Worrying about the weather... best thing to do when it rains

A group of us are arriving on Wednesday 9/23 and will stay there 5 days... looking at the weather forecast, it shows raining for our entire stay. Does it usually sleep the whole day? Or it's more scattered?

What's the best things to do at PR if it rains all day? I'm assuming rainforest will be close and so are the beaches... We have cars and will stay at rio mar resort.

Thanks for the suggestion

Weather forecasts ALWAYS, repeat ALWAYS predict rain. While it rain somewhere on the island for sometime every day, showrrs are usually widely scattered and very brief. There's more likely to be rain up in the mountains (where the rain forests are located - hence the name while in the lowlands it's sunny and dry. Don't fret the weather you are likly to much more sun than rain. Pack the sunblock, you'll need it.

those foreign made forecasts are always wrong because they are not made in Puerto Rico and usually use San Juan forecast for the entire island (and even San Juan you can have a lot of rain in Rio Piedras and sunny in the coastline)

In the tropics, rain is usually scatter and does not last more than 30 minutes unless it is a big storm, but we do not have any for next week.

The sun is very strong. Keep in mind that even if it looks somewhat overcast, you can still get burned.

Look at the UV index! It's the tropics. It will rain. El Yunque is a "Rain Forest" It will rain.
