Choose Dominican Republic holidays and escape from it all on a Caribbean island with a distinct Latin flavour. The Dominican coast offers postcard-perfect sceneries, from white sand beaches to jutting mountains and thick rainforests further inland.
Influenced by its closest island neighbours, Cuba and Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic is a feast of colour. Marvel at the merging of tropical blues where the sky touches the water as well as its colourful rainbow of traditional painted houses and huts.The sunshine makes everything look brighter here and with year-round temperatures at or above 30 degrees, you’re guaranteed long, hot days to spend sunbathing in Puerto Plata or Punta Cana.
While the year-round sunshine is one of the Dominican’s biggest draws, the lush rainforest jungle can make a refreshing change. Take a hike through the mysterious Los Haitises National Park in Samana, where dark-blue lagoons are flanked by shaded rock faces and dense forest. Or, why not take a dip in the world-famous Salto del Limon waterfall, where you can bathe in the emerald rock pool underneath a 45m rushing cascade!
When it comes to package holidays to the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is a perfect choice. The white-sand resort of Bavaro has a long sweep of luxurious hotel complexes, great golfing opportunities and an exciting choice of shopping plazas.
Puerto Plata is a little busier and offers the chance to experience a traditional Dominican town. Visit the rum factory, wander the old quarter with its colourful painted wooden buildings, and ride the town cable car all the way to the top of Mount Isabel del Torres. Full of life and with a paradisiac turquoise-green sea, Puerto Plata holidays guarantee a vibrant Caribbean beach break.
If you want to feel that you’ve really got away from it all then take a look at Cofresi. The beach here is coarse sand, but the resort offers a quiet, secluded feel thanks to its hillside location.
