain just come in spurts usually. Any insight would be appreciated

No storms in the forecast so you should be fine

A few points

- You booked in the rainy season (actually September is the HIGH rainy season)

- Hopefully your travel agent tell you this

- Thunderstorms in the forecast is the NORM

PS : What weather forecast site are you looking at

Most are poor so DO NOT USE them

I know it's high rain season but had to take my chance. My last hoorah for awhile since I'm getting surgery in October! I'm using the weather network, do you suggest another source?

Weather Network - so many can't read a tropical Caribbean forecast

It will ALWAYS show a thunderstorm somewhere on the coast

It does NOT mean the whole coast will get rain (1-5 mm) - that is enough to wet your toothbrush

The advice (ALWAYS) is to ignore the weather forecast

Enjoy the moment

If you check the amount of rain
