Weather in April???

Can anyone tell me what the weather is usually like mid-Apirl in Punta Cana? We are staying at the Melia Caribe Tropical from April 13th to 20th. I heard the rainy-humid season starts in May!

There is always chance of rain but average temp the time of year is 28 degrees celcius in day. It does get hotter and more humid starting May.

Here is some information:

Punta Cana weather in April

For the month of April you can expect the temperature to be quite warm ranging from 28ºC (83ºF) in the middle of the day to 22ºC (72ºF) during the latest hours of the night. Remember since humidity picks up when there is rainy season you can expect to feel the temperature even higher than what the thermometer indicates. You can expect the UV index to be quite high (11) for the next couple of months so using sun block in this vacation spot is pretty much essential. The rainfall in the area starts picking up in this month with an average rainfall of 3.0 inches. While there is no real threat of tropical storms in this month the beginning of raining season is what you will most likely encounter. The temperature in the surface of the sea will be 26ºC (80ºF).

We were in PC last april for a week and it rained almost every day, in the morning til 10, and also in the afternoon, and at night of course... When it was not raining, it was very cloudy temperature. We only had 2 days without showers, so I guess, we were not lucky... We booked this year again, on the same dates (april 20-27) and are telling ourselves that it can't be worse than last year!!!

Good luck!!

We were in Punta Cana in April two years ago and it rained for about an hour one morning.

Don't go by the weather network reports because they called for rain EVERY day we were there.

We are going from Apr. 27 to May 4th. Is it normal for it to rain frequently but for short periods and then clear up?

I guess you really never can tell what it will be like ;) I'm sure it will be fun, rain or shine! I'm still hoping for lots of shine though...

Yes i think we may go end of April/May for two weeks back to the Melia. it was fabulous. Yes, weather is always unpredictable. I was there in march last year for one week and we had a couple days of of rain. However, i have travelled in January before with terrible weather. For the most part, we luck out no matter when we go.Good luck.
