What’s the weather like in the Dominican Republic in November?
The Dominican Republic’s in the northern Caribbean and shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti. The island’s quite mountainous which means there’s differences in the tropical weather depending on where you’re going. The weather is nice all year round and the country’s tall mountains will protect you from wind in the south and west. The north coast’s wet season’s from November to January, while it’s from May to November for the rest of the island. You’ll get much less rain in November compared to earlier months and when it does rain, it’s usually in short and heavy downpours that often come in the evenings.
The average high in capital Santo Domingo is 31ºC in November and things stay nice and warm in the evenings. At 28ºC, the sea’s perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 103mm of rain over 14 days, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so bring plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down just after 6pm.
