When and Where to Visit the Dominican Republic
When to Visit the Dominican Republic
Any time is a good time to visit the Dominican Republic because of its warm and generally sunny climate all year round. Some call the weather here 'the endless summer'. There are months where it is more likely you'll have rain. If you wish to avoid these periods, please visit our Climate section to find out when these are, as these occur at different times depending on the area of the country you may be visiting. The busiest tourism season in the Dominican Republic runs from December through April, where many North Americans and Europeans visit to get a warm, tropical break from the cold temperatures in their home countries. The next busiest period is in the summer months, June through September, when the majority of visitors are made up of Europeans visiting for their long summer vacations. Generally, the busier the season, the more in advance you should begin to plan your visit in order to secure your flight and accommodations of choice. Accommodation rates fluctuate slightly (are generally higher) during the busier tourism months, but almost all other costs, such as food & beverages, excursions, sporting activities, etc., remain constant year-round.
