Punta Cana Overview
Punta Cana has tropical weather: the temperatures are really nice throughout the year. The lowest temperature is around 19°C in the winter –from November to April-, and 34°C in the summer, August being the warmest month. Punta Cana is a really humid place, but the winds from the Atlantic tend to ease the sense of humidity. The rains appear around May and October, coinciding with the hurricane and strong winds time of the year. In Punta Cana, however, hurricanes are not common phenomenon, but the chances of encountering one are higher between June and November.
The Dominican Peso (RD$). In most of the resorts, touristic points and cities there are ATMs and there is no trouble when it comes to paying with a credit card. In most of the little restaurants and shops it is best to ask before buying anything if credit card is accepted. In most hotels you can also exchange money without any issue.
