we are arriving friday, and I see rain forecast for the 1st 5 days we are there.....when it says "showers", is that the type that rains hard for a short time and then blows away, or should I be worried about having to drink all my Belikins inside????either way Im pumped up about going, just curious.....;

Cajanman, Most of the rains are "short-lived", but some times it last longer....We always (in July,the rainy season)take several of the throw away panchos..They are cheap & don't take up much room....Just go & don't worry,..You will have a wonderful time....All of the bars are covered, so when it rains just find the nearest one..... laugh laugh wink

Johnboy, couldn't have said it better myself! We had a few cloudy days when we were there. Stayed indoors till we were sick of it, then went exploring in the golf cart anyway. Turned out we had a blast bar-hopping in the rain!

I often have a little purse/pocket-sized poncho in my suitcase that I can easily carry-about in case of showers. But the times I've forgotten or it rained more heavily, more often, I head over to the hardware store and pick up an inexpensive yellow rainslicker. I give it to a local before I leave. By the same token, one year while down at Christmas, a travel companion gave me a small collapsable umbrella as a gift. It came in quite handy that year. You can buy them pretty inexpenisvley at home and leave it behind when you leave too, if you are so inclined to do so. We've also found ourselves out walking about in a downpour, and all we did was laugh.

More importantly you'll want shoes that can withstand a little mud.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

How about a rain charm that is guaranteed to keep the skies sunny and beautiful? The cost is modest at $50.00 plus 12.95 S&H. Charm doesn't work in a rainforest. Provide an e-mail address if interested.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

One thing to remember, if you are looking at the forecast for Belize City, it will probably be a bit nicer out on AC. cool
