Those sugar-white sands of the Caribbean are calling, and Dominican Republic hotels are answering with everything from lavish seaside cabanas and spas to all-inclusive plans and programs tailored especially for children. Sitting on the island of Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic is one of the largest tourist destinations in the Caribbean, yet there’s plenty of beachfront for everyone to settle down and relax without having to rub elbows too closely during Dominican Republic vacations.
Some visitors who arrive on flights to Dominican Republic opt to stay in hotels in the country’s capital city of Santo Domingo, where a Spanish influence is felt in the delicious dishes like fried plantations and seasoned beans and rice. But most visitors head to the Punta Cana region, one of the most popular areas for Dominican Republic resorts.

Golf courses sit on cliffs overlooking the sea, so it may be hard to concentrate to concentrate on your swing with such incredible views. Coral reefs crawl with underwater creatures, particularly at La Caleta national park, which is popular with snorkelers and divers. Some people who stay in Dominican Republic resorts try to include local cultural events on their itinerary, including dancing to merengue music, or watching a local baseball game, which is very popular with the locals. Or, visitors can go hiking in the mountains, settle into a soothing spa, or simply relax on the beach while soaking up sunshine and swimming in the warm waves.
