A Promise Kept and A Personal Note from Curt

As promised: no rain in March, no rain in April! Your San Pancho Weather guarantee was right on target for 2014.

I’d like to take credit for the accuracy of that prediction, but the fact is there has been no rain recorded in either March or April since keeping records for those months in 2009.

The same isn’t true for May, however. San Francisco, Nayarit had about 3/4 of an inch of rain in May of 2012 and the same amount in 2009. While there’s a chance we’ll have rain this month, you can plan on rainfall for June.

The high temperature in San Pancho last month was 87.5 F, the low was 59.6 F. Those readings well within the normal high and low temperatures for April. In contrast, the high Heat Index reading (temperature/humidity “feels like” index) reached 96.8 F in April, a full ten degrees above the high Heat Index readings since 2009!

There’s plenty of evidence that March and April are ideal months for your friends to visit the Riviera Nayarit. This year proves that once again.

If you ever click through from the San Pancho Weather site to view our readings at the Weather Underground, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find an all-new format and display there. (If you haven’t checked the WU, rest assured it is all about weather…and nothing else!).

Around town, hats off to Shannon and crew for getting our act cleaned up by making trash barrels available and daily limpio activities. With dozens of volunteers, he’s proved once again that we can make a positive difference for everyone, natives and ex-pats alike. Kudos also for Bob Farmer and his volunteers for giving the kids of this town a festive Dia de los Niños!

On a personal note, I want to thank everyone who has expressed their sympathy on Cele’s passing. We were together in marriage and were truly best friends for 48 years. The death of a partner is an event none of us is prepared for, but with friends and acquaintances in this town offering their support and comfort, the process of making the transition has been eased. I’m blessed with two wonderful kids who were here to say goodbye to their mom and then stayed on with me.

From close friends, to what my friend Bill calls “familiar strangers” I greet on the street, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindnesses. Cele made some very close friends here, she loved this town, its people, EntreAmigos and “her” children’s library and the warmth of the environment…and the warmth of the people.

For those who’ve asked if I’m remaining in San Pancho, the answer is “of course”. It’s my home.



  1. Such lovely words for your amazing Cele. I love the photo of she and Rodolfo. Think of you often and our prayers and good thoughts are sent your way. See you in San Pancho!
