Dominican Republic holidays are all about clear blue waters, palm-fringed beaches, luxury beachfront hotels and exciting watersports. Situated in the Caribbean region, the country is known to the outside world for its picturesque beach resorts and spectacular natural beauty.
Dominican Republic holidays are a popular long haul escape for families and couples, thanks to its exotic year-round climate, unbeatable coastline, lush rainforest interior and all-round beach resorts. The eastern resort of Punta Cana is a great place to stay on your Dominican Republic holidays, with lively seaside towns including Bavaro. Up north in Puerto Plata, discover traditional rum factories, colonial squares and tourist attractions including Mount Isabel del Torres. For history buffs, Santo Domingo is the home to Ciudad Colonial, the oldest European settlement in the New World.
Watersports take centre stage though, with kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, kitesurfing and white-water rafting available on the calm, clear waters. Holidays to Dominican Republic are perfect if you want a mixture of tropical beaches and traditional Caribbean vibes.
