Best time of year to visit DR?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

We are looking at getting married in the DR early December 2011. We were told by the travel agent that the best time of year to visit is between December and April, to avoid the rainy season, although it is hot there all year round.

 

I just wondered if any brides who got married in the DR went in December? If so, what was the weather like, did you experience any rain? And was it mainly cloudy or sunny?

 

Thanks :)

I was there a few years ago over the christmas holidays, and the weather was wonderful. It rained only one day and that was really heavy, but other than that it was blue skies, and hot sunny days. Great for the beach. I hope this helps. Good Luck and Have Fun.

December is a great time to visit here......as is any time in winter as it's a bit cooler at night and early mornings ! It's like a perfect summer's day. If it rains, it's usually at night - bringing a fresh sparkling-clean sunny morning - ahhh, bliss!

I was there in October and would avoid going there that time of year if at all possible since it was extremely humid and windy. I heard that it was hurricane season afterwards. December must be better!

Yeah I was told the best time to go is December-April as this misses out their hurricane and rainy season. I was just worried that as we are going early Dec that it might not be the best weather yet but if we wait until Jan-April I'll have to wait till 2012 as there is no way we can afford to go that early on in 2011 sad.gif

 

Thanks all x

My fiance and i were thinking about going in June...even though its the beginning of hurricane season..but we have a lot of teachers in our family so we thought that would be easier for alot of people. Does anyone know what the typical weather is like in June? Is this a really bad time to go?

Usually the hurricane season starts a little later in the summer, August, September, and October. I've heard that this a beautiful time to go as well...just hot! We've booked for July because I'm a teacher. The average temp is 32 degrees and humid. I would say go when you want to have your wedding everyone will be there for you and being in a tropical paradise, even with a day of rain is no biggie. :)
