Perfect beach weather Punta Cana has a warm but not scorching tropical climate which allows even the very young and old to safely enjoy many outdoor activities. To get the best of this climate, it's advised to come to Punta Cana during the cooler, dry winter months (December to April). Rain during this time is light, and the mornings and evenings cool enough for even strenuous exercise - a boon to the athletes among us. And of course to join one of the many excursions in Punta Cana.
It is worth noting, however, that the warmer months also signify hurricane season. Frequently this carries no real risk, as it merely rains a great deal in a short period of time, but it's still best to be aware. For more information on Punta Cana's weather, see our 'Weather' section.
