It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Dominican Republic

Peak Season: mid-December to mid-April

The strongest trade winds, driest conditions, coolest crowds, and most exciting events (like whale-watching and winter baseball) make this Dominican prime time. Consider less-trafficked areas like Samaná and Barahona.

Off Season: mid-June to mid-November

Despite the fact that this is official hurricane season, most properties remain open and offer significant discounts. It’s generally hotter (temperatures range from the high 80s to low 90s) and more humid. Prices are slashed 20-50%.

Sweet Spot: mid-April to mid-June; mid-November to mid-December

Prices are still slashed 20-50% and you’re comfortably outside the worst part of hurricane season, with resorts, restaurants, and attractions still bustling.
