When to visit:
The weather in the Dominican Republic is warm year-round. However, it experiences some of the effects of the Atlantic hurricane season and gets hit with a major storm every decade or so. The rainy season takes place during the summer, which occurs between May and October. August-September is prime hurricane season. Summer can get very warm, humid and wet, with July and August being the warmest months of the year.

The best time to visit Dominican Republic is the winter season between December and late February, when the climate is at its optimum, having cooled down to more comfortable levels. The best time for snorkelling and scuba diving is July onwards for warmer waters and clear views of the surrounding coral reef. Between December and March you can spot giant humpback whales in the Bay of Samana.
