Seasons in Dominican Republic – When is the best time to have holidays.

Seasons in Dominican Republic should not play a role in choosing the time for holidays. It is always warm and comfortable to relax in Dominican Republic, there is not even an expressed rainy season, although it is generally assumed that there is more rain in the summertime. After living here for more than 5 years, I realized that rains in the Dominican Republic, like the locals, are not always predictable. A few rainy days in a row can happen both in winter and in summer. As is typical of the coconut republics, rains are tropical, heavy showers but short.

Other resorts such as Egypt, Thailand, Emirates, also advertise themselves as places where you can relax comfortably all year round. In fact, in Egypt in winter time, during the “Khamsin” wind season, the temperature drops to 14-16 degrees at night, and cold winds blow during the day, you can rest, of course, but not so comfortable. In Emirates, as in Egypt, there is a very hot summer, for those who do not tolerate the heat, it will be quite hard, summer in Thailand is a clearly expressed rainy season.
