Rarely does it rain during the day, the Weather in Punta Cana and Bavaro is one reason this is the most desirable place in the Caribbean for vacation. Punta Cana’s climate is dry, compared to the rest of the Dominican Republic, and palm trees flourish along the coast. This is what makes it an ideal place for a Caribbean vacation. You might have a shower or two during your stay, but the weather here is quite cooperable. With over twenty miles of white sandy beaches and palm trees, no other destination in the Caribbean can compare. Punta Cana weather is very predictable, that’s why it’s the most popular destination in the Caribbean.
Do not worry too much about the weather forecasts showing clouds and thunderstorms! The weather is very specific to the weather station, and if it rains somewhere within the range of that station, a rain icon will appear. You will sometimes see thunderstorms predicted or recorded for every day during two week period. It does NOT mean that it will rain every day. The weather is usually better at the coast anyway, which is where all the hotels and resorts are.

When I'm not traveling or hanging out of the beach, I'm a Consultant for Tour Operators in the Dominican Republic. I also dig Linux and FOSS, loath TV, enjoy cooking, and I'm an adrenaline seeking adventure junkie. I try not to take life too seriously if I can avoid it. Oh yeah, and I’m the guy that sort of keeps this site from falling apart.
