Sample text

The DR has nearly 1,000 miles of coastline, featuring some 300 miles of white- or golden-sand beaches. The country also has arid deserts, lush rainforests, thick dry forests, and five major mountain ranges separated by a series of fertile valleys and lowlands. There are also several smaller mountain ranges. The country’s dramatic elevation changes have resulted in at least 20 different climatic zones, with much wider variations in temperature and rainfall than in most other parts of the Caribbean (for more detail, see the Climate section).

Expect year-round averages of 73°F (23°C) in the early mornings that rise to 90°F (32°C) at noon, then fall to 68°F (20°C) in the evenings. Humidity can be very high, though frequent trade winds provide some relief from the heat. n Altitude Variations Where there is significant variation in temperature, it tends to be more by altitude than by season. Beachgoers on the coast can expect fairly consistent temperatures of around 84°F (29°C) during the day and 68°F (20°C) at night, usually with extended periods of sunshine (and warm Caribbean waters).

As a whole, the country averages about 55 to 59 inches (140 to 150 centimeters) of rain per year, but this ranges from a low of about 14 inches (35 centimeters) in the desert-like Valle de Neyba of the southwest to around 100 inches (254 centimeters) or more in Samaná on the northeast coast and in the Cordillera Septentrional and Cordillera Oriental mountain ranges. In general, the north and east of the country gets more rain than the south and west, with the far west being the driest of all. The mountains, in turn, tend to be much wetter than the lowlands.
