Dominican Republic

There's no place like vacationing in the Dominican Republic, that's one reason why its resorts continue to make the top lists of the very "Best Places to Stay in the Caribbean" year after year. Built on a culture of unlikely influences, the Dominican Republic is an ideal vacation destination for... well everyone!

Culturally diverse, you can experience both ancient and modern cultures that are distinctly Caribbean in a single day. he Dominican Republic's music, art, sports, religion and especially its food appeals to all. To truly understand the depth of the Dominican people you must understand the importance of two primary pastimes; Baseball and Carnival. Much more than a national pastime, baseball is a major source of national pride and identity. In fact, almost 40 percent of players in the U.S. Major League Baseball and minor leagues come from Latin America - with most of those coming from the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican version of Carnival, the annual celebration of independence, is like no other and is judged to be one of the best celebrations of Carnival in the Caribbean. It is hard to describe and must be experienced. The celebration centers around Santiago and there are many hotels and resorts near the Carnival celebrations.

Another favorite festival is the Festival de Merengue: Santo Domingo. Few things are more quintessentially Dominican than the annual Merengue and Bachata Music Festivals.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Snowmobiling

    Snowmobiling began to take off in the 1950's as lightweight design emerged. At first, snowmobiling was a topic of dispute, because snowmobilers like to take advantage of the flexibility of their machines to travel off-road, thereby disrupting otherwise pristine environments. Others objected to snowmobilers because their machines were noisy and polluted the environment.
