1. Re: hurricanes in punta cana

we visit every sept or oct. Last year was the first time we have had an issue. Hurricane Sandy. It was not even close to punta cana .. our only issue was two days of rainy weather, but we still enjoyed our vacation and came home with killer tans. It was not enough to stop us from booking for two weeks again this October.

You cant predict the weather this far out. If you get bad weather, for a day or two, there is still lots to do.

If we're talking direct hits then the last one was in 2006 with Jeanne.

Dean & Olga in 2007 were Tropical Storms by the time they reached landfall that affected the weather in the D.R.

I've been there after these and most times the sun comes out as fast as the storms hits.
