The climate of Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic)
Puerto Plata is located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. This is the third largest city in the Dominican Republic. The city was founded in the 15th century by Columbusí brother. Much of the historic charm has been preserved. Many old warehouses and Victorian wooden houses with a porch can still be found here. Tourist high-rise buildings are non-existing here as yet. This gives Puerto Plata a pleasant and authentic charisma. Several resorts can be found in the vicinity. Enough activities for the sports enthusiast can be found here as well. Diving, snorkeling and surfing are among the possible activities.
Puerto Plata has a tropical climate without distinct seasons. However, there is a dry period and a wet period. Temperatures are steady all year round. The sea wind is responsible for a tempering influence during the summer. During the rainy season hurricanes and heavy rainfall are not uncommon. It is best to avoid this place during the rainy season. The best time to visit Puerto Plata is during the winter months. During the summer months humidity figures may rise to unpleasantly high values.
