Dominican Republic Holidays

  • Now Larimar Punta Cana
  • Secrets Royal Beach
  • Dreams La Romana

Dominican Republic Holidays offer a high degree of variety in every aspect of your relaxing time in the Caribbean. Even the land speaks of these contrasting possibilities: the interior offers an extensive mountain range and the highest peak in the Caribbean (Pico Duarte); yet you’ll also find the lowest point too, in the saltwater lake of Lago Enriquillo. Travelling from ocean to interior, you’ll see the intensely modern urban sprawl give way to huge plantations and small villages. Both the rural and urban here are intriguing and beautiful.

The Dominican Republic is a land of significant historical importance, and the time spent uncovering its colonial history is time well spent. The island that the Dominican Republic shares with neighbour Haiti is Hispaniola, and site of the first European colonies in the new world. The capital, Santo Domingo, has the distinction of being the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the Americas. On their Dominican Republic holiday, the interested traveller can find many 16th Century buildings throughout Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone. These include the beautiful Catedral de Santa Maria la Menor and the impressive Fortalez Ozama, the oldest surviving military fortification in the Americas.

Luxury Holidays to Dominican Republic

This history is there to explore for those who want to, but for many, holidays to the Dominican Republic offer a near definitive set of Caribbean catch-alls. The beaches are long, white, sandy, palm-trimmed and lashed at softly by an azure sea of outstanding beauty. If you want to do nothing more than find a secluded beach, to indulge in some healthy sunbathing and relaxation, you’ll find the Dominican Republic more than sufficient.
