A holiday to the Dominican Republic promises the opportunity to discover one of the Caribbean’s most attractive islands. This colourful, laid back country came late to the tourism party and is now developing itself as a tourist destination. This development has been led by local communities which brings an appeal and authenticity all of its own. A holiday to The Dominican Republic is still uncrowded, even on the most popular beaches, resorts are low-rise in that they are no higher than the palm trees, and streets are lined with small local cafes, bars and restaurants rather than international chains. Visitors to this stunning Caribbean Island can really experience something unique, a rare opportunity that may not last forever.
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.
If you feel like taking a little of a more relaxed approach to your water sports, we can highly recommend a boat tour. Enjoy some music and dancing aboard a sunset cruise from Punta Cana. Try some snorkelling in the warm waters then enjoy a drink or two in those same waters as a walk-up bar is set up on a sand bar in the Caribbean Sea. It’s a picture-perfect experience to remember.
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.
