With some 6.4 million visitors a year, Dominican Republic is the Caribbean’s most popular destination, and it’s easy to see why. Boasting an incredible array of landscapes comprising miles of white, palm-tree lined beaches, soaring mountains, mangroves, rainforests and much more, it's perfect destination for beach and adventure lovers alike.
Whilst crumbling colonial architecture, monuments, and ancient ruins, stand as testament to the country’s long and storied history it's the modern diverse cultural composition displayed in the bustling nightlife that brings DR to life.
Starting and ending in Punta Cana, in between you will explore the country's historic capital of Santo Domingo; the charming plantations of Jarabacoa; and experience the tranquil, natural beauty of the Samana Peninsula.
British Airways offer regular direct flights from London Gatwick to Punta Cana, as do TUI who also operate flights from Manchester International Airport.
Although the weather is warm year round with an average annual temperature of 25°, the best period to visit is between December and March when rainfall is lowest.
We recommend a minimum of 5 days.
UK Citizens do not require a tourist visa to enter the Dominican Republic, and may remain there for up to 30 days, though this may be extended.
