What's with the rain?!

I am headed to Playa late next week and the weather forecasts are beginning to worry me. There seems to be quite a bit of rain in the forecast. I like booking trips to Mexico because it is almost always sunny and warm....especially Feb through April. What's the deal?! I need some fun in the sun!

If you didnt look at the weather forcasts then you woudnt worry. Right? It is the tropics, therefore rain is possible. Just go with the flow.

The Yucatan Peninsula is in the Tropics as such you may very well get some rain. This usually over quickly and the sun comes out again. Don't fret over the forcasts which mention rain most days, instead have a look at the webcams...

A friend just returned from 2 weeks at the Barcelo and advised 1.5 hours of rain during the entire stay.

I spent alot of time fretting about the weather....we had 2 days of 60% rain forecast and other days were 30%. It never rained! (It was overcast a few days, but still layed on the beach). Like everyone says....don't worry....there's nothing you can do about it anyway. I'm sure you will have a good time no mater what!!
