The Dominican Republic is a year-round destination, but the best time to visit Punta Cana is between March and May. This is when the high season influx of visitors begins to dissipate while temperatures remain mild. For those who want to experience Carnival in Punta Cana, February is the time to visit. Travellers willing to gamble on the weather will get the most affordable prices of the year between June and November.
If your key decision point on when to go is the weather, December to April are the best months to travel to Punta Cana. As I explained in my weather blog, these months have the most stable weather, less rain, perfect temperatures and an abundance of sunshine. Among those months, January to March are the most recommended if you want to narrow down the list even further. May is one of the most ideal months of the year in Punta Canta, with relatively low tourist volume.
Therefore, May, June, September, October and November are your months to go to Punta Cana to take advantage of the lowest prices while still having a very reasonable climate that probably on 90 days is still better than in your hometown?. Especially if you choose May and November ( first half of December), you will be out or at the end of hurricane season, you can still enjoy some of the great high season weather and can take advantage of the lowest possible rates in Punta Cana and beyond. When Punta Cana has its best weather, between November and February, it is not surprising that it is also when it is at its busiest. That's why I would like to give you all my experiences of living 5 years in the Dominican Republic and full information about when is the best time to go to Punta Cana.
