Situated in the Caribbean, hugged on both sides by the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, sits the second largest island called Hispaniola in the Greater Antilles. The Dominican Republic shares this island with Haiti, and it a warm, tropical vacation destination for those of you who are ready to spend your summer lounging on the beach, or exploring the native tropical landscape of the island. The Dominican Republic is a popular tourist destination – and why wouldn’t it be?
It’s a beautiful nation with beaches, access to the warm Caribbean waters, rainforests and mountain ranges. It has an area of over 18,000 square miles, with plenty of places for you to choose from when you’re picking the perfect place for your tropical vacation. The island is full of resorts, beaches, wildlife and diverse culture that you’ll never be able to get enough of. The Dominican Republic has a tropical climate, making it warm all year round – the perfect spot for both summer fun and escaping from the blistering winter months.
Of course, choosing just the right resort is what comes next. Couples, families, or people traveling for business will all be able to find something that fits their needs. And not just the type of resort, but also the surrounding area. If you’re looking for warm, sunny beaches and miles of uninterrupted ocean outside your front door, you’ll certainly find it here. But, on the other hand, if you’re seeking a little adventure, you won’t have to look far for a resort settled in the mountains, or surrounded by lush forests with zipline tours just around the next tree.
