This family holiday to Canada and the Dominican Republic in 2021 starts with 3 nights in Montreal followed by 7 nights in the sun in Dominican Republic.
Montréal, is the largest city in Canada’s Quebec region, situated on the banks of the St Lawrence River. The combination of French and British influences gives rise to an exuberant creativity, reflected in the festive fizz of endless cultural goings-on. Place Jacques-Cartier, next to City Hall, and Place d’Armes, which faces the Notre-Dame Basilica—a place of worship renowned for its breathtaking interiors—are absolute must-see spots in Old Montréal. The quays of the Old Port whose star attraction is the Montréal Science Centre, offer a host of activities, including the highly popular river excursions. The Botanical Garden, second-largest in the world, provides a lush green setting for the Insectarium. Mid-river, Parc Jean-Drapeau, home to the popular amusement park La Ronde and the Casino, attracts visitors looking for good times.
After 3 nights in Montreal it’s time to head to the sunny Caribbean! A visit to the Dominican Republic is all about fun and sun. A laid back, relaxed vibe runs throughout the island, from the local bars, restaurants and beaches to the resort hot-spots. We highly recommend a visit to Santo Domingo as one of the best things to do on a visit to the Dominican Republic. The historic centre has amazing architecture, world class museums and unique old-world charm.
Water sports are very popular and one of the top things to do in the Dominican Republic, with all those beautiful beaches and azure blue waters it’s no wonder! Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), snorkelling, sea kayaking and diving are popular. There are some well populated reefs around the island with sharks, rays, tropical fish and lots of other colourful marine life to be discovered.
Montreal - Take the fully narrated Hop-on, Hop-off City Sightseeing tour which explores the bustling downtown area. You will discover and intriguing blend of Old World charm and North American modernism as you pass Montreal’s fascination landmarks.
A tourist mecca for a reason, Costa del Coco, the ‘coconut coast’ has over 60km of reef-protected white sandy beaches surrounded by coconut trees. Despite the presence of fellow tourists, it’s easy to feel disconnected from the rest of the world here.
