This island, with its all-inclusive holidays in resort hotels, has become one of the top world destinations for seaside tourism. Yet, the country also offers a nostalgic colonial atmosphere and boasts great natural beauty.
The Dominican Republic, nestling in the heart of the Caribbean, has made tourism a major economic driver. It has enormous potential, not the least because of its long sandy beaches bordered by palm trees in the Punta Cana region to the east of the island. Dozens of hotels have sprung up here and most offer all-inclusive holidays. It is hardly surprising that seaside and sporting activities or simply doing nothing provide the main attractions at this location. But these are not its only attractions. In the North, the Samaná Peninsula, with its woody hillsides plunging down into the sea, is the perfect destination for travellers seeking a secluded spot.
