Read on to learn why you should visit this beautiful part of the world!
Internationally known luxury resort destinations – Puerto Plata and Punta Cana – have picture-perfect beaches and every kind of activity and entertainment imaginable! The Dominican Republic is also the #1 destination for golf in the Caribbean and Latin America. This vacation is tailor-made for every preference!
Home to the first fort built in the New World, Puerto Plata is the hub for 60 miles of Atlantic beaches, including laidback towns, world-famous for wind surfing and kiteboarding. Family-friendly Playa Dorada has an 18-hole golf course, shopping mall, restaurants, dance clubs, casinos and excursion options. A stroll along Puerto Plata’s oceanfront promenade is a great way to end an afternoon of sightseeing.
Along the 20-mile sweep of powdery, white sand and swaying palms known as the Coconut Coast, it rarely rains during the day and, thanks to a lavish necklace of resorts the activities and entertainment are non-stop. Snorkel, kayak, play beach volleyball. Swim with the stars on Saona Island. After dark, head for a casino or a concert. Can we just agree to call it heaven?
