The best time of year to visit Punta Cana in Dominican Republic

Punta Cana is an area in the east of the Dominican Republic. It has almost no villages or people, but consists only of palm trees, beautiful beaches and luxury hotel resorts where tourists are pampered in mostly all-inclusive packages.

Punta Cana has a tropical savanna climate which means great average temperatures, a lot of sunshine and very little rainfall. And if it rains it is usually of relatively short duration. The seawater has year-round pleasant temperatures.

As in the whole area there is a chance to encounter hurricanes, although the chances in Punta Cana are smaller than further west. If you want to visit Punta Cana without a risk of hurricanes best would be in the period from December to April.
