Dominican Republic Adventures

Best time to go

Despite its year-round hot summer temperatures, the Dominican Republic’s tropical climate and location makes it prone to hurricanes and torrential rain. Hurricane season runs from June to November, while the rainy season on the north coast runs from October to April and May to November on the south coast. The busiest time of year is between December and April when North Americans take their vacations to tropical climes. The European tourist stampede is generally June to September.

Travel in the Dominican Republic offers a chance to experience the Caribbean off the beaten track. It is home to some of the Caribbean’s best and least crowded beaches and the sounds of the merengue is never far away. If you are lucky enough to travel the Dominican Republic during a carnival, you’ll be in for a real party!

Top tourist attractions in Dominican Republic include:

* Cabritos Island center located in Lago Enriquillo and features crocodiles, flamingos, white crown pigeons and much more.

* The Dominican Republic Jazz Festival which is held at Cabarete every year during the first week of November. The festival brings jazz musicians and bands to perform on the beach.
