If you’re looking for an exotic holiday in a far flung destination, then there is no better option than the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic. Offering beautiful weather, stunning landscapes and delightful food, the Dominican Republic provides visitors with holiday memories that will last a lifetime. Seamlessly blending together all the relaxation you’d expect of a Caribbean island with the typically lively music, a rum punch, some sun screen and a bikini is all you’ll really need to enjoy your holiday.
Of course one of the first things you’ll want to do once you arrive in the Dominican Republic is explore the beautiful beaches and there are plenty of them, meaning you’ll never have to share your patch of sand from other holidaymakers and can instead focus on toping up your tan or taking cooling dips in the beautifully blue water.
For a little sightseeing, a trip to Santo Domingo is well worth a visit, full of history and culture, you can walk the same streets as the pirates of old or explore the local boutiques which will provide plenty of gift opportunities for those you left back at home. The attractions of Santo Domingo don’t end when the sun goes down either as there are a fine selection of nightclubs playing the best salsa and merengue music around, perfect for dancing the night away.
For a real once in a lifetime experience the Dominican Republic offers something you won’t find anywhere else. Get yourself booked onto a boat and enjoy the sight of humpback whales, which settle off the coast of the Dominican Republic to mate and give birth.
More traditional holiday activities are available in the form of buggy rides along the impressive sand dunes, scuba diving, boat trips around the coast and golf.
Punta Cana is the largest region in the Dominican Republic, chock full of all inclusive hotels, offering a wealth of dining opportunities, a selection of shops to pick up your holiday trinkets and of course the beautiful white sand beaches you expect to find in the Caribbean. For those who want to get out and about in the fresh air then there are some fine golf courses dotted around this resort, a perfect way to make new friends while improving your handicap.
The resort of Playa Dorada also proves popular for tourists and it’s not difficult to see why as there are beautiful beaches where snorkelling is advised, a lazy swim taking in the marine life which really is a sight to behold. Shops, bars and restaurants are also available.
