Pristine beaches, turquoise waters and an endless supply of sunshine lure tourists to the Dominican Republic year-round. Although the area receives temperate weather throughout the year, the best time to visit is generally during the dry season lasting from November through April. The exception to this is the island's northern coast, whose dry season runs from May through October. During dry season months, the weather is pleasantly warm with cool nights and limited rainfall and humidity.

Temperatures rise slightly from May through November with the increased humidity making it seem hotter. The Caribbean's hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30, but the Dominican Republic's peak months are August and September. Luckily, the Dominican Republic is positioned in a well-protected area that usually receives only minor damages.
