The Dominican Republic lies in the middle of the Caribbean region and makes up the eastern two thirds of Hispaniola Island, which it shares with Haiti to the west. Punta Cana is about 100 miles to the east of the Republic’s capital Santo Domingo.
As you’d expect for a resort in the Caribbean, the consistently warm average sea temperature means that you can go swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving at any time of the year. The sea temperature is at its coldest during the dry season, when it averages at 26°C during February and March. The sea temperature is at its warmest during the wet season, when it averages at 28°C between June and September.

While on vacation in Punta Cana, most months of the year visitors should pack clothes for swimming and warm weather. For December and January some nights may require a light garment.
