What to do in the Dominican Republic


Beaches

The Dominican Republic offers beaches for all tastes. You should go to Puerto Plata if you like golden sandy beaches where you are surrounded by vegetation. Choose Punta Cana if you prefer turquoise water and long white sand beaches where you can walk for hours. Kitesurfers will be delighted in Cabarete.


27 Waterfalls of Damajagua

Do you love nature and thrills? If you stay in Puerto Plata, take an excursion to the Damajagua Falls. Once at the top of the mountain, wearing your helmet and life jacket, you will jump into different pools and slide into smaller falls to take a swim. Do not forget your water shoes!


Watch a baseball game

Since baseball is the country's national sport, it's no wonder that the Dominican Republic is the second country in the world (after the United States) with the most players in Major League Baseball. If you want to be close to the locals, there is nothing better than attending a game.


Swim with dolphins

Have you always wanted to swim with dolphins? Make your dream come true! There are several dolphinariums in the Dominican Republic that will allow you to swim with these cetaceans, feed them and even cuddle them. This is a moment you will not easily forget!


Catamaran tour

Do you have sea legs? Treat yourself and your better half to a romantic ride on a catamaran. Some excursions even offer snorkeling to observe tropical fish and starfish.
