When Christopher Columbus first saw the Dominican Republic, he thought that there was an undiscovered paradise before his eyes. It’s easy to understand why; it’s a beautiful island, with many sights to see and places to visit.

The Dominican Republic has a vast amount of history and culture associated with it, making it a great vacation destination. Today the island is a very popular vacation spot, with resorts on almost every part of the island.

Many tourists enjoy the golf courses and the beautiful ambers that can be found. Tours through the forests of the country as well as the cigar factories and distilleries are also quite interesting. One can find some great deals in the malls of the island.

Many of the regions of the Dominican Republic have been developed into resort spots for the many tourists that visit each year. One of these spots is Punta Cana, an area located to the East of the island, and one of the most-visited vacation destinations in the world.

Visitors are sure to enjoy the miles of beautiful beaches and resorts that can be found in Punta Cana. As an added bonus, the prices there are quite reasonable. It’s difficult to even attempt to count the number of all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana.

Another vacation hotspot is Puerto Plata, on the north part of the Dominican Republic. Like Punta Cana, there are many all-inclusive resorts in Puerto Plata, and many of them lie close to the beach. As a result, many of these results, such as Playa Dorada, are quite popular with surfers and wind surfers.

La Romana is another area of the island that offers all-inclusive resorts, although there aren’t quite as many as in Punta Cana or Puerto Plata. It does, however, have a museum with artifacts from the island natives on display, as well as a ferry that takes visitors to Catalina Island.

Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic. It’s also the oldest city in America, and has the oldest cathedral in the New World. As such, there are many historical sites to see in the area, and it offers its own all-inclusive resorts as well.

    Great article, I have been living in Dominican republic for over 2 years and in many of the areas written about here. There are a few other areas that are incredible and worth visiting in the country as well. Jarabacoa, “land of eternal spring” is one. A mountain town 45 minutes from Santiago is a great vacation getaway for those interested in seeing the “Real” Dominican Republic and experiencing some of the other activities and scenic beauty the Island has to offer
