It is different every day, it all depends on where you are on the island and what weather pattern the island is under.

Last week, there was a big weather system coming up from South America. We did get rain, but here in Rio Grande, we had rain at night and some sun-showers during the day. But we could see the rain clouds forming over by SJ.

An umbrella is always a good idea in the tropics and during the start of rainy season. But, the best bet is to just hop in the car and drive- you will eventually find a dry, sunny day somewhere on the island.

I always say, we need the rain to keep us green and tropical.

Just like most places, there is no control on what the weather will do.

There is still a lot to do here even if it is overcast or raining.

hey suzyny,

why dont you make a review of your trip (overall) and post it as ONE topic. you seem to have had a quite a few experiences and are posting them individually, much easier for all of us if you posted it all in one review.

thanks!

We just got May 1 and we did experience more rain than we did last year at the same time.

But, we made the best of it, beelining for the SW corner Cabo Rojo/Lajas where the rain wasn't quite as heavy and it's typically dryer. And not having a beach day every day, gave us a good reason to head up into the mountains to explore the charming towns, plazas, food and people.

I'll take PR anyday, rain or shine! An enchanting island and people.
