The Dominican Republic attracts several tourists every year because of the beauty of its beaches and its exceptional weather. This Caribbean country not only has beautiful beaches, but also a rich culture of music, art and baseball. Discover the country by dancing to Latin music in Puerto Plata late at night or relaxing with your children in Punta Cana. You will love it!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
The country's official currency is the Dominican Peso (DOP). U.S. dollars and credit and debit cards are also accepted at tourist resorts. Remember to communicate the dates of your stay in the Dominican Republic to your banking institution if you plan to use your cards on the island.
Electrical outlets used in the Dominican Republic are the same as in Canada. However, voltage and frequency may differ depending on the hotel. If your devices do not have the words: INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60Hz, plan ahead and bring a converter.
It is strongly recommended that your Canadian passport be valid for at least 6 months after the date of your return from travel. For more information, visit the Government of Canada's website.
