May: One of the Best Months to Visit Punta Cana

Punta Cana is known for its excellent tropical weather almost all year, with average highs around 80 degrees Fahrenheit.  Over 80% of the year is rain free.  During May, you might see the island less crowded and you can find good prices on accommodations compared to the winter season (December – February). Let’s review some of the reason why you should consider May a good time to visit our island.



The temperatures in Cap Cana change very little from season to season. During May, humidity and temperatures combine to make this month feel warm. The weather is enjoyable with sunny skies most of the time and the average temperature is around 80°F (27°C). Through May, precipitation and humidity hit a high peak with an average of 75.2% for humidity and a daily chance of rain of 21%.



If you want to visit Cap Cana and avoid the crowds, May is the month for you. You will see more tourists during the peak seasons, such as winter and spring break months. In May, most of the crowds have left so you will probably enjoy a more laid-back experience.



You can find reasonable prices for lodging in May, as the island is less crowded and precipitation and humidity rises comparing to the earliest spring months.
