With stunning mountain scenery, colonial architecture, beaches galore and some incredible resorts, there’s every reason to love to the Dominican Republic. Whether it’s a first-time visit, or it’s an old-time favourite of yours, there’s always something new to discover.
There are hundreds of kilometres worth of coastline in the Dominican Republic – and each white-sandy beach offers something different to the next.
While some offer gorgeous rows of palms trees and the opportunity to relax, others have dramatic rocks and striking views. There are plenty of secluded bays and coves too – some of which were the temporary homes of migrating humpback whales which has contributed to today’s efforts in preserving and safeguarding the country’s natural heritage.
Beyond the beaches you’ll find cows and horses grazing along the roads, rivers winding their way through jungle and our favourite – gorgeous waterfalls in some of the most remote settings. What’s more, if you’re a keen hiker, the Dominican Republic’s the place for you – there are more peaks here than neighbouring islands, offering incredible views from above!
It’s well worth exploring the local towns while holidaying in the Dominican Republic to experience its rich history and heritage. Beautifully restored monasteries and cobblestone streets are mixed with crumbling gingerbread homes, giving you a sense of its rollercoaster past and scars from previous decades – but visit in carnival time, and you’ll find the local communities are all about celebration and positivity!
