Climate

The Dominican Republic has tropical weather with the average annual temperatures around 25°C (77°F). Dominican climate is sometimes called "the endless summer" for its consistently warm and sunny conditions. There are slight variations between the summer and winter months. The so-called 'cool' or winter season, runs from November to April. The humidity is relatively low during these months and it tends to cool down in the evenings much more than in the summer months. The coastal/beach regions generally experience highs of around 28°C (83°F) during the day and lows of about 20°C (68°F) in the evening.

The mountainous interior of the country is considerably cooler, and on the highest mountain peaks the thermometer can sometimes drop below freezing point. On rare occasions frost can even be seen on the top of these peaks. The summer season in the Dominican Republic runs from May to October. Average daily highs for the coastal regions rise to around 31°C (87°F) during the day, dropping down to about 22°C (72°F) at night. The summer months can be quite humid. *
