Quick Guide to Dominican Republic
Dominican Republic holidays are one of the Caribbean's up-and-comers, thanks to the beautiful scenery, fantastic beaches and some well-preserved historic colonial architecture on show on this half of this shared island. Its ever-increasing popularity means that in 2014 and 2015 holidays to the Dominican Republic are sure to become more and more widespread - so get there before the crowds!
The Dominican Republic sits right on the edge of the Caribbean Sea, so the resorts on the south side of the island are on the Caribbean coast whilst the resorts on the north side of the island have an Atlantic coastline. As you might imagine from this, the north coast resorts are usually cheaper cheaper, although the sea is still warm and clear with plenty of sea creatures to spot.
The capital of Santo Domingo and the miles of lovely beaches are both must-sees on a holiday in the Dominican Republic, but be sure to take time to explore some of the interior of the island too. National parks with lush vegetation and dramatic scenery are waiting for you, and make a great change from sunbathing every day!
