What’s the weather like in Punta Cana in August?

Punta Cana is a beautiful resort on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, with a tropical climate bringing warm weather to the region all year round. Things can be unpredictable in August, although there’s only usually wet weather on a handful of days. As this is the low season in the Caribbean, it can be a good time of year to visit if you want to avoid the crowds, as long as you don’t mind the risk of rain.


In August, the average temperature’s a warm 28°C, reaching highs of 32°C in the peak of the day. After dark, temperatures drop slightly to a low of 25°C on average, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning in your hotel at night. Around 90mm of rain’s expected in Punta Cana this month, but with an average of five wet days, any showers are usually short and sharp. The Caribbean waters are 29°C at this time of year, perfect for swimming or snorkelling.
