When you think of a beach vacation, what comes to mind? If refreshing blue water, glistening sand, and an ice cold drink in your hand are the first things you think of, then the Dominican Republic is where you want to be. But let’s be honest; we’d be crazy to limit your beach getaway to just those few (amazing) things. Whether you prefer to sprawl out and spend the day relaxing, practice your golf game at a championship course, treat yourself to a pampering spa treatment, or enjoy an out-of-this world meal with your family, this Caribbean destination will offer everything needed for that memorable trip to paradise.
The beaches are incredible
The Dominican Republic is well-known for its amazing beaches, which is why it’s a destination that ranks high on our list of tropical getaways. Miles of palm studded white sand mixed with the sound of rolling waves help to set the stage for your ultimate beach bliss. Slip away to a few of our favorite spots – like Playa Blanca, Bavaro, and Macao Beach – and enjoy the beach your way.
Adventure is abundant in Punta Cana
There’s more to Punta Cana than the beaches, although they are pretty much the stuff dreams are made of. While you’re here though, you may want to see what Punta Cana is truly all about. From catamarans and marinariums to ziplining and horseback riding, you can really experience both land and sea. Go by yourself, with your friends, or even take the kids along. There’s something for everyone to enjoy here!
History and culture await in La Romana
Calling all culture buffs! A visit to La Romana is an absolute must if you love to explore and learn. Head over to the re-created Mediterranean Village of Altos de Chavon and enjoy an afternoon full of performances, shopping, dining, and more. Nearby, the Cuevas de la Maravillas, otherwise known as the “Caves of Wonder”, feature ancient Taino paintings from thousands of years ago.
The “Amber Coast” is as exciting as it is beautiful
There’s nothing like a getaway to Puerto Plata, where beautifully unspoiled beaches lead to shimmering amber sands, perfect for forgetting your troubles and getting lost in a good book. If you’re on the adventurous side, kite surfing and windsurfing are great ways to have some fun in the sun. Make your way to Playa Dorada, Confresi, or Playa Mariposa and enjoy watersports to your heart’s content.
The Dominican Republic appeals to every traveler, especially when it comes to fun and excitement. Spend your days whale watching, surfing, playing a game of golf, or simply take some time decompressing on the beach. The choice is yours! The only question is: Which Dominican gem will you be visiting first?
