What is the best way to translate the phrase "for the rest of the day" into Spanish, as in the following examples:

  • I'm tired, I think I want to stay home for the rest of the day.
  • Do you think it will keep raining for the rest of the day?

1 Answer 1


I'd translate it to:

(por) el resto del día.

Your examples:

Estoy cansado, creo que me quiero quedar en casa (por) el resto del día.

¿Piensas que seguirá lloviendo (por) el resto del día?

  • +1 Maybe "durante" can also be used instead of "por", though I'd say that just "el resto del día" is more usual.
