I knew that ‘rainy season’ in Belize started from June to mid-November, but all I could focus on was finally revisiting the country that caused me to start pondering about relocating from the U.S. in the future. Plus, I’ve visited other countries during their supposed ‘rainy season’ and the worst that happened was a downpour spurt. Nothing that caused me to seek shelter, at least not for the entire day. Definitely nothing that caused me to reschedule and cancel planned excursions . Based on this history, I just knew Mama Nature would look out for her special one (ME!) and hold back her crocodile tears during my one week stay in San Pedro in June.
She quickly drenched my ego.
*random convo alert*
Mama Nature, I thought we were cool. I recycle (when I remember) and I don’t litter (well, yesterday I didn’t). Doesn’t this count for something? Why did you cry so much during my stay in Belize???
Her response? Silence. Absolute silence. Her actions spoke louder than words by showing me no llueve leniency.
It rained on day one,
It rained on day two.
I had to cancel several excursions,
Oh, Mama Nature, what did I do to you?
So, no, I didn’t explore the Mayan Temples. I didn’t visit the zoo nor Belmopan, the capital of Belize. I didn’t snorkel, scuba, snuba, zip line, kite surf, go cave tubing…
I bet you are wondering, ‘well dang SistaVoyage, what DID you do?’ I am glad you asked. Although my main plans didn’t go as planned, I did:
Sail the blue Caribbean Sea on a catamaran
Witness the chicken Drop
Tour San Pedro and Caye Caulker
Get a great massage at a great deal.
The latter made up for all of plans I had to cancel due to the weather
Question: Have you ever had to reschedule or cancel plans for your trip during your visit due to weather? If not for weather, what was the reason? How did you handle the disappointment?
