Believe or not, there are some benefits to the rainy season in Guatemala. For one, because the rainy season engulfs the hot weather of Spring, Summer and Autumn, our Summer is actually very comfortable to the point that most Guatemalans actually call it Winter.
The rainy season also brings all the necessary water for everything to bloom which makes the landscape in Guatemala vibrant green. This, of course, also makes the production of food, such as vegetables and maize.
Last but not least, for photography, it makes possible to take good photos during the hours when normally you couldn’t such lunch. Of course, the clouds can also make interesting patterns which make photographs even more appealing.
What other benefits can you share with us about the rainy season?
