A little background
The Dominican Republic has been a popular vacation destination for years - and with pristine beaches, friendly locals, and so many warm sunny days a year, it's no wonder why. Of course, there's more to do in the Dominican Republic than just hit the beach - attractions include zip lines, great golf, and casinos. Each city in the DR has its own unique vibe, so you may need to return more than once. Explore the rich history of Santo Domingo (Spain's first city in the "new world") or relax on the beach in Punta Cana - whatever you choose to do, you will have a great time. The Dominican Republic sits on the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola in the West Indies (the western half of the island is home to Haiti). JetBlue serves every major city in the Dominican Republic with daily nonstop flights from multiple US cities.
Hidden at the base of a 200-foot cliff near the town of Cabrera, Hoyo Azul is a "must-do" for everyone on their vacation to the Dominican Republic. At the end of a short hike through Scape Park, this breathtaking freshwater lagoon filled with turquoise, crisp-cool waters awaits. The hike itself offers stunning panoramic views of the park and opportunities to learn about native plant and animal species on the island, including wild orchids.
Zip through the forest
Anamuya Mountain, while home to many indigenous species of plants and animals, is also home to the Dominican Republic's longest zipline! A zipline trip offers great views and spectacular photos - the experience takes you through a tropical rain forest and high above Anamuya Lake. With no experience needed, this is the perfect adventure to get your adrenalin pumping.
