Nature enthusiasts: From jungle adventures to coral reef trips, Dominican Republic holidays are perfect for exploring the great outdoors. Saona Island is a must-visit for its marine life with starfish and spotted moray eel among the creatures swimming in its waters. But the best way to discover the island scenery is through adrenaline-fuelled activities, which include canyoning, ziplining and paragliding.
Beach lovers: The beaches on the eastern coast are among the finest in the Caribbean, with picture-perfect emerald waters and white sands fringed by palm trees. Bávaro Beach is perhaps the most famous thanks to its wide shoreline and backdrop of hotels. And you’ll feel like you're miles away from civilisation when you visit Cayo Levantado (Bacardi Island), a small floating paradise in Samana.
Bar hoppers: You won’t be short of evening entertainment when you come to the Dominican Republic. Santo Domingo holidays are made up of live performances with people dancing in the streets until the early hours. Or, head for the nightlife in Punta Cana and you’ve got some of the island’s best nightclubs and concert venues on your doorstep.
