Why The Dominican Republic Is Proving To Be A Popular Choice

In recent months the Dominican Republic has welcomed an increase in visitors to their Island. So what is it that makes Dominican Republic holidays shout “Come and visit me!”


Well known for its tropical climate, the Dominican Republic has some fantastic weather throughout the year, where temperatures can rise to 32°C. The best time to travel would be between November and March when scorching heat is guaranteed. However if you don’t mind the odd shower, then the Dominican is the ideal place to travel to in the summer, making this destination popular all year round.


When you think of the Dominican Republic, you probably picture white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, and you aren’t far off. Punta Cana’s beach is the granddaddy of all the beaches in Dominican where resort guests can stroll the endless miles of soft white sand. Head further north and you will be met by the Atlantic Ocean. Playa Dorada is a resort beach experience, and with the customary all inclusive, you can roll out of your room and hit the buffet before a day of sun and sand.

Want to hop out of your bed and be by the pool in 2 minutes? Dominican can offer you this. The Riu Palace Macao is the icing on the cake kind of hotel. During the day enjoy a cocktail whilst topping up your tan, and when night falls enjoy a gourmet meal in one of the a la carte restaurants and try your hand in the casino. 5* luxury is very affordable here and everyone can enjoy being pampered without the price tag.


Do you fancy swimming with dolphins, sunning yourself on a catamaran or being Indian Jones for the day? All this is possible in the Dominican. Feel the adrenaline rush as you fly through the air on zip wires, or build that perfect tan on a catamaran trip. Sail the seas and snorkel with some exotic fish, and to finish the trip try the local drink Mamajuana. Excursions can be booked in resort and credit or debit cards are accepted. You can book some in the UK before you go meaning you won’t need to eat into your spending money.


Dominican is not all about the beaches, it also boasts beautiful greenery and majestic mountains. Chavon River may look familiar if you book a river cruise as this was used in the famous film Jurassic Park. It’s not every day you get to walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs, well not ones who were roaming the earth over 20 years ago.
