Weather

The weather here in Dominican Republic is tropical meaning that it is hot and hotter. Humid and humider…not a word but you get the idea.

There are many temperature variations depending on where you are located throughout this large Caribbean island. Coastal areas are hotter than in the mountainous areas. City areas are hotter than the countryside. Sitting water (in a bowl or bucket) can freeze at night in the mountains but it will melt fast as the sun rises.

Beat the heat on a Sunday afternoon.
