A Caribbean Vacation Package To The Dominican Republic

Feb 7, 2008
A Caribbean Vacation to the Dominican Republic is something that many many people do every year. What is stopping you from taking a Dominican Republic Vacation Package this year?

It is most likely because you don't know what a vacation to the Dominican republic would be like.

You probably don't know that the Dominican republic at 18750 square miles is one of the largest islands in the Caribbean. This only means that you need to do some research because on an island the size of the Dominican Republic has parts you will like a lot, and others that you won't.

As an example the south east corner is the agricultural side and it has an exciting high quality night life. On the other hand the southwest part of the island is more arid, less crowded and more desert like. Research is important otherwise your Caribbean Vacation to the Dominican Republic could end up a major disappointment because you end up on a part of the island not to your taste.

Some of the top destinations for a Dominican Republic Vacation and ones that perhaps need deeper investigation could be the following.
Cabarete on the north coast is the place to go if you are young, it is a fun place to be with good water sports, is considered by many to be one of the top places in the world for windsurfing and kiteboarding. It is also a great place to surf, mountain biking, horseriding, canyoning, and lots of other adventure sports.

Sosua on the north coast has a beautiful sheltered beach with white sand, and clear turquoise sea. This is the place if you want to go snorkelling and scuba diving, and there are good restaurants.

Playa Dorada is a gated resort community and is where most of the All Inclusive Hotels are found and is on the north coast. You can do almost anything in the way of recreation here, from golf courses to casinos, , and there is a long white sand beach, but get out of the community and there is a lot of things to see and do.

The Playa Grande Cabrera area has spectacular unspoiled white sand beaches and some exclusive villas. Playa Grande beach is one of the best ten beaches in the world, and there is a beautiful golf course here.

Las Terrenas is on the Samana Peninsula in the northeast, with a beautiful white sand beach and calm sea. This has a Mediterranean feel to it, and is a very relaxing place through the mountains.

Las Galeras also on the Samana Peninsula is a remote spot with boutique hotels, hidden beaches and is a real romantic getaway.

Punta Cana on the east coast is totally Caribbean postcard, and some good all inclusive hotels.

Bayahibe on the south coast has a really tranquil setting, a great beach, and the not to be missed National Park

La Romana also on the south coast includes the 7000 acre Casa de Campo with two golf courses and some very exclusive villas. The word luxury springs to mind here.

Juan Dolio on the south coast is the Dominican Republic's Riviera

Boca Chica also on the south coast is a place with smaller hotels, where you are much closer to local life, and there is good diving here.

Finally Santo Domingo which is the sophisticated and cultural Capital of the Dominican Republic.

Further investigation by you of these area of the Dominican Republic will enable you to decide on, and then plan for the perfect Caribbean vacation to the Dominican Republic
