Some tips about Dominican Republic weather
There are certain months of the year that are better than others to travel to the Dominican Republic because of the various weather conditions. The temperatures here tend to be pretty consistent with temperatures of between 77 and 88 degrees Fahrenheit.
However, the heaviest tourism here is found in the winter months, which is when a rising number of people come here because of the glorious weather. Between December and April you can enjoy not only the high temperatures but you also get to benefit from day long sunshine, blue skies and cooling tropical breezes—the perfect combination.
If you come here in May you might experience rainfall, as this is the month where the most rain tends to fall in the Dominican Republic. However, the rainfall normally comes in short bursts and is quickly followed by the area's trademark sunshine.
From June until around the end of November is hurricane season here in DR, which means that you don't tend to find many tourists here during those months, with the vast majority coming here between December and April when the weather is pretty much perfect. Remember that, as with most tropical destinations, you need to consider carefully when to book your trip in terms of timing in order to avoid the rainy season or the hurricane season.
By and large, DR enjoys pleasant weather throughout the year with average temperatures ranging between 77F and 88F. Sometimes the humidity can be a little overwhelming but a dip in the Caribbean sea soon cools you off. Along the coasts, the evening temperatures are usually around 58F. You could rightly argue that DR weather is almost perfect...and I would agree!
