Current water temperature for Dominican Republic is: 81°F

As a part of the tropics there is little variation in average temperatures on each of the islands over the course of the year. The water surface temperature ranges from the high 70s F in the winter to the mid-80s in the summer. The main difference in climate between the islands is in terms of the average rainfall.

This ranges from lush, densely forested Dominica, where average rainfall can be as high as 300 inches per year, to the desert-like Aruba.

Hurricane season is from June to November, but is statistically unlikely to disrupt your trip. If you want to be absolutely sure to avoid a hurricane then it’s best to book a holiday outside of the “hurricane belt” to somewhere like Aruba, Grenada or Trinidad and Tobago.

Attractions in the Caribbean Sea

The different islands each have different attractions for visitors. If you want to spend your time on the beach then Anguilla or the Dominican Republic are excellent choices. For families there are great all-inclusive resorts on Barbados and St. Lucia.


If you’re into watersports, the Cayman Islands probably offers the best diving in the Caribbean. Finally, if you want to sample some culture, Cuba is always attractive with it’s vibrant tradition of music and dance.
