When to visit.
Any day is a good time to visit Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. The weather is
similar year round. Expect highs in the upper 80ís during the day and lows at
night in the low 70ís. Temperatures vary by less than 10 degrees F year round, a
little cooler in the winter, warmer in the summer, rainiest in September and
October. High season is from November through March. Prices usually drop in
April. Our opinion is that February and March are the most pleasant months to
visit because the nights are a bit cooler.
Storms are frequent in September but they usually amount to no more than a
brief afternoon shower. Many people prefer September because they
practically have the beach to themselves. The beach is crowded on
weekends, especially on Sundays when many Dominicans have their day off and
spend the day at the beach with their families. Boca Chica is virtually
empty on weekdays.
Days in Boca Chica are quiet compared to other popular destinations such as the
Bahamas or Cancun. Boca Chica is a small town and the main strip is just a few
blocks long, yet the beach stretches for nearly a mile.
