Dominican Republic

With more than 250 miles of superb golden coastline, it is little wonder that the Dominican Republic is becoming the Caribbean holiday destination of choice among travellers.

By being substantially larger than many of its Caribbean counterparts, the Dominican Republic offers a broad selection of dream locations from which to enjoy the Caribbean holiday of your choice, whether you’re seeking a romantic escape or something to appeal to the entire family.

The Dominican Republic is an adventure, whether you're choosing from more than 1000 beaches along the north, west or south coasts, venturing inland to explore volcanoes and lakes, or discovering shipwrecks and coral underwater.

Packing tips

A lush part of the world, it is the miles of golden coastline that have put the Dominican Republic on the map. Many go for the beach resorts though there is a lot of geographical diversity and colonial architecture to enjoy inland.

If you are going to one of the luxurious all-inclusive beach resorts then, aside from swimwear, there isn’t a great deal that you need. So with your beachwear and cover-ups in, with sunblock and after sun, make sure you have a couple of pairs of flip flops with casual shorts and t-shirts in there. You should get beach towels when you are there so that’s another thing you don’t need to worry about.

In the evening it gets a little cooler but you only need pants and sweaters made from light materials to give you a little protection. There aren’t many mosquitos but it is always good to cover up as much of your body as possible.

If you are going outside of your resort then a lot of things will be sorted for you but comfortable shoes and a day bag will probably be useful. Finally, being inside a resort, things can be overpriced or difficult to get so it is recommended to carry a decent toiletry bag.

Weather in the Dominican Republic

With a tropical climate, the Dominican Republic has year-round warm temperatures but two seasons: dry and wet. While the thermostat might not change very much, the rain gauge does.

The dry season is the peak tourist time in the Dominican and this runs between December and April. There is plenty of sun and a comfortable heat that stays around the mid to high 20s each and every day, morning and evening.

Temperatures rise slowly during these months and when it comes to the wet season from May through November it is very warm – but also humid. The amount of rainfall varies across the country but it can be an uncomfortable time in paradise. August and September are months when the country is on alert for official hurricane season.
