The Dominican Republic, on the island of Hispaniola, is a large and diverse Caribbean country with gorgeous sunswept beaches, tropical rainforests and a mountainous interior.
There are plenty of adventurous activities to do here from watersports and diving on the Punta Cana reef to zip lining, golf, jeep tours, sailing trips and cultural tours.
Many of our featured hotels are located in and around Punta Cana on the east-northeast coast with long stretches of white sand beaches and beautiful warm seas lapping the shore.
Temperatures don’t differ a great deal throughout the year but rainfall increases through the summer months. British Airways and Thomson fly direct from the UK to Punta Cana and there are several indirect options too.
