If you're looking for the perfect time to visit Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic, you should plan your trip during the winter season. From December to early April, the temperatures are cooler and the humidity is relatively low. The sea temperatures are also warm, making it ideal for swimming and snorkeling. However, this is also the high season as visitors from northern hemisphere countries flock to the island to enjoy the winter sun. The peak season for travel to Punta Cana is between December and March, with a lower peak during June and July.
During this time, tourists escape the cold of their home country and enjoy the warm weather of Punta Cana. A trip taken during the winter months can cost twice as much as a trip taken in the off-season. From June to November, Punta Cana faces hurricane season; this particular area is known to receive strong tropical storms and some years see 40 inches of rain at this time of year. If you're looking for a peaceful beach paradise, it's best to avoid visiting during Spring Break in the US (which usually falls sometime between March and mid-April).
