The Dominican Republic was once just an exotic Caribbean Island , it is now a fantastic holiday destination, one we happily recommend. Since 1998, food, hotel and beach standards have greatly improved and are now world class. The country has a wonderful laid back, relaxed vibe.

Dominican Republic All Inclusive

We definitely recommend going all-inclusive on your Dominican Republic holiday. This ensures you get a wide variety of food options in your resort and don’t have to worry about opening your wallet while you’re away. From family-friendly hotels to adults-only resorts, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs and budget. The fabulous Dreams Palm Beach Resort is the ultimate haven of tranquillity, luxury and relaxation. If you like more of a party atmosphere, head to Breathless Punta Cana, which boasts regular pool parties, talent shows and exciting activities. Both are available on an all-inclusive basis.

Favourite Destination: The golden state of California is an incredible destination. Best time to visit would be May and October-May when the temperature is mild and the flowers are at their best. October is best to experience the amazing Sunsets. I would suggest flying into San Francisco, spending a few days in this awesome city, then driving up to Northern California to get a taste for the breathtaking national parks. The you could continue your trip back south, driving down the California coast which boasts stunning scenery and some of the best beach communities in the world. Top things to do would be visit a winery, drop into Alcatraz and call in to Disney and Universal Studios in LA.
