Weather in Dominican Republic

Consistently warm and bright, the only time the Dominican Republic doesn't shine is during its rainy season. While experiencing a longer rain period than its Caribbean neighbours, the DR's energetic southern heart, Santo Domingo, boasts drier conditions.

The Dominican Republic's semitropical climate leaves the island with a lengthy wet season between May and November. Average temperatures in summer range between 29 and 35 degrees celcius, and you can expect an average of seven to nine hours of sunshine a day. It is best to avoid the Dominican Republic between August and September, when hurricane season is at its peak.
