How to spend a rainy day in the Carribean

Ahh the Caribbean… Hours of joy tanning under a hot and warm sun, drinking a pina colada. The Caribbean is well known for its great weather, its wild life, dense forests and spectacular beaches and coral reefs. While you can choose your destination and or resort, you cannot choose your weather. And throughout your stay, between days or warmth and sunshine, you may encounter some more grayish day, even rainy days. But a few days of rain (which by the way rarely happen without some periods of sunshine in between) should not put a stop at positive vacation spirit. There are plenty to do around the resort. Here are some tips on how to spend a rainy day in the Caribbean.

Puerto Rico being the exception, most Caribbean islands or countries don’t have the big shopping mall we are used to at home. And anyway, if you wanted to spend a day at the mall, wouldn’t you just do it at home?

A day at the spa
Try the spa! Treat yourself to amazing massages, therapeutic bathes, and an incredibly relax atmosphere. The spa will sure invigorate your skin and spirit from those days of sun tanning, drinking and partying. After a day at the spa, you will be more than ever ready to brave the sun of the Caribbean!

Walk to the nearby market
You will find many markets where you can find souvenirs at a fraction of the resort price. It may sound strange, but going to the market on a rainy day is best. Those markets are often located 1 or 2 miles away from the resort. And while it may not look like that much of a long walk, trust me, under the hot sun of the Caribbean, you increase your chances of getting bad sunburns. This is why the walk to the markets is like a breeze and much more enjoyable on a cloudy or rainy day.

Why not make those rainy days an educational day? Bring more than memories from the Caribbean, bring some local knowledge! Example of great museum : the Bob Marley Museum, obviously in Jamaica, the Museo FundaciĆ³n Ron Havana Club in Cuba, which explain the process of making rum, or simply the Plaza de la Cultura, a historical plaza full of museums in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

A few days of rain and clouds should not ruin your holidays. There are so much to do in the Caribbean. And remember why you went there for, to relax and forget about the stress of everyday’s life. So smile and enjoy the rainy days!
