Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is one of the most visited destinations in the Caribbean. Visitors are pleasantly surprised to learn that there is much more than white sand, crystal clear waters and warm tropical sun waiting in this Instagram-worthy destination.

Make sure to pack golf clubs and be ready to hit the links because the island has many professionally designed golf courses. If golf is not part of your itinerary, you can take the family to a cultural show, horseback riding, or grab your partner and dance the night away to the fast paced, world-famous island dance, the Merengue.

For a change of pace, take a dip in the Hoyo Azul lagoon, also known as the “Blue Hole,” or visit an ecological park where you can explore and learn all about the island’s rich cultural and natural history. And of course, do not miss out on the world-class island cuisine the Dominican Republic offers.

Many vacationers choose the Dominican Republic for its beautiful beaches, but because of the various natural wonders, rich culture and family friendly activities, you can leave with memories you may not get from anywhere else in the world.
