    Dominican Republic weather May

    What’s the weather like in the Dominican Republic in May?

    Located in the northern Caribbean, the Dominican Republic shares an island mass with Haiti. Its tropical climate brings consistently warm weather all year round. May can be quite showery on the island, with the northern shores seeing more rain than the south. If you do experience rain, it’s often a refreshing change from the warm springtime heat. You may want to wait until the dry season though, which runs from June to November, for more sun and less rain.

    Averages

    On the north coast of the island, Puerto Plata has an average temperature of 26°C in May, with highs of 31°C in the afternoon. Humidity’s often high at this time of year, so you’ll be grateful for regular dips in the Caribbean Sea, which is a lovely 27°C. Overnight, temperatures go down to a pleasant 20°C. There’s a high chance of showers as 170mm of rain usually falls over the course of the month. In the south of the island, temperatures are also 26°C on average, but the chance of rain is lower, with 60mm expected in May.
