When is the best time to go?
The weather in the Dominican Republic is hot and sunny all-year round, although the busiest months are between December and April. During the high season the weather is at its best and all attractions are open for business, but the destination's popularity means accommodation is pricier and the beaches are often crowded. If you want a more relaxing holiday, consider the low season. Although there is a slightly higher chance of rain, the weather is still good and you can often pick up some great bargains.
