Seeking tranquility

Dominican Republic holidays are ideal for all kinds of travellers, whether you love the hustle and bustle of city life or you’re looking for something a bit quieter.

If you do want to get away from the crowds, secluded beach areas that are perfect for just that include the gorgeous Cabarete, with its red coral reefs containing a quarter of the world’s marine life, and Bahia Maimon, which has been ranked by Conde Nast as among the top 10 in the world.

Or, try Sosua, where you’ll enjoy a kilometre-long beach with food and drink shacks servicing most palates. At one end of the beach is the El Batey neighbourhood, which is the main area with a good selection of restaurants and shops.

Interestingly, it’s also home to a small synagogue and a Jewish Museum that documents the history of World War Two Jewish refugees who were the original settlers. Who knew a Dominican Republic holiday would have you stretched out on the beach one minute and learning about WW2 the next?

UNESCO beaches

50 kilometres of breathtaking coastline imbued with luxury hotels and resorts makes up the eastern-most tip of the country. Aside from Punta Cana beach, which is for private use of hotel guests, two other local beaches dominate the area, these are Macao and Bavaro. Their white shores are backed by coconut palms and mangroves, and offer the mandatory warm clear water we associate with the Caribbean – except these two beaches are considered to be superior.

But, Dominican Republic holidays offer so much more than just beautiful beaches – they’re UNESCO beaches. UNESCO has sited Macao as being the best for its fine sand and beautiful palm trees. This is a pretty quiet area but there are a few small beachfront eateries, or you can dine at a restaurant atop the cliff at the southern tip of the beach.

Bavaro is another dazzling, palm-lined stretch of sand and it’s one of the most popular spots in Punta Cana – it’s even one of the longest beaches in the Caribbean. There are plenty of water-based activities for those adrenaline junkies here, from parasailing, to scuba diving and speed boating. With a selection of shops and restaurants surrounding Bavaro beach too, you’ve got everything you could need for your relaxing and cheap holiday in the Dominican Republic.

In the East

There are many excursions available for your holiday in Dominican Republic. Whether it’s sight-seeing and panoramic views, sports and adrenaline, or history that you’re after, you’re in just the right place.

The nearby rock pools of Hoyo Azul at Scape Park are surrounded by forest and incredible flora and fauna, and you’ll discover a 65-foot cave filled with clear-blue water. The fresh water pool is a sinkhole created by the collapse of limestone bedrock, exposing groundwater underneath. You can go for a swim and experience the sensation of the natural minerals from the limestone – which are thought to be healing . you can also try your hand at horse riding and the zip wire here too – it’s a good day out to tick the boxes for everyone.

Tickets can be booked online for Scape Park and transfers from your hotel can be included too.

Another great attraction in the East – its world class 18-hole golf courses. Punta Espada is regarded as the best golf club throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. Or, try the oceanfront La Cana Golf Club – one of the first established and most frequented clubs in the area. It’s true that holidays to the Dominican Republic offer something for everyone.

Great nightlife

Latin music is hugely popular in the Dominican Republic and it goes hand in hand with their love of dancing. This means good news for those who love a lively nightlife scene, as holidays in the Dominican Republic offer plenty of it!

Uvero Alto is a popular area that boasts good nightlife once you’ve enjoyed a dinner at one of its fine restaurants. You’ll find the famous Coco Bongo here where you can enjoy a spectacular dance show and soak up the incredible atmosphere. What’s more, you can dance the night away at Munga Disco, or lay down a bet at Punta Cana Hard Rock Casino – there’s tons of options!

If you are looking for a bit of traditional Latin music and dancing, head to La Bodega in Las Terrenas for a Latin disco – there’s even professional teachers here to help you out.

Another option is the ORO nightclub, which is also part of the Punta Cana Hard Rock Hotel. It’s 14,000 foot of dance floor with music blasting and hi-tech light shows, even hosting famous DJs.

You’ll tend to find that drinks prices – as well as dining out – is all reasonably priced, although you can expect drinks in nightclubs, as well as fine dining restaurants will increase, just like at home. Cheap holidays to the Dominican Republic are more than doable
