The coexistence of unspoiled beaches and arid desert make the Dominican Republic a magical place to visit. Head to Hoyo Azul to snorkel and reef dive or explore 100,000-year-old caves in the underwater cave system of Cueva de las Maravillas. Relax on the sugar-colored sand of Punta Cana or go back in time and admire the historic heart of the nation in the Zona Colonial area. From national parks to saucy nightclubs, the Dominican Republic will entertain you throughout your stay!
