Last Minute Holidays to the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic, one of the Caribbean's most popular holiday destinations, is infused with Latin spirit and glorious sunshine that make it a superb last minute retreat.

Expect beaches, cities and splendours for your last minute break

The Dominican Republic is among the most visited of Caribbean destinations, at only nine hours' direct flight from the UK.

Step onto its golden sand or the cobbled streets amid colonial architecture, and the popularity enjoyed by this destination makes lots of sense. Serene days of snorkelling and horseriding can be yours at Uvero Alto, for instance, and it's a similar story at La Romana, which is abundant in natural beauty but also features plenty of medieval charm.

If you like your beaches with a sense of scale and peppered with colourful snack shacks, Bavaro has 10 kilometres of sunny coast to savour. Of course, the traditional seaside village experience can be had at Bayahibe, whose sleepy community is balanced by the bustling Blue Flag beach.

The best time of year to book your last minute holiday

Like much of the Caribbean, the high season of the Dominican Republic actually matches what would be winter back home. Between November and May, prices and crowds are at their highest, but then again, so are the temperatures. It's the driest time of the year for Caribbean countries, but it also means the rest of the year, when – tropical rain is only slightly more common – offers all the sun at far lower a price.

Whenever you choose to visit though, keep in mind that a last minute holiday means booking eight weeks or less ahead of the departure date for the best deals.

Other popular last minute Caribbean holidays

The Dominican Republic shares the warm Caribbean temperatures and clear waters with a host of equally sublime locations. Get stuck into the 'don't worry, be happy' holiday spirit in Jamaica, stroll among Cadillacs in lively Cuba, or lose yourself in the volcanic heartlands and golden coastlines of sun-drenched St Lucia. Of course, the Dominican Republic is popular for a reason, as our Dominican Republic travel guide makes clear, and if you're contemplating a last minute holiday, check out our hotel recommendations below.
