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 any time uncovering its colonial history is time well spent. The island that the Dominican Republic shares with neighbour Haiti is Hispaniola which was the site for 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 a Dominican Republic holiday you will find numerous fascinating 16th Century buildings throughout Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, which include the beautiful Catedral de Santa Maria la Menor and the impressive Fortalez Ozama, the oldest surviving military fortification in the Americas.
This history is there for all who wish to explore it, 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.
The real luxury of the Dominican Republic is that anything is possible. Wind surfing, kite surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, romantic strolling, mountain hiking and even vibrant nightlife: it’s all here and with Kenwood Travel, you could be too for your 2016 holiday to the Dominican Republic.
