Enjoy vibrant nightlife, charming diversity and the warmth of the Caribbean sun

Following the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492, the Dominican Republic became the first permanent Spanish settlement in the Americas. Referred to as Quisqueya (mother of all lands) by the locals, this beautiful country is treasured by its people and it’s easy to see why. One of the most diverse Caribbean countries, residents hail from Jewish and Japanese communities as well as a range of Afro-Caribbean groups. This is what gives the Dominican Republic its unique charm – there is no single influence here but a world of cultures co-existing together.

Equally as diverse is the landscape and wildlife. From mighty Pico Duarte to tranquil Lago Enriquillo, this varied landscape is home to over 13,000 species of flora and fauna. Observe leatherback turtle and flamingo as you explore the thick jungle and shaded lagoons. Alternatively, unwind in the warm Caribbean sun. With over 1,600 kilometres of incredible coastline and over 200 beaches to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect spot. Afterwards, head into buzzing Santo Domingo to party with the locals. Sample delicious Dominican delicacies, enjoy vibrant live music and dance the merengue until your feet hurt.
