White sandy beaches lined with coconut trees is what the Dominican Republic is best known for! With over 200 beaches — many of which remain uncrowded and undeveloped — visitors can find their slice heaven and soak up the sun. Check out Punta Cana’s 30-mile stretch of beach, or venture to Samaná’s world-ranked beaches such as Playa Rincón.
Visit Santo Domingo
Santo Domingo is the largest city in the entire Caribbean and Dominican Republic’s capital. Over 500 years old, the city is known for its history and heritage. Immerse yourself in the Dominican culture and spend the day admiring the city’s colonial architecture and visit the center’s shopping malls, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants!
Go Whale Watching
Watch the 1,500 to 2,000 Humpback whales that migrate to the waters of the Samaná Bay on a guided boat tour or from the land at the observatory in Punta Balandra. These gentle giants return annually to the warm Caribbean waters to give birth and mate for the following year. The Dominican Republic is just one of three breeding grounds in the North Atlantic. Peak whale watching season is from January to March.
Visit a National Park
The Dominican Republic is home to 6,000 species of thriving flora and fauna. Plan an excursion to Jaragua National Park and explore the area’s beaches, lagoons, dry forests, and cays. Nearby, the Sierra de Bahoruco is the only cloud forest in the Caribbean. Whether you choose to go hiking or bird watching, visiting these beautiful parks is a must!
