Things to do in 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
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!
