Destinations / Caribbean / Dominican Republic
A holiday in Dominican Republic is a Caribbean experience that will stay with you as a cherished memory. The combination of delightfully warm and welcoming local people, gorgeous scenery and fabulous beaches and, of course, wonderful weather guarantee the popularity of holidays in Dominican Republic.
DR, as it is affectionately known, has endless miles of coastline which are rich in marine life (the odd humpback whale has even been known to pass by on its migration route) and the geography of the island is very diverse. Outside of the capital city, Santo Domingo, this Caribbean island is extremely rural and there are areas where time has hardly touched. Rustic farming scenes are common inland and pretty fishing villages by the coast lap the turqouise waters where visitors will grace the pristine beaches and boost the local economy.
The intense colours of the Caribbean are omnipresent in Dominican Republic and holidaymakers will be mesmerised by the toytown-like houses in Puerto Plata, gaily painted in vibrant shades of pink, purple, yellow, red, green and blue and window boxes overflowing with bright flowers. Elsewhere, the architecture is somewhat graceful and Colonial influences are strong. Since Christopher Columbus landed here, the island's troubled past has evolved to create a distinct culture that is rich and varied and even includes traces of the native Taino, the original indigenous people.
Holidays in Dominican Republic are primarily enjoyed for sun and relaxation. The island never loses its appeal because the landscape is simply so lovely and the people equally so. Enjoy your Caribbean paradise.
