Punta Cana

Located on the Dominican Republic’s Coconut Coast, Punta Cana is a luxury resort that has very hot and humid weather for most of the year.

The best time to visit Punta Cana is when temperatures have cooled to more comfortable levels as the summer can get very warm, humid and wet. The average temperature ranges from 25°C to 28°C, with July and August being the warmest months of the year.

The dry season is a popular time to visit the resort because there’s less rainfall and just as much sunshine as the summer. The coolest temperatures are in January and February, but the daily high is still a pleasant 25°C.

You can expect warm sea temperatures that last throughout the year with lows of 26°C and highs of 29°C. The best time to go to Punta Cana for snorkelling and scuba diving is July onwards for warmer waters and clear views of the surrounding coral reef.

If you’re feeling warm during your visit, head to the coast to enjoy the cooling trade winds that bring relief from the intense summer heat.
