What's the climate like in DR??

Is it very humid like it is in Mexico? We are going in May and have never been before. Been to Mayan Riviera in Mexico a couple of times so want to know if the climate is roughly the same? Thanks

Hi there...May is often a nice month to visit. Temps peak around 90 degrees and humidity is tolerable at 75%.

later in the summer, temps climb another 3 or 4 degrees and the humidity climbs to around 80% on avarage.

Cheers

I too have been the mayan riviera recently and PC. The climate and humidity are very similar. Interestingly, PC is a little further south than we were in the mayan riviera so it may be even a little bit warmer for you.

We have been to both and they are not the same.PC has humidity and the mayan is windy warm.If you take a picture on the beach in the mayan there will be 200 people in the background.In PC there will be only 50.Probably more european people in PC. We like them both?

Clouds up at 5PM ... Rain???? Which resort are you staying at????

Sorry....but anywhere south of the Majestic has not seen a daytime shower in 10 days. I have been outside literally every evening and no clouds....perhaps a small passing puffy cloud....but that is all.

Cheers

We were at both Mayan and PC in January. PC was much much warmer. The winds in the mayan were so cold at night that all us ladies had to go put pants and jackets or wraps on and we still froze. PC we were out til 2 in the morning and it was just as warm as when the sun first went down. When we were there in March last time, it was about 25 - 29 Celsius and a bit breezy with the odd shower, that due to the temps actually felt like a lukewarm shower. It's not like home in Canada where the rain comes and you freeze.
