WHY TO VISIT DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Lagoons and coconut trees, sun and music, people’s smiles and exotic animals, the Dominican Republic has many treasures to offer visitors.

Santo Domingo, the capital, is the first city built on American soil. This can clearly be seen in the Zona Colonial with its cobbled streets, church (the oldest of the New World), and the San Nicolas de Bari Hospital. Also visit the Museo de las Casas Reales which is very interesting.

Do not miss the two national parks in the Cordillera Central where you can hike below the peaks that reach to over 3,000 meters, or dare raging rivers when canyoning.

The spa resort of Cabarete is a place well-known for enjoying windsurfing, but also for the opportunity to relax pleasurably on its beautiful beach.

To witness the breeding season of the humpback whales, go to Bahia de Samana in January and February: You will not forget the sight of these giant animals!
