Although you can enjoy optimal weather at any time of the year in Punta Cana regardless of the month, there are some months that are better than others for visiting this little slice of paradise. Travelling to Punta Cana in May is an option that many people choose. If this is a month you could possibly go on holiday in, then we’ll tell you all the pros of travelling during this month so that you can decide whether or not it’s the perfect time for you.

Weather in May in Punta Cana

Normally we choose the months of June, July, August and September for going on holiday. Specifically, these months coincide with the rainy season in the Punta Cana area. This doesn’t mean it will be raining the whole time, as the type of rain in this area is intense but short, and only lasts for a few minutes. Then everything quickly goes back to normal as if nothing had happened. 

While it’s true that this type of rain can occur in the month of May, it is also the first month that coincides with the beginning of the time of year when people in many countries start going on holiday. 

However, it is true that depending on the time of the month, it will be more or less likely to find some rain. The first ten days of the month are practically always sunny, while in mid-May you can find occasional rain during the day that becomes more frequent at night. At the end of May, this rain can become even more frequent. 

If you can take a few days off in May and you’re thinking of visiting Punta Cana, you should know that the temperatures are perfect, with highs of around 30 degrees Celsius and lows of 24 degrees Celsius. 

Doesn’t that sound like the temperature of paradise? 


Why travel to Punta Cana in May?

Travelling to a destination at one time of the year or another can often be very different. In Punta Cana, the winter months are considered peak season, since many people from northern countries travel to Punta Cana to escape the cold.

However, in many countries the months from June to September are very popular for going on holiday, which means that there are also many other visitors who decide to enjoy a few relaxing days in Punta Cana during those months. 

That’s why months like May offer the ideal balance between good weather and a time of year when Punta Cana is less crowded. 

What to pack when travelling to Punta Cana in May?

Although it’s always a good idea to be cautious and pack some “just in case” items in your suitcase, you have to keep in mind that travelling at this time of year means you have to pack clothes for all kinds of situations. 

Of course, you should never forget your sunscreen, because you are guaranteed to enjoy days of plentiful sunshine and you’ll want to protect your skin. You’ll also need swimwear and it doesn’t hurt to include a jacket for when it cools down at night and a pair of closed-toe shoes. 

In any case, if you’re staying at hotels like the Lopesan Costa Bávaro, you’ll find places like The Boulevard, with endless shops where you can find items that you may need but haven’t packed in your suitcase. 


In addition, The Boulevard has a wide range of entertainment options, which means that even if it rains, you would always have different types of activities at your disposal such as theatres, casinos, restaurants, spas…

What do you think about starting to organise your trip to Punta Cana in May 2022? Why wait any longer to enjoy a few unique days in paradise?
