Punta Cana Dominican Republic

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Weather

Punta Cana lies on the Dominican Republic’s small east coast, just south of Bavaro. The coastline here is renowned for its beautiful white sandy beaches and great weather. The Dominican Republic lies in the middle of the Caribbean region and makes up the eastern two thirds of Hispaniola Island, which it shares with Haiti to the west. Punta Cana is about 100 miles to the east of the Republic’s capital Santo Domingo.

As you’d expect for a resort in the Caribbean, the consistently warm average sea temperature means that you can go swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving at any time of the year. The sea temperature is at its coldest during the dry season, when it averages at 26°C during February and March. The sea temperature is at its warmest during the wet season, when it averages at 28°C between June and September.


The dry season lasts from December to April and this is the most popular time to visit Punta Cana. The start of this season arguably sees the best weather of the year as temperatures are slightly cooler and more comfortable. Temperatures are at their lowest in January and February, with daily highs of around 29°C and daily lows of around 21°C, creating an overall average temperature of 25°C. The highest temperature registered in Punta Cana during the dry season is 36°C, which was recorded in both March and April. On the other hand, the lowest temperature registered in the resort during the dry season is 13°C, which was recorded in January.

Sometimes, daytime temperatures can rise into the mid-30s but the hottest days are relieved by the cooling trade winds that visit the island. The ‘alize’ is a well known trade wind in the Caribbean which blows from the northeast, mainly between November and February. During this time, the wind speeds vary between 0 m/s (calm) to 7 m/s (moderate breeze), almost never going above 10 m/s (fresh breeze). Located the island’s east coast, Punta Cana is in a perfect location to benefit from this cooling breeze and as a result it is one of the cooler places on the island.
