Best travel time
We recommend travelling during the European winter months, not only do you escape the cold weather at home, but you replace the cold with great waves, warm weather and sunshine in the Dominican Republic which is considered a year-round surf destination. Air & Water Temperature
While everyone in Europe is shivering during the winter holidays, the locals and tourists in the Dominican Republic are enjoying warm weather, sunshine, and consistent surf. The average air temperature is 28 Degrees Celsius, which is accompanied with very inviting water temperatures of around 27 Degrees. The northern part of the Dominican Republic is more tropical, humid and wet than the south, especially during the monsoon season. This rainy season occurs in-between November and January and definitely doesn’t mean that it’s constantly raining, usually the afternoon downpours are short and heavy, and end just as quickly as they started. In the south this rainy season occurs more from May till November, and even during this time temperatures during the day hover around 32 degrees and don’t drop much below 23 degrees at night. Around the Cordillera Central, which sits roughly 1200 metres above sea level, the average temperature is 18 degrees and sometimes in winter it can drop below freezing. Wetsuit
You can leave that extra luggage at home!! Bikinis and Boardshorts are all you will need for surfing, the beach, or chilling in the tropical garden.

The Dominican Republic

Our International Surf Camp in the Dominican Republic offers white sand beaches that are dotted with coconut trees, year round tropical weather, and ideal surf conditions. The breath-taking national parks make up a third of the country and include every type of landscape from rainforest to mountains and include various nature reserves. Whether you’re a surfer, eco-tourist, active or beach vacationer, the Dominican Republic is a paradise for every visitor. The republic is part of the Caribbean and makes up the larger half of the island of Hispaniola, the other portion being Haiti. The language is Spanish and the currency is Dominican Pesos (DOP). European winter months are the best travel times and are definitely worth the trip.

Alongside the dramatic landscape and the picture perfect beaches, the Dominican Republic is also known for the warm hearted and friendly locals, a very interesting history, and of course, rum, coffee and cigars. Christopher Columbus discovered the Dominican Republic in 1492 and it has since been a colony of Spain. It was, up until the middle of the 19th century, a part of Haiti before becoming and independent state. Museums in the Dominican Republic are well worth a visit. An important part of the culture is based around music and dancing, especially the rhythm of the Merengue and Bachata as well as Salsa and Son which you will hear all over the country. For the younger generation Regaetton is also popular Regardless of where in the country you travel there will be incredible landscapes surrounding you. Samaná Peninsula on the north coast has beautiful Caribbean beaches with crystal clear, turquoise water, and fine, white sand dotted with coconut trees exactly how you picture them. As you move inland the rainforest begins and a little bit further you come across the largest waterfall in the Dominican Republic, the Salto del Limón. Near La Romana in the south is a small art village called Altos de Chavon where you will be greeted by Mediterranean flair, romantic architecture and authentic local restaurants and shops. Another attraction is the Amphitheatre which seats 5000 and has a spectacular view of the Rio Chavón.
The capital city of Santo Domingo also has a spectacular Old city within it which is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site partly due to it housing the oldest Cathedral of the Americas. It doesn’t matter whether you are surfing, relaxing or exploring nature or the history of the Dominican Republic, it can provide everybody with what their idea of a dream holiday is!
