Located on the island of Hispaniola in the Greater Antilles archipelago, the Dominican Republic shares their island with the nation of Haiti. The nation's capital, Santo Domingo, was the site of the first permanent European settlement in the New World. Today, the warm weather, friendly inhabitants and sandy beaches has made the Dominican Republic a popular vacation site for travelers from around the globe. Summer is the low season for this area, offering affordable rates for visitors.

Primary Destination Cities

As the second largest Caribbean nation, the Dominican Republic offers several choices for destination cities, for your summer vacation. The Bavaro/Punta Cana area is located in the southeastern portion of the country. Miles and miles of pristine beaches make this area one of the more popular destinations. This area is often referred to as La Costa del Coco, or the Coconut Coast. Samana is another popular tourist destination city, with a large resort area, airport, beautiful beaches, and world-class golf courses. Along the northern coast, Puerto Plata offers visitors Victorian architecture, surfing and remote beaches at the northeast corner of the island.

Accommodations

The accommodations in the Dominican Republic range from small, boutique hotels to bed and breakfasts, to large all-inclusive complexes. Villa Serena is a small, 21-room luxury hotel in Samana. Each Victorian-decorated room features a large balcony that overlooks the ocean. For even more personalized attention, a bed and breakfast, such as Bahia Chiquita, offers four rooms with a tropical theme, all within yards from the beach. However, if your ideal summer vacation includes entertainment, non-stop activities and world-class beaches, Punta Cana and Bavaro offer several all-inclusive resorts with something for everyone. The Majestic Colonial Punta Cana offers 658 rooms, all with jacuzzi tubs. This resort, as with most all-inclusives, includes all meals, snacks and domestic drinks in the room price, as well as a wide range of daily activities.
