Best time of year to go to DR?

We were thinking of going mid January 2009, but from looking on the net at weather reports it seems as though there is a lot of rain and around 25 degrees.

When is the best time of year to visit? We like it to be fairly hot and sunny as much as possible. Weather reports on the net seem a bit vague and vary massively, so it's not easy to tell!

Thanks ;O)

It always says rain but there is very little of it when your sleeping it may rain. Hurricane season is from May to November 30. Best time of year to go is from mid December to end of march almost perfect weather then.

Think about it. When you are at work, in the snow, in the rain, being hasseled, under stress, up tight then ANY time is a good time to visit the DR.

Actually the rainy season (usually) is November to Jan/Feb. That just means more likely to have showers and occasional rainy days. There is still more sun then rain. The dryest season is April to August, but again still the chance of an afternoon shower. The beaches are less croweded in Aug-October. AND there has not been a hurricane on the north coast is many years.

I am about to update the thread WEATHER under the Puerto Plata forum. I do it every day or so.

It now is partly cloudy after a cloudy, drizzle morning with more sun showing up. Still may salvage a few hours on the beach today.
