Favorite Sun Destinations: Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic · About Hotels

A very popular tourist destination. The D.R as it is commonly known, shares the island of Hispanola with Haiti and has a lot to offer vacationers of all ages and budgets.

The main tourist areas are some distance apart. Each area has its own distinctive selling features and attractions. One really needs to holiday in each of these areas before really getting to know the D.R. The regions are listed below.

For approximately $5000-6000 CDN a family of two adults and two children under 12, can expect to be comfortably catered to in a superior all-inclusive resort for one week.

South East

Punta Cana

Wonderful white-sand beaches, and millions of palm trees lend this whole area a totally "tropical" feel. Resorts tend to feature roofs made from the Cana palms that give the region its name. Read about the region, and what it has to offer the travelling family.


A newer resort area of the Dominican Republic. Again great beaches and resorts. Read all about it here.


Santo Domingo

This colonial city, the capital of the Domincan Republic, is the oldest city in the Caribbean. Excellent beach resorts can be found in this area. These are ideal for the traveller who wants a taste of history and local culture, while still enjoying the facilities of a good resort.


Puerto Plata

A great location. Good beaches and a large selection of resorts continue to make Puerto Plata a very popular destination. The resorts located within the Playa Dorada complex are an ideal choice for families. An excellent beach, 18-hole golf course, shopping complex, clubs, restaurants, bicycle paths etc. are all to be found here.
