Punta Cana weather in October

 
During the month of October the temperature in the area starts to decrease. The temperature range from 31ºC (88ºF) in the middle of the day to 23ºC (73ºF) in the night time. While some tropical storms might hit the area is way less frequent than in September. Donâ€t forget that the very high humidity can make the temperature feel higher than it is. Similar to September the month of October is quite rainy with an average rainfall of 6.5 inches of rain. The UV index for this month lowers a bit (10) but is still quite elevated. The temperature of the surface of the sea is 28ºC (84ºF).

There's basically 2 seasons November - April (22 to 28 degrees, and not much rain) and then May - October (23 to 32 degrees and more rain).  My husband works at the Plaza near one of the resorts and he's had 3 days of rain since July 1st.  I was there for 3 weeks last October, and it was always the same - Sunny, partly cloudy, chance of showers (which is usually a 15 minute shower or down pour).  We had these 15 minute showers frequently, and I think only once did it pour all day. 

 

There are times (usually May - Oct) where it rains all week.  No point stressing about it.  Nothing you can do about it either.  It's still warm out so I say jump in the pool anyway!  

 

Enjoy your time!

Thanks Lyndsay! 

 

Thanks Khomac!  The fact that you have first hand experience of weather there in October helps!  I am going to go with October and not worry! 

 

Thanks again for everyone's help!

Down pours can happen during any time of the year. 

 

After doing a trash the dress session (submerging myself completely in the ocean and pool in my dress), getting caught in a down pour is actually quite fun now.  If I got married again and it started to rain, I would seriously dance in the rain (especially in Punta Cana where the weather is so warm and the cool showers are welcomed!)

 

How cool would it be to sit in your bathing suits under a Palapa, holding hands with your hubby, and listening to the rain?

 

I welcome the rain any time now!

Thanks for all the help in this thread. My date is October 10th and I sure hope it doesnt rain during my 10Am wedding! Any other time, I welcome the rain, just not for those 20 minutes! smile29.gif

I'm glad this thread was helpful to you as well!  Are you getting married at a resort?  If so - do you mind sharing the name?  I'm doing it at Paradisus Punta Cana!   Congratulations on your upcoming marriage :-)

I've been to Punta Cana in October/November three times. Although it can be a bit humid (hence the tropics) Its beautiful weather. If it rains, its 15 mins and at night. Its a great place.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
