any reassurance please

Post by MariaC » Mon Apr 18, 2011 12:23 pm

Hi, I'm after some re-assurance please! :)
I'm going to Tobago this Thursday and I've never been anywhere like this before, I was lucky enough to win the trip in a competition and am very grateful to be going. I haven't travelled very much before and have been keeping my eye on the weather forecast, which isn't looking too great. Will I still have a good time? I was looking forward to some boat trips, the rainforest and fishing (and sun!), but will it be possible if the weathers too stormy? I guess I'm just worrying that I'll be stuck in the hotel for the week if the weathers really bad? Some people have told me that it rains then gets sunny again, but the weather reports are very different depending on which website i look on. Any reassurance or advice at all would be gratefully recieved! Thanks in advance.

Hello Maria

Welcome aboard! :D

Fear not, I'm sure you will have a wonderful holiday. Do not take too much notice of the weather reports. It seldom rains all day. Most of the rain is overnight and/or particularly during the first hour or two after dawn. You will often find it clears as soon as the sun gets up and burns off the cloud. Showers can develop very quickly - but equally clear within minutes; half an hour later you will be hard-pressed to see that it has rained. And remember: the rain is warm.

I would echo that - on the odd occasion it rained for us over the past 2 weeks we just jumped in the swimming pool!! 30 minutes later we had got out and were sun bathing again!!
