The country you’ve always dreamed of visiting: The Dominican Republic.

What dream destination lies just an eight-hour flight away? What country boasts a fascinating history, a rich culture, unsurpassed natural splendour and a year-round summer climate? The Dominican Republic of course. Meet your next holiday destination! 

Describing the Dominican Republic as a paradise on earth wouldn’t be exaggerating one bit. Discovered by Columbus in 1492 already, the island played an important role in American history. The country has plenty of historical places of interest and is more vibrant today than ever. Expect to encounter art, music, festivals and pulsating merengue rhythms everywhere. And that’s saying nothing of its delicious rum, chocolate, coffee and cigars – a country, in short, that will delight travellers who appreciate the finer things in life.

The Dominican Republic after all has plenty to delight travellers. A good 402km of the country’s 1,609-km coastline for one is beach. And don’t confuse a Dominican beach for just any beach – this is the Caribbean at its finest. The island and its warm-hearted and welcoming locals invite you to go on an (ecotourism) adventure and explore the amazing national parks, mountains, rivers and stretches of coast. Or why not fully immerse yourself in the island’s culture by booking a stay at one of the many luxury resorts or guest houses so you can completely unwind?

The Dominic Republic, after all, is an absolute tourist hotspot. Did you know, for instance, that it’s the number-one golf destination in the Caribbean and Latin America? It boasts no less than 25 golf courses, all beckoning visitors with their unbelievably green fairways, each of them set against a mountainous backdrop and breath-taking coastline. A must-visit for anyone serious about golf in other words. But holiday-goers looking for peace and quiet also need look no further. With its idyllic coasts and first-class travel accommodations, the Dominican Republic is the premier destination for tourists looking for sun and relaxation, for newlyweds, and even company executives and incentive groups.
