They usually go away fast and the sun shines again soon, but in heavy rain days some tours are interdicted to guarantee the safety of its visitors. Only in these cancellation situations the money is refunded, or, if possible, the tour is rescheduled for another day.
If your tour is cancelled, here are a few options of what to do if it is raining.

Every night the knowledgeable Henrique presents his stand up about snakes! The project is an environmental education project, offering information about non venomous snakes.

Although the sun is not shining, rain does not interfere as much in these snorkeling tours because the water stays calm in the springs, and its clarity remains. Thus the wonderful underwater world can be witnessed.
