You like to visit one of the big Carnival parades or Merengue and Bachata Music Festivals, enjoy the Flamboyant bloom, pick a fresh mango from the tree or watch the humpback whales in the Bay of Samana? Our Program Advisor Tina Klemencic tells you when it’s the best time for it.
With an average temperature of 28 degrees Celsius (82 F) and water temperatures between 26 to 29 degrees, the Dominican Republic is a place you can visit all year round. Over 270 sunny days per year will booster your Vitamin D-depot. Hurricane season is mainly during the months of August to October. The south side of the island (Santo Domingo) tends to get the most rain during July and August while on the north coast (Sosua/Puerto Plata) rainy season is in December and January. Though due to its tropical, but pleasant breezy island climate, short and heavy rain showers are common throughout the whole year. No wonder why the country is so lush and green 😉
