Dominican Republic Caribbean
Lofty palm trees and white sandy beaches await visitors to Dominican Republic, to offer them perhaps a more laid back holiday experience in the Caribbean. A luxury villa in the Dominican Republic is the ideal way to explore this beautiful island, which features the most impressive geographic diversity. Dominican Reopublic, occupying the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola, was the setting for Crhistopher Columbus’s first colony, La Isabella, as well as home to Spain’s first New World city, Santo Domingo. As you would expect, examples of period architecture –preserved and in ruins- remain in the colonial heart of Santo Domingo.
Adrenaline junkies will find their favourite destination in the region of Cabarete and the North Coast, while ecotourism is also highly developed, offering unique and exciting opportunities to scale a 150m waterfall on a rope, mountain bike along remote dirt tracks, trek to the top of a 3000m mountain or head out in a fishing boat to marvel at the humpback whales crashing about in the bay of Samana.
