What to See

All inclusive South Dominican Republic holidays are home are less visited than other parts of the island but are actually home to softer sand beaches and unspoilt scenery than in the north. The most popular places to take all inclusive Dominican Republic holidays are Santa Domingo, La Romana, Bayahibe, Bavaro and Boca Chica.

Dominican Republic holidays are full of gorgeous palm fringed ribbons of seaside sand. The three main beaches to choose from are in Bayahibe, Bavaro and Boca Chica. Bayahibe is probably the best beach to take the kids to for its silky soft texture in between your toes and rich green plant life sprouting further back off the shore. South Dominican Republic is where you can find some of the Caribbean’s finest beaches. The main beach is a long smooth stretch of sandy bliss but the only downside to here is that you will not find much else in the main town. Thankfully, hotels here provide adequate facilities and superb evening entertainment to keep you occupied. The beach resort of Bocha Chica is another beach paradise to be found along the southern region’s Caribbean coast. The town is nocturnal by nature, awakening at night to greet eager part goers who want to have some fun. The white sand beach is sheltered by most high winds and storm clouds by two nearby islands. You can visit the islands and coral reefs on regular excursions that run all summer.

Two other more built up locations on holidays at South Dominican Republic are La Romana and Santa Domingo. Santa Domingo is the Dominican Republic’s former capital and can still be called its cultural capital for its growing Plaza of Culture housing 4 museums. La Romana is the port of call for most Caribbean cruise ships and flights to Dominican Republic.

All inclusive East Dominican Republic holidays can be taken in Semana Town, Las Terenas, Cayo Levantado, Bavaro and Punta Cana. The Dominican Republic is a Caribbean Island near Cuba with a distinct Afro-Latino culture. Rather like Cuba, all inclusive East Dominican Republic holidays are full of chilled out beaches and low-key nightlife.

Semana is home to many great resort and activities on East Dominican holidays including Los Haitises National park, Cayo Levantado and El Limon Waterfalls. Cayo Levantado is a pint-sized little Carribbean island which is 60 minutes away from the nearest airport and only a 10 minute ferry ride from Semana Town, full of lots more amenities and things to do. Cayo Levantado actually has plenty of activities to offer and is a growing destination in which to spend a break in the Dominican Republic. There are plenty of water sports to try out there with the island’s own diving school and beachfront resorts offering spa treatments and all types of evening entertainment. Los Haitises National Park is where you will find remnants of the Dominican Republic’s ancient past. Pictures drawn by the Taino Indians can be seen in Los Haitises’ limestone caves and are a unique sight to behold in contrast to the brash shopping streets and restaurant alleys when you return home to your resort.

Night-life:

Punto Cana is a spectacular resort designed to reduce stress-levels and lift your worries on all inclusive holidays in Dominican Republic. The aim of the game is to lay on the beach and soak up the sun, something that appeals to most travellers that vacate to the Caribbean. The prime destinations to do this on in the Punto Cana area on all inclusive East Dominican Republic holidays are Isla Saona and Santo Domingo. A recommended day trip is to the Animal Adventure Park where you can make new friends with the local dolphins.

All inclusive holidays in the North of Dominican Republic are in a sunshine Caribbean island just south of Turkey. There are countless great holiday destinations here along the Atlantic coast including Monte Cristi, Puerto Plata, Santiago, La Vega and San Francisco De Macoris. On all inclusive Dominican Republic holidays you can behold the highest mountains in the Caribbean and catch some serious rays on its white sandy beaches.

Bahia Maimon is one of these North Dominican Republic holiday destinations where you can laze about on the pristine beach or explore the winding streets and alleyways in the main town. Most hotels are right on the beach front on the Bay of Maimon. There is a water sports hut also on the beach where you can rent out jet skis, wet suits and surfboards on your North Dominican Republic holiday.

Puerto Plata has a beautiful fine sand beach where you can rent a sun lounger or parasol and relax beneath the hot sun. All inclusive North Dominican Republic holidays are also a top choice for shopping with the nearby shopping town of Susua only ten to fifteen minutes away. Puerto Plata also has some great night spots where you can let your hair down by night and do some serious water sports by day. Particularly popular water sports on all inclusive North Dominican Republic holidays include windsurfing and kite surfing because of the stronger winds there further out to sea. Rumour has it that Christopher Columbus once described Puerto Plata as the “Port of Silver” and when you walk along the towns’ pristine white beaches and its glistening waters you will understand why.
