Unspoilt landscapes and a tropical climate
Travel to the north of the island to Bahia Maimon and settle into the laid back Caribbean lifestyle, popular with families, groups and golfers. The nearby Playa Dorada offers a livelier alternative, with shopping, casinos, bars, restaurants and an 18-hole golf course.
To the east of the Dominican Republic lies Punta Cana, with its offshore coral reef stretching out for over 30 kilometres. Punta Cana offers great opportunities to try snorkelling and scuba diving, or to swim amongst dolphins, nurse sharks and rays. The Punta Cana Nature Reserve lets you discover the realities of a rural tropical jungle.
Bavaro is a quieter alternative where you can forget about the real world and indulge in some true Caribbean charm. The north east of the island brings you to Somana. With its recently opened airport this area is still less commercial than some of the other resorts. With unspoilt beaches and a multitude of tropical rainforests, coconut groves and waterfalls, relaxation is certainly on the menu.
The snorkelling paradise of Isla Catalina is just off the coast in the south east region on Bayahibe. This romantic location, that’s ideal for lovers and families alike, is close to La Romana airport so transfer times are kept to a minimum. This whole area offers peace and tranquility with the option of a livelier choice of bars, restaurants and nightlife if you need it.
