Dominican Republic


There are two seasons in the Dominican Republic: the dry season (from November to April) and the rainy season (from May to October). The dry season is the most pleasant, as the heat is less stifling, the rain less frequent and the humidity lower. Temperatures hover around 29°C during the day and dip to about 19°C at night.

During the rainy season, the showers are heavy, but short, so it is still possible to travel. Rain is most frequent from May to mid-June. In the rainy season, the average temperature is 31°C during the day and 22°C at night. The number of hours of daylight remains fairly constant throughout the year. Hurricanes, though rare, occur during the rainy season.

During the rainy season, an umbrella is useful for staying dry during brief tropical showers. To visit certain attractions you must wear a skirt that covers the knees or long pants. For evenings out, you might need more formal clothes, as a number of places have dress codes. Finally, if you expect to go hiking in the mountains, bring along some good hiking boots and a sweater.
