Finally. We have not had significant rains this calendar year that I can remember....maybe in about 6 months. This is not common for Merida per the locals.
The rainy season starts here in June and runs through October. During this time we will start getting rains about 5 or 6 days a week, up to a couple of times a day for 15 to 30 minutes on average. This also means that the mosquitos will start breeding, bats will have plenty to eat, and you absolutely have to mow your grass once a week or it grows out of control.
