What to Do in Dominican Republic

The Beaches

Think of the Dominican Republic, and you're bound to think of its beaches. The beaches of Punta Cana, Costa del Coco, Playa Dorada, and more offer some of the most pristine white sand on the planet. With azure blue waters and emerald tree leaves, you'll be whisked away to a tropical paradise. Each beach offers something a little different, so choose wisely.

27 Charcos

Located in a hidden jungle of the DR, Damajagua Falls—more commonly known as 27 Charcos—are a series of 27 waterfalls. Here, you can experience a true adventure. After being equipped with a helmet and life jacket, you'll have the opportunity to climb up a series of ladders and jump from the waterfalls. Adrenaline junkies, this one's for you.

Peurto Plata

Peurto Plata, known as the Silver Port, is a melting pot between the urban landscape in the foreground and lush tropical greenery as the backdrop. Here, you'll find the 16th-century fortress, Fortaleza San Felipe, a cable car, and 19th century Victorian-style houses. The city also has local restaurants, all of which add to a unique, lived-in feel.

What to See in Dominican Republic

Zona Colonial

Located in Santo Domingo, the Zona Colonial is the historic center of the city. Here, you'll find colonial buildings built as the first Spanish conquistadors arrived in the New World, including a stunning cathedral. Walk along the Calle Las Damas, the oldest paved road in the New World, then attend shops, restaurants, and cafes as locals walk by.

Los Tres Ojos National Park

Nature enthusiasts, look no further. Here, you'll find a limestone cave that contains three underground lakes (the three eyes, or "ojos"). Accessible by foot or boat, these lakes boast brilliant blues and greens and harbour local wildlife. The caves themselves are also otherworldly in nature, so look no further if you wish to be transported to another world.

Constanza and the Dominican Alps

Looking for a break from the tropical heat of the Dominican Republic’s coast? Head to the village of Constanza and the Dominican Alps, which form the heartland of the country. Here, the towering Cordillera Central forms the central mountain range, where strawberries and other vegetation grow among meadows, streams, and pine trees. Perfect for hiking and sightseeing!

Where to Stay in Dominican Republic

Santo Domingo

The capital city of the Dominican Republic is both a historic and modern jewel. This was the first formal settlement established by the Spanish Crown. Here, you'll find such areas as the famous Zona Colonial and Boca Chica, as well as the Calle El Conde, a pedestrian street with shops, restaurants, and cafes. With both Spanish and Caribbean influences, you'll find yourself in a cultural hotspot.

Punta Cana

This is not just another resort town. Punta Cana, with its impressive Bavaro Beach, is a bustling place for those looking to play during their vacation. With boats, parasailers, and swimming zones, the beach offers much in the way of activities. And when you're tired of that, check out the Hoyo Azul, a hidden cenote perfect for diving. Horseback riding or golfing, swimming or diving, there's much to do here.

La Romana

Another resort town of the Dominican Republic, this one tracing its roots to a bustling sugar economy, you'll find this area more relaxing than some of the other resort towns. Visit the Alto de Chavón, where you can shop for local goods in a replica of a 16th-century artisan village. Elsewise, enjoy fishing, golfing, or shows in the local amphitheatre.
