The Dominican Republic has two main seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. The rainy season runs from May to November, while the dry season runs from December to April.
The Dominican Republic is a tropical country, so the weather is warm and humid year-round. However, the temperatures do vary slightly between the two seasons. During the rainy season, the average temperature is about 27 degrees Celsius (81 degrees Fahrenheit). During the dry season, the average temperature is about 29 degrees Celsius (84 degrees Fahrenheit).
The rainy season is, unsurprisingly, the wetter of the two seasons. The country experiences an average of about 15 inches (38 centimeters) of rainfall during this time. This rainfall is usually spread out over a few heavy rainstorms each month.
The dry season is the peak tourist season in the Dominican Republic. This is because the weather is more stable and sunny during this time. However, the dry season is also the busiest time of year for locals, as they take advantage of the good weather to work on their farms and in their businesses.
