anyone ever been to punta cana during the winter, specifically january? ive read varying accounts of the average temperature during that time (as low as 68, to as high as 85) and would like to hear from someone first hand....i just want to make sure that the days are hot enough to go swimming, walk around in only a bathing suit, and overall feel like summer....im not really concerned about the night, and it might even be nice if it is cooler

thanks

We went to Isla Catalina in January. It's off the coast of the DR, but not sure how far from Punta Cana. The weather was just like summer while we were there. We were on Costa for a Christmas cruise. It was in the mid 80s and the water was beautiful. Sorry, I haven't been to Punta Cana specifically.

thanks, penny, that helps....im sure the weather is similar, so its a good comparison....we are forced to do a land based vacation this year (heresy, i know!), and just wanted to make sure that the january weather wouldn't be disappointing.....actually, from the reading ive been doing, it might even be better - less rain, low humidty, and we won't have to deal with oppressive heat (though hopefully still warm/hot)

ill miss cruising, but im excited about trying an all inclusive

I hope y'all have a great time. I just can't do land based anymore. I'm sure it will be beautiful and hopefully, relaxing, too.
