Most tourists who have visited the Riu Merengue Inclusive Resort give it an excellent review. In fact, this all inclusive resort is one of the top vacation spots for couples, families, and groups of friends visiting the Dominican Republic city of Puerto Plata.
The Riu Merengue is located on the beach and is surrounded by other highly-visited inclusive resorts such as the Riu Bachata.
The greatest thing about visiting any vacation spot in the Dominican Republic is that the weather is pretty warm all year round.
You can visit at anytime of the year.
Like most places in the Caribbean in general and in the Dominican Republic in particular, the weather in Puerto Plata is hot all year round. Consequently, visitors frequent the area at anytime during the year, but especially during the winter.
Note, however, that the summer days are quite humid and so hot that you may need to wear sandals on the beach.
During the hottest months of July and August, the highest temperatures remain in the 90's. And during the "coldest" months of January through March, the highest temperatures remain above 80 degrees. The temperature at nights sometimes reach into the 60's during "winter".
Some months during the Atlantic Hurricane Season, June to November, tend to be quite rainy so you must plan on getting some rain.
However, you can expect an overall great vacation weather when you visit the Riu Merengue Inclusive Resort.
