Since moving to Grand Cayman, I have experienced many days that begin with the sun shining, but soon turn into a rainy and washed out day. It always makes me think of the visitors to the island whose plans for the day have likely shifted dramatically due to the weather. It is always good to have a back-up plan when on vacation in order to avoid simply sitting around and waiting for the rain to pass.
There is always going to be something interesting to do in rainy weather no matter where you travel to, and sometimes it can encourage you to learn a little more about the history of a destination that you may not have taken the time to do otherwise. My number one pick for what to do in rainy weather, is to visit a local museum. The history of any destination holds the key to why a destination has become what it is today, and taking the time to learn a little about it is always worth the time.
My second pick for what do do in rainy weather, is a local cooking class. Every country has a local cuisine worth exploring, and learning to cook a local dish from a local chef is a great way to spend some time indoors.
There are many things you can do on a rainy day to make the most of your vacation, and it is always a good idea to be prepared, because unfortunately no on can control the weather!
