A sun-kissed playground with one of the most geographically diverse Caribbean settings, the Dominican Republic offers much to many with its own unique blend of striking scenery, intriguing colonial history and rich culture.
Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, this vast lush island is home to magnificent national parks, mountain ranges, rivers and sweeping beaches. Plus with such a wonderful natural backdrop there is certainly no shortage of activities and entertainment for couples and families alike. From relaxing on the sand all day to merengue dancing the night away, and endless fun in between, holidays here can be as varied and as individual as you like. In a single week you could trek up to 3000m, explore ancient sights, windsurf wild waves, head out on the open water to witness humpback whales and absorb a lively evening atmosphere while sipping dark rum. First discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, the island has since grown into a popular destination featuring luxurious resorts in areas such as Punta Cana and a strong cultural scene in Santo Domingo, also a Unesco World Heritage site. The colonial heart of these towns beat with friendly locals at fiestas and carnivals, where the buzz is almost palpable. Located less than four hours from New York and nine hours from London, the Dominican Republic should be a must for all travellers and it is little wonder that Columbus chose this as his Caribbean home.
