Dominican Republic Holidays 2020

The Dominican Republic is arguably the most diverse of all the Caribbean islands. It has gorgeous mountains, sandy deserts and sun-drenched beaches to thrill you on your Caribbean adventure.

Dominican Republic holidays continue to be some of our most popular long-haul choices. Tourists looking to get out of the busy cities and into the relaxing countryside can do so in minutes. 

Driving along the highways, you will be into the scenic outskirts in no time, and on to secluded white sand beaches like the astonishing Punta Cana.

The Dominican Republic is great for:

  • All inclusive holidays - From the romantic Santo Domingo to the stunning wrap-around terrace houses in Puerto Plata, the Dominican Republic is a favoured spot for package holidays.
  • Family holidays - lots of resorts offer kid’s clubs, children’s pools and entertainment or are positioned close to the beach; ideal for a family looking to have a relaxed break with activities for all ages.
  • Cheap holidays - whether you’re looking for a relaxed beach break or an action-packed adventure, the Caribean island hub has it all. Don’t believe us? Check out some of the top things to do in the Dominican Republic.

There's an endless variety of things to do in the Dominican Republic. Once you’ve explored the old streets of Santo Domingo and taken in its rich culture, you should investigate the natural beauty of the country. From the compact luxury in Costa Dorada to the quaint beauty of Samana, or the beaches at Bavaro in Punta Cana, there's plenty for you to do and see on your 2020 Dominican Republic holiday.

Samana, on the north east coast, looks over Samana Bay, where hundreds of whales descend during mating season. Puerto Plata, located close to Costa Dorada, is one of the most popular resorts in the Dominican Republic. Its two most famous beaches, Playa Dorada and Bahia Maimon, have to be seen to be believed... they're really beautiful!

Discover Punta Cana

Discover Punta Cana

Punta Cana is home to two of the Dominican Republic's best resorts, Uvero Alto and Bavaro. Uvero Alto is a great place to stay if you're looking for a laid back family resort, while Bavaro's magical white sand beaches offer an intoxicating combination of sun, sand and sea.

If relaxing makes you tired, you might fancy some windsurfing, scuba-diving, sailing and parasailing, jet-skiing or deep-sea fishing! Or you could take a diving trip, where you’ll uncover a whole menagerie of marine life beneath the ocean. If you’re looking to expend some excess energy, both tennis and golf are available, as well as ziplining in the nearby forest, and dune buggies for a real thrill!

Hikers will find wonderful mountain views and rushing rivers on the island's interior, with lush jungles and beautiful waterfalls away from the road. Get your adrenaline fix as you go white water rafting, ride inflatable tubes along rapids, or go cascading in the island's waterfalls!
