Holidays to the Dominican Republic
Occupying two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with Haiti, the Dominican Republic has rapidly grown to become one of the top destinations in the Caribbean. A Dominican Republic holiday offers the best of all worlds: year-round tropical sunshine, palm-fringed beaches, calm inviting waters and a stunning unspoilt wilderness of tropical rainforests and mountains to explore. We at Coop Travel have bargain holidays to Dominican Republic destinations that will take your breath away.
Well away from earthquake-stricken Haiti in the west, most Dominican Republic holidays are taken on the southeast coast, at resorts like Punta Cana, Bavaro and Las Terrenas, on the beautiful Samana Peninsula. Here, you will find a range of high quality hotels and all-inclusive resorts. Secluded palm-fringed beaches, calm shallow waters and a variety of marine life – including humpback whales – make it perfect for families.
Cabarete, on the north coast, offers cheap holidays to Dominican Republic that appeal predominantly to young, active fun-seekers. Adrenaline junkies can satisfy their urges with a range of water sports including windsurfing, wake-boarding and sailing, or head for the mountainous interior on horseback or with a walking guide. Relaxation-wise there’s a lively range of clubs, bars and restaurants as well as the fabulous Cabarete beaches.
Dominican Republic package holidays are popular with all age groups. Playa Cofresi is a stunning purpose-built resort with excellent amenities for children. The sweeping bay, backed by forested mountains, offers a range of watersports, while the Ocean World Waterpark boasts the world’s biggest dolphinarium.
If you’re looking for last minute Dominican Republic holidays to get away from it all, we at Coop Travel recommend Juan Dulio, a tranquil, picturesque beach resort that’s the perfect base for exploring the mangrove swamps and prehistoric caves of the south coast. The swaying palms, coral reefs and powder-soft beaches make it a popular choice for honeymooners. We also offer cheap late deals to the Dominican Republic’s historic resort of Santo Domingo. Packed with heritage attractions, it is the oldest European settlement in the New World.
