About Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic is the second largest and most diverse Caribbean country, situated just two hours south of Miami, less than four hours from New York and eight hours from most European cities. Known for our warm and hospitable people, Dominican Republic is a destination like no other, featuring astounding nature, intriguing history and rich culture.

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the north and the Caribbean Sea on the south, our lush tropical island paradise boasts nearly 1,000 miles (1,609 km) of coastline, 250 miles (402 km) of the world’s top beaches, magnificent resorts and hotels, and a variety of sports, recreation and entertainment options. Here you can dance to the pulse pounding thrill of the merengue, renew in our luxurious and diverse accommodations, explore ancient relics of centuries past, delight in delicious Dominican gastronomy or enjoy ecotourism adventures in our magnificent national parks, mountain ranges, rivers, and beaches.

Things to do in Dominican Republic

  • Whale Watching, Península de Samaná – This spit of land in the north-east of the country is home to colourful towns such as Las Terrenas, and picturesque fishing villages such as Las Galeras, but it’s all eyes on the ocean during whale-watching season.
  • Salto Alto – The Dominican Republic has no shortage of beautiful waterfalls. The Salto Alto may not be the tallest or most dramatic, but it’s perhaps the most picturesque. And importantly, as the closest to the capital, it’s day-trippable from Santo Domingo.
  • Capri Beach House – Surrounded by high-rise, sprawling, gated all-inclusive resorts that dominate the Punta Cana coastline, is this charming little beach-side restaurant and guesthouse.
  • Hoyo Azul – This stunning lagoon almost glows, such is the vividness of its blue waters. The ‘Blue Hole’ natural sinkhole can be found just outside of Punta Cana at the base of a 75-meter cliff.
  • Isla Saona – Part of the East National Park, tropical Saona Island lies off the south-eastern tip of the country, and is surrounded by clear, shallow waters, perfect for a swim. Pleasure cruise or speedboat across to the palm fringed beaches, stopping at a shallow sandbank for a dip.
