If true escapism is what you're after, the Punta Cana region of the Dominican Republic is the place to be. Made up of thirty luxurious resorts, you can lounge in style in any of them to experience your own piece of Caribbean paradise. From the white sand that's fringed with swaying palm trees to the traditional, colonial cities that add culture and heritage facets to the island, you can fill your days with as much, or as little, activity as you like.
Saona Island Do you want to feel like you're a castaway on a desert island? You can with a short boat ride to Saona Island. Once you have stepped onto the soft white sands, you'll feel like you're in another world. Manati Park See horses, sea lions and parrots in the live shows here, and you can also handle snakes and enjoy the once in a lifetime opportunity of swimming with dolphins. A trip to Manati Park will introduce you to a whole host of majestic and exotic creatures that you may not be able to get as close to elsewhere.
Explore Santa Domingo Explore Santa Domingo It'd be a shame not to visit the island's capital as part of your visit to the Dominican Republic, and with just a short drive from the region of Punta Cana, you will be able to explore this colonial city in no time. Marvel at how the old merges with the new, providing a city full of history, dazzling architecture and amazing cathedrals. Join an Outback Safari The island of the Dominican Republic isn't all about its white sandy beaches. The lush rural scenes that can be found a little further inland are begging to be explored, too. Clamber aboard an outback safari excursion and you can be transported into the heart of the island's countryside, where you can meet the locals, dine on traditional Dominican fare and learn to boogie board on the beach. Snorkel with the Stingray It's up to you how close to underwater life you'd like to get. Whether it's donning the flippers and plunging into the sea to swim with stingray and nursing sharks, or simply watching from the safety of a kayak or floating bed, you can at Bavaro Beach.
Bavaro One of the island's most lively resorts, Bavaro is as stylish and chic as they come and it wouldn't be uncommon for you to bump into an A-list celeb or two during your stay. Enjoy a round of golf on the green, shop till you drop in one of the boutique stores, or spend the days relaxing on the beautifully soft sands, for a sophisticated Dominican Republic holiday to remember. Bayahibe Once a fishing village, approximately an hour from Bavaro, Bayahibe still retains those sleepy, peaceful vibes while also offering the perfect spot for impromptu beach parties and relaxed island fun. Punta Cana If you're after somewhere that will provide an opportunity to get away from it all, to relax beneath the beautifully warm Caribbean sun and to enjoy the finer things in life, the Punta Cana resort on the eastern shores of the Dominican Republic is the place to be. Uvero Alto If you're looking for a little more tranquillity as part of your Dominican Republic getaway, Uvero Alto is the perfect choice of resort. Secluded and pristine, Uvero Alto is fringed with coconut groves, while the coral reefs located just offshore would be ideal for a snorkelling or diving adventure. The Coconut Coast, as it is colloquially known, is the epitome of sun, sea and sand expectations.
