The Dominican Republic is one of two countries located on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. It is the larger of the two, occupying two thirds of the island; the smaller country is Haiti. You’ll find the highest peak in the Caribbean here, as well as the lowest point.
Santo Domingo, the nation’s capital, is all gritty, urban street life, while a stones throw away you will find peaceful, rural villages. Santo Domingo is something of cultural melting pot; similar to London or New York, with a buzz to match that found in Cuba’s Havana.
Westerners will probably be most familiar with the Dominican Republic’s large, all-inclusive resorts which stretch the length of the countries coastline; generally in the best spots. There are hotel’s that cater specifically for families, romantic resorts for couples and specialist ‘adults only’ resorts for singletons. These hotels offer everything a holidaymaker could want; a never ending supply of drinks, a choice of restaurants to dine at, numerous swimming pools and luxury facilities such as spas and beauty centres. Many have their own private beach, and some even have casinos and nightclubs on site.
Look beyond the walls of these gated communities and you’ll find sugar plantations stretching for miles, small villages, and shanty towns. The Peninsula de Samana is a great place to explore, with a strong European Colonial vibe and a laid-back atmosphere. For those interested in windsurfing and sailing, Cabarete on the North Coast has some of the best winds in the Caribbean for watersports, drawing enthusiasts from all over the world. And for something completely different, head inland, up to the mountain villages of Jarabacoa and Constanza.
The Dominican Republic is undoubtedly beautiful, but it is also a potentially dangerous holiday destination. Stray into the wrong area, particularly at night, and there is a high chance of being robbed or worse. Many people do not leave their gated holiday resorts for this reason. Replacing holiday money, important documents or belongings out of your own pocket can put a real dampener on your trip, and having to pay for emergency medical treatment might work out very expensive. It is common sense therefore, to invest in good quality travel cover when you travel here.
