    So, I am officially a future Cabo bride!!! My FI and I settled on RIU Santa Fe, Septemeber 25th, 2009. Our date and time are confirmed...we booked for 5pm in the gazebo area :)

    We are fully aware that it is hurricane season, this was a risk we took knowingly but we really wanted September and heard from several sources that Cabo was very very rarely hit by hurricanes because of it's location. So we went for it!!!!

    My question: Since we should be expecting brief showers since it is rainy season, what time of day do they usually come at? Like is it typical for night showers? or most likely morning rain or is it different ever time? Any input would be helpful as if there is a typical time of day that it rains we may request to have our ceremony time changed since it is outdoors.

    Thanks in advance!

    lisa, i'm sorry but my experience with rain in cabo is that it is different all the time, we were there at the end of september almost 2 yrs ago now and did not experience a drop of rain, i hope your have the same luck.

      Hello lgarner83,

      There is really no set time for the rain season in Cabo. The only time that rains here in Cabo is when we have a tropical storm or hurricane close by. And as you know, hurricanes /storms are very unpredictable. Once the water temperature warms up, it is a magnet for developing storms.

      Hurricane season officially begins on May 15 and ends on November 15 each year. But during the 15 years I have been living here, it is usually august, september and the first 2 weeks of october where rain happens.

      Hopefully this answers your question :)

      Have a great day!

        Thank you, it does! I guess we'll just stick with our ceremony time and hope for the best!

          Hi lgarner83,

          It's really rare when it rains in Cabo, but you may get some cloudy days especially during the months of August and September. It's really ahead of time to check for possible hurricanes of storms, but I lived here for 10 years now and I only had one big hurricane.

          This is the web page that I use, hope it helps.
          San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico Forecast : Weather Underground
          It has a "plan your trip" tool that could be helpful.

          Anyway have in mind a plan B in case of rain (inside a restaurant at the Hotel, or a Ballroom).

          Good luck!

                I'm in the same predicament. I'm booked for Aug. 22, 2009 and know the weather is unpredictable. Look on the bright side, rain is supposed to be good luck
