bad weather activities

My brother and I will be in PV for a week starting next Tuesday (we're 21 and 25). I'm wondering what are some things to do if it happens to rain all week like weather.com says? Just looking for a things to possibly do that we woudln't normally think of. Thanks!

first it won't. The forcasts are never correct. had 1 week that was forcasted for cloud and rain last Nov. Not 1 day of it. If it does who cares. Go to a bar, eat the local food, read a book, make new friends. meet a new Lady, tons of things to do

Weather.com doesn't say "rain all week", it says "Scattered T-Storms"

Which is closer to the truth, except they aren't scattered, they come late in the day, or night, after plenty of sun.

Just do the normal things... go to the beach, swimat your hotel pool, walk around downtown. No way is it going to pour rain 24/7 for your entire vacation. Most of the rains will likely be at night.

Not to mention, it is still HOT... I don't know about anyone else, but I just get wet, then I dry off, continuing about my business. Unless it is truly a downpour, then I duck into a bar and have a drink or three!

I guess you could always go to the movies.

Depending upon where you're staying, your hotel may have a bunch of activities. I know that the Riu Jalisco, where I stayed, broke out the blackjack tables and other games the one-and-only morning in rained during our two week stay.

The other thing to remember is that tropical rain is actually kinda nice - it's not the cold, miserable experience you're likely used to in DC. Tropical rain is more like being in a nice warm, al fresco, shower! If you do go out in the rain, just remember that white clothes can become see-through when wet................!!!!!
