Dominican Republic shares the Hispaniola Island with Haiti located in the middle of the Caribbean Sea; so temperatures and weather are comfortable all year round, it’s a perfect windsurfing holiday’s destination. Cabarete is located on the Northern coast of the Dominican Republic, and it’s one of the World top windsurfing destinations. A relaxed and informal atmosphere, beautiful palm fringed beaches, and some top class, consistent wind conditions, make this a fantastic place for windsurfing. Watersports lovers will find that holiday in the Dominican Republic is perfect for practice swimming, scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkelling and kitesurfing. Also mountain sports are popular there; you can practice biking, horseback riding, hiking and several day mountain treks.
Except in the central mountains, temperatures don’t vary much in the Dominican Republic, averaging a summery 81ºF (28ºC) to 87ºF (31ºC) in most places for much of the year. Tropical humidity can make the temperatures feel higher, though sea breezes help mitigate the effect. The rainy season is May to October, though in Samaná and on the north coast it can last until December. August and September constitute hurricane season. The main foreign tourist seasons are December to February and July to August and Semana Santa (the week before Easter). Expect higher prices and more crowded beaches at these times – Semana Santa is especially busy. February has great weather and you can enjoy Carnaval and the whales in Samaná. November is good, too – you will miss the whales but catch baseball season.
