Renowned for its pristine beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters, its warmth and relaxed Caribbean charms, Dominican Republic has become one of the top world destinations for seaside tourism in the Tropics. Yet, the island also offers a nostalgic colonial atmosphere and a great natural beauty, all waiting to be discovered by wanderlust travellers.
From its long sandy beaches bordered by palm trees in the Punta Cana region to the pristine beaches, cascading waterfalls and lush tropical rain forests in the North of the Island, Dominican Republic offers it all. History aficionados and gourmet lovers will enjoy strolling on the cobblestoned Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo, the first city built in the New World, and taste Dominican rum, chocolate and coffee. Nestling in the heart of the Caribbean, this Island is a paradise of outstanding variety of landscapes - with its woody hillsides plunging down into the sea, its ''postcard'' beaches and its tiny little islands around, Dominican Republic is the perfect destination for travellers seeking a secluded spot.
