Holidays in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is the eastern, Spanish speaking portion of Hispaniola. From the water, the landscape is classic Caribbean paradise; clear waters, white sand, palm trees. The Punta Cana region near the airport and all inclusive resorts is where most visitors base themselves – dubbed the unimaginative but apt nickname, ‘coast of coconuts’. Check out Travelbag’s hotel portfolio to help you book your 2018 cheap holiday to Dominican Republic today. It’s a hot spot for water sports, windsurfing and kite surfing not least among them. Back from the shoreline, away from five star luxury resorts, you can kayak under the eaves of mangrove swamps and hike through pockets of jungle. Discover 2,000 year old petroglyphs left by the Taíno civilisation, that preceded the arrival of colonial powers in the Pomier Caves and the sliding side steps of merengue dance routines that tell the history of African slaves forced to work sugar cane fields.

Essential Information

Dominican Republic Resorts & Beaches

The Dominican Republic coastline varies from the super-soft sands in the south and east to the secluded coves and steep cliff faces around the northern Hispaniola perimeter. Popular beaches include Playa Boca Chica (20 miles from the capital) and the remote Playa Rincon for some peace, quiet or even lengthy romantic walk for Dominican Republic honeymoon packages. Most base themselves in Punta Cana, the beaches are lapped by the calm Caribbean Sea and trimmed by ranks of palm trees. Popular Dominican Republic resorts include Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa (the bars and entertainment services make it good for groups) or the Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa, a peaceful retreat near Parc Nacional Del Este. Golf courses like Corales and La Cana are all over, some with ocean views, although its baseball that’s stolen the hearts of locals.

Things to do in Punta Cana

Diverse terrain is the backdrop for things to do in Dominican Republic. Kayak along the Punta Cana shoreline through mangrove swamps or rent a sail boat and take to the open ocean. Divers can investigate coral reefs and shipwrecks or and there's whale watching excursions too. Windsurf in Puerto Plata in the morning and explore the port city after lunch. Wrap things up with a Cuba Libre in one of the beach bars along Playa Dorada. There’s more inland. Starting from the coastline the landscape gradually transforms from busy mangrove swamps and tropical rainforest, up to volcanic mountain ranges and semi-desert plateaus. Mountain bike through the forested interior or fly through the canopy on a zip line. Come sun set, order pitchers of deep red Mama Juana (rum, wine and honey) and ogle at locals move through well oiled merengue and bachata moves.

Samaná Peninsula

Samaná is the crème de la crème destination in the Dominican Republic. Unlike Puerto Plata and the other resort spots, it’s managed to retain its desert island feel. Just like when Christopher Columbus washed up on the beach after his ship the Santa Maria was grounded, driftwood and coconut husks are strewn upon the ‘virgin beaches’ – no sun loungers or parasols here then. The beachfront rings around the entire peninsula, and features some of the best beach spots of Hispaniola. There’s the three kilometres of Playa Rincon with restaurants and a fresh water stream, Las Galeras right at the end of the road that hugs the coast and Playa Fronton – a thin wedge of sand backed by steep black cliffs and crowded by a canopy of bushy palm. The El Limón waterfall is the fairy tale touch to this Eden within a paradise.

Best Time to Travel

The Dominican Republic has a tropical rainforest climate. Temperatures are consistent season to season and the major tourist destinations like Punta Cana are invariably busy no matter the time of year. This applies even in the face of tropical storms which run from June – November; in fact July to August is one of the two distinct tourist seasons. The other popular time to go is December to February – after the summer heat and consequent hurricanes have passed. It’s at this time of the year that last minute Dominican Republic holiday packages appear. As for planning in advance, the best time to go is during spring and autumn. You’ll avoid the crowds and enjoy Dominican Republic all inclusive holiday when temperatures are slightly cooler and the resorts and towns less crowded.
