Although the Dominican Republic may be well known for All Inclusive Caribbean holidays, the Dominican Republic offers far more for those looking to experience nature, wildlife, culture and beach on a tailor made Caribbean holiday.
The Dominican Republic’s capital Santo Domingo was the first European city founded on the American continent and the past still feels present in the vibrant, historic old town.
Nature lovers should head to Barahona for bird watching, mountain scenery, zip-lining and to get close to Caribbean nature. Humpback whales can be seen during two seasons and a 5 night live-aboard trip is a unique way to get close to the whales.
Away from the All Inclusive resorts of Punta Cana,the Samana Peninsula is a beautiful and tranquil beach destination where you can get in touch with the real Caribbean.
There is a small selection of great luxury and boutique hotels in the Dominican Republic ranging from old colonial era manors to modern boutique beach resorts.
