What is Punta Cana like in December? Is that a good time to go for a beach vacation? What is the weather like and what is the experience like (are resorts dull or still lively, etc.)?
We like going during the first weeks in December since there are so many great deals during that time. As you get closer to the holidays the prices really increase. Weather is real good and found the resort less crowded than the peak season.
Foodman is correct, I was at the Ambar in early December 2017, great deals, resort not crowded at all and amazing weather all week.Edited: 08 August 2018, 21:36
Great time of year to go - not too busy at all I found. (I suppose it depends on the resort?)
The weather is still HOT! perhaps 2-3 degrees less than "peak" temperatures, but it's absolutely lovely. Before Xmas so prices are a little cheaper too :)
