I’ve been to the Dom Rep in May and July and Mexico twice in May. We have always had much much less rain in the Dom Rep. We have had about 3 complete rain out days each trip to Mexico and that was in May when rainy season hadn’t quite kicked in. It is of course always th luck of the draw but we had to go away in July again this year and although we prefer Mexico, we opted for the Dom Rep for the chance of better weather. Mexico is also typically affected by tropical storms and hurricaines more than the Dom Rep.Edited: June 09, 2018, 6:34 pm
July is usually very hot,humid and prone to short sharp showers or thunderstorms . Bigger Storms or even a tropical depression can also form at this time of year so you need to be aware of this. However,the official rainfall for July is 130mm or just over 5” of rain with an average temp of around 28 degrees.
Hope this helps.
We went in July last year and not a drop of rain. Hot though.
We had 4 thunderstorms and one complete wash out when we went in July.
Very difficult to say....it will rain, in short bursts or could stay all day.
Just book and enjoy... hopefully it will be fabulous 👌🏽
We were there in July 2017 and did not have one day of rain. We are going again in July this year.
That being said, we were stuck in Hurricane Emily while visiting the Mayan Riviera in July 2005!
If you research " my FOX Hurricane Satellite" sight you will find history of severe tropical storms. In the early season which goes from May to June , the possibility of one per month going trough Belize and Mayan . July and Aug possibly one / month further East DR and Cuba , Sept and Aug further East through DR , Cuba Bahamas to Carolinas . You see aprox 3% probability of Hurricane and daily evening rain because of humidity.
You can research all you want nobody can predict the weather.
Thanks for all the replies. Totally looking forward to visiting Mexico. Beach, fish, golf, cool archeological sites... What more could we want!
Am thinking the weather will be similar to what we have experienced in DR. And go with that in mind.
Special shout out to Rod who has literally answered all of my questions no matter how silly.
Weather is very unpredictable these days
What one person's experience was last year or the past few may not mean anything
On the average, July is drier than June and August
Weather / hurricane forecast sites over in top questions
Pay attention to the Hurricane weather sites , not the regular weather reporting sites
