What to do when it rains?

I'm travelling to Playa del Carmen next Friday for 2 weeks and we look set to be washed out for the first week at least! I was just wondering if there is anything to do when it rains in playa? Any attractions that are worth visiting or excursions that don't involve getting soaked in the rain? Help please

Are you traveling with a significant other? I can think of lots of things you can do in the rain if you are two consenting adults. ;)

But seriously, don't give the weather report too muh importance at this point. It'll probably change.

There are many cantinas to visit in Playa. Many of them have beautiful caribbean views requiring no shoes for service. The are cenote and caves to visit.

I'm always wary to post about weather because, in all honesty, there are so many posts about it and nobody can control it, so people respond accordingly. That being said, I'll be heading down the same time as you and IF it rains, no big deal. I'm on vacation and will make the most of it. I dont mind getting a little wet. HOWEVER, I agree that it would be nice to see some helpful suggestions from seasoned travellers on what to do for entertainment in or around Playa if it happens to rain all day one or two days during my stay. Books are packed, movies downloaded onto my kindle...but what are some other options? Thanks!

Take a walk in the rain (it's warm, why not!)

Have a drink.

Walk back, dry off.

READ some more.

Have another drink.

Take a nap.

Get ready for dinner.

EAT. Take your time! Enjoy each course.

Gather w/new friends at the bar.

Listen to some music.

Dance a bit.

Go back to room.

READ yourself to sleep if you can still see.

Sleep.

Hopefully wake up to sunshine.
