Explore the beauty of Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic boasts the most diverse landscapes in the Caribbean. This is a country that is undoubtedly well equipped for tourists looking for a lavish and relaxing holiday with sprawling resorts and boutique hotels situated close to the finest beaches. Enjoy the country’s Hispanic-influenced carnival culture and explore the verdant interior if you’re feeling adventurous.

The Dominican Republic is a unique Caribbean destination combining the traditional attributes of beautiful beaches and year-round sunshine with a less traditional mountain backdrop.

It’s located in between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, west of Puerto Rico, east of Cuba and south of Turks and Caicos. You’ll find beaches of sugary white sand and lovely clear water here – it’s a picture perfect representation of Caribbean beauty and the Punta Cana region is especially famous for its sandy shores.

But the Dominican Republic doesn’t limit you to the sunbathe-swim-sleep-repeat routine (unless you want it to). If you want to get active you can enjoy scenic hiking trails into the verdant mountains or explore the patchwork of little Latino-influenced towns.

The people of the Dominican Republic descend from a mixture of European and African heritage. Of course Hispanic culture dominates the island, but there is also influence from French, Italian and African traditions. It’s also a deeply religious nation with the majority of the citizens being practising Roman Catholics.

Why visit Dominican Republic?

  • The beaches are fantastic especially around Bavaro and Punta Cana
  • Virtually year-round sunshine means that the Dominican Republic is fantastic to visit any time that you fancy a holiday
  • There’s a lively Hispanic culture that you don’t find in many areas of the Caribbean – it makes a difference from the laid-back attitude of much of the region
  • The range of incredible all-inclusive resorts ensures you’ll have the holiday experience that you want
  • Santo Domingo is a great choice as a daytrip – you’ll see a thriving Caribbean city with a friendly atmosphere and plenty of fascinating historical sites
