As this is the most mountainous island in the Caribbean, higher areas are much cooler and wetter than lowland areas. The north coast is wetter than the south, which is wetter than most other Caribbean islands during the rainy season from May-Oct, when hurricanes may also occur. Temperatures can dip below 0°C during winter months (Dec-Apr) in mountain areas. There are two rainy seasons, the heaviest from May-Aug and the lightest from Nov-Dec. The southwest is the country's driest region.

Hotel Classification in Dominican Republic: There is no official hotel classification system in the Dominican Republic, however, some hotels are members of the Tourism Promotion Council (CPT) which grades its members purely according to rack rates charged, using 3 grades for all-inclusive properties and 4 grades for normal hotels. Hotel classification is assigned depending on infrastructure, quality and consumer rights. The categories will resemble a grading by stars and the price of lodging accordingly to the classification. Where the CPT category is available we have converted it to our normal "pound sign" categories using £££ (moderately priced) up to £££££ (the most expensive) for all-inclusive and ££ (inexpensive) up to £££££ (deluxe) for normal hotels. In addition, the American Automobile Association (AAA) operates a voluntary scheme similar to that used by our own AA/RAC. This awards diamonds on a scale from 1 up to 5. AAA grades are very strict and are usually equivalent to the next highest category (so a 3-diamond hotel is probably equivalent to a normal 4 star). Where properties subscribe to AAA their diamond ratings are given here. For properties which are not members of CPT or graded by the AAA, we have arbitrarily awarded categories of £ up to £££££ based on rack rates, facilities and perceived quality. These equate approximately to the commonly used 1- to 5-star system but serve only to compare relative standards within any given area.
