Going to Royal Decameron 6/30-How's the weather??

Post by mballard » Fri Jun 10, 2005 10:35 pm

Hello-

I'm a newbie to this bulletin board!! This will be my first trip to PV - been to Cancun & Cozumel, Jamaica, Punta Cana, Grand Cayman and Aruba, and I must say PV is the best deal so far!! Everything I've read makes it sound absolutely awesome, so I can wait to get there.

We normally travel in April or May, but had to wait til later this year, so I'm kind of concerned what the weather will be like?? Has anyone travelled to PV the first week of July? Please tell me that I shouldn't be worried about rain!!! I wouldn't be so worried if every time I turned on the TV, I saw news about Hurrican Season, which just begun!! Just looking for a little positive reinforcement from the pro's here!!

I will be travelling with my husband, sister and her husband. We'll be staying at Royal Decameron from 6/30 thru 7/7. Will anyone else be there during this time? Would love to meet new people and make new friends while we're there!

Less than 3 weeks to go!!!

For up to date weather gp to http://weather.yahoo.com/regional/mxxx.html. It should be a lot cheaper than the Caymans (a place I love) unless you are very high maintanice. Both places have wonderful people. I had a diving accident on Grand Cayman in 74. I would have died had not those wonderful people. Doctors & staff at the hospital took extraordinary efforts in saving me!

We have been to the Royal Decameron 6 times. We love it. The weather can be rainy in June. Our daughter went in June and the sun did not shine, but it was very hot. about 40 celcius. That was their experience, but you could be lucky. We usually go in February to get away from the snow. It is a beautiful resort and I could not find anything to complain about. Anything extra that you want all you have to do is ask for it. It is very clean and the food is excellent.

We have been to PV during the summer at least 8 times during the last 5 years and never once were we rained out for a whole day. Maybe that's just luck, but my luck doesn't run that way on the good side. It has been very sunny, regardless of what the webcam looks like. Usually the only rain we see is late in the PM or at night. In summer, PV gets very green because of the rain, so its really a beautiful time to be there. BTW it is very humid, watch your camera lens fog up when you leave your airconditioned room. Our 1st year we didn't notice and the first couple of days we had very "foggy" pictures to remember PV by.

Hey Melis:
I haven't seen you on the board in a long time as you say. How was your trip to the Dominican Republic?

Just remember that PV doesn't have a weather station in the city, so online forecasts are only partially accurate.

Friends in PV tell me they had their first real rain of the season last night - a good downpour with thunder and lightning, and everything is fresh and green this morning. (-:

Don't worry, I'm sure there will be plenty of sun when you arrive. And remember - it's just as easy to sunburn under a hazy cloudy sky as in full on sunshine!

Actually, it is EASIER to burn when it is overcast than when it is sunny. I know this first hand :-( I think the rationale is that when it is overcast, your body generally feels cooler and you tend to be less careful about sunscreen, turning, etc. So be EXTRA CAREFUL when it is overcast.

I was at the Decameron last year at this time, and while it was amazingly hot and humid, for the most part the rain held off - we didn't have one day spoiled by the rain, and the last 4 days (out of a couple weeks) the rain started. It was AWSOME. I clouded over around 4pm, the wind picked up then it rained like crazy for about an hour. Then the clouds blew out and it was beautiful in the evening. The rain was cooling and refreshing, and made you feel ready for a wild night out. I loved it and will certainly be back - but in a condo in old-town this time.
