Weather Experience: Poor StarStar

We spent 14 days in the Maldives, the first 5-6 days we had no rain, great weather for snorkeling. The remaining days it just rained like buckets, you had the feeling that the island was going to sink soon. You could only go out of the room to eat, which was very frustrating. I would never fly there again at this time of year.— This text has been automatically translated into English
