Dominican Republic

Holidays to Dominican Republic

Those going on holidays to the Dominican Republic will have plenty of things to see and do during their stay. The stunning, exotic beaches are one of the key attractions and appeal to many visitors from overseas – and understandably so. The beaches of the Punta Cana region of the island are particularly ideal for beach lovers with their satin white sands, coconut palm trees and warm ocean waters.

Those taking their holidays to the Dominican Republic who are after an exciting family holiday, or something a little more inclined toward sporting activities, would probably be well advised to visit Puerto Plata on the north coast of the island. Puerto Plata has a lively atmosphere which is ideal for family holidays, while sport lovers will be pleased to note that the resort is actually built around a golf course – as well as being in very close proximity to yet another of the Dominican Republic’s breathtakingly beautiful beaches. Other sports on offer in this area include several water based activities such as diving and snorkelling, while there is also a wide array of quality restaurants offering good food at affordable prices, as well as a line up of exciting and mostly family friendly nightlife activities.

For those after a quiet place to get away from it all and perhaps soak up a little history while taking their holidays in the Dominican Republic, La Romana is the ideal choice. This area of the island has the beautiful beach, warm water and palm trees most tourists on Dominican Republic holidays would want and expect, but being a little fishing village which is nicely hidden away on the south coast, it comes with far less of a tourist vibe than most other areas on the island. La Romana is surrounded by quality modern hotels offering all the comforts one would hope for and expect, yet the town itself retains a timeless, quaint feel with fishermen’s huts, beach bars and rum and cigar shops being complemented by cobbled streets and street markets. The area is ideal for a relaxed holiday, yet one does not need to travel too far if the sudden desire for excitement rears its head, with a packed and noisy marina and plenty of golf courses nearby.

Those on Dominican Republic holidays looking for a spot of magic and romance should head off to the Samana Peninsula, a relaxed area where dolphins and whales can regularly be observed off of the coast. Cayo Levantado is an ideal romantic spot for couples, while Las Terrenas is a little bit livelier in nature, with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.

Tourists might also want to check their calendar to see if their holiday coincides with any of the islands’ annual festivals, which include such events as the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival and the Dominican Republic International Film Festival.
