There is typically a couple of rainy seasons in Ambergris Caye. June to November is typically the rainy season and it used to be that the rain would end in Novembe,r but it has been creeping now into December and January. 2014 was probably the rainiest rainy season that I have heard of. In 2014, it rained in more in October than I have ever seen it rain on the island before.
You will typically see rain from June to November. That will be consistent rain, but it is not a down pouring, constant rain. You are just going to have rain more frequently from June to November.
You will see some type of rain on a daily basis here in Ambergris Caye. There would be days without rain and there will be a few days in a row with rain. I would not say that it is tremendously consistent. It is not like the afternoon shower every day from June to November. You will just see a propensity to have more rain from June to November.
Typically in 2009 and 2010, the rain would typically stop after November and you would be waiting for it to rain again. In the last couple of years, it has rained quite a bit further and longer into December and January. In 2014, the rain stopped in January and typically it stops in November. We still saw a couple of showers in January, but then it begins to dry out. You may get rainfall a couple of times a month or you may not get any rainfall at all.
The rain doesn’t affect your day at all. You just have to be prepared. If you are out running errands you are going to catch potentially a bit of rain at some point throughout the day. You might have strong rains for a couple of days so people would be in their golf carts as opposed to walking or they would spend less time on the water.
