There’s more than meets the eye to this mid-ocean paradise. The Dominican Republic is scattered with a collection of cultures as well as the celebrated laid-back Caribbean vibe. Covered with coconut-palm-scattered beaches, exotic rainforests and the highest mountains in the Caribbean, this diverse landscape hosts a number of surprises. To discover the rural beauty on offer, venture to the centre of the island. Draped in lush foliage and fertile valleys, the cloud-blanketed mountains of Constanza are an untouched treasure straight from Europe. Infused with a Spanish flavour and infectious buzz, the capital, Santo Domingo, is renowned for its charming cobbled streets, saccharine buildings and colonial architecture. The first city of the New World; it isn’t any wonder why it’s recognised as a World Heritage Site. Guests seeking adventure can head to Puerto Plata to explore canyons and partake in watersports; while Punta Cana is ideal for golf-enthusiasts, hosting 11 exceptional courses. Punta Cana is also a popular choice for honeymooners and families, and is home to modern, Caribbean-cool resort, Eden Roc at Cap Cana. A top-tip for first-timers, visit the Avenida Venezuela in Santo Domingo for authentic Latin music and dancing.
