Here we're right on the edge of the greenery next to the beach. The beaches in the D.R. were very pretty. The weather in the picture is pretty much how it was the majority of the time that we were there. Party sunny. It would rain at random times for a couple of hours then it would be back to partly sunny. I was told that summer is the rainy season, if you go in the winter the weather is either sunny or partly sunny for about 6 months.
