Holiday resorts in dominican republic

barahona

getting married in dominican republic

Located just a three hour drive west of Santo Domingo, this remote and relaxed little town is an undisturbed and unspoilt paradise in the middle of nowhere, perfect for those who seek utmost peace, privacy and tranquility during their Dominican Republic holidays. Founded back in 1802, this province was once a successful fishing town and a famous agricultural city, producing large quantities of coffee and sugar. Nowadays however, is not the actual town what attracts travellers to this natural environment, but the friendliness of the charming locals and the stunning natural location Surrounded by the purest and richest of nature with spectacular cliffs providing the ultimate backdrop the many deserted and secluded beaches, it is ultimately the inviting coastlines and the warmth of the people that make this place so alluring.

But beware those looking for exciting nightlife and modern attractions should look elsewhere. With its rural and modest surroundings, besides the little disco clubs scattered throughout the area, and the very few hotels, there is nothing glitzy about the southwest region. Here, locals live in simple “tejemani” style of houses, made of intertwining sticks and branches. It is perhaps the seclusion and slow-pace of living that make visitors so eager to return. Barahona's unique appeal lies not in its individual belongings, but in the beauty of the surroundings and its warmly hearted people.

bavaro

Enjoy the laid-back charm of this quiet resort, set on the east coast near Punta Cana. Its 22 km of beautiful soft white sand beaches are dotted with palm trees. A number of All-inclusive resorts offer a wide range of facilities and amenities; you can enjoy refreshing cocktails by the beach, enjoy a round of golf or swim with dolphins at the nearby ecological park. Water-sports enthusiasts favour this area for its excellent facilities however; it can be prone to choppy seas, particularly in the afternoons. For those who want to explore more of the country, you can organise excursions to the capital Santo Domingo and the surrounding area. While there is a range of entertainment options on offer, Bavaro is not well known for its nightlife. It is perfect for those seeking sun, sand and sea with an away-from-it-all atmosphere.

bayahibe

Bayahibe is situated on the southeast Caribbean coast of the Dominican Republic. This tiny fishing and diving village has a picturesque harbour filled with catamarans and wonderfully coloured fishing boats surrounded by vibrant green countryside that hugs the fine white sandy beaches. A Bayahibe holiday offers more of an authentic Dominican experience than many other beach resorts. You can visit a working sugarcane mill or an artists' village, explore the archaeological museum and amphitheatre, hike in the East National Park, or take a tour to the capital Santo Domingo. There are also boat excursions to nearby islands including the uninhabited Isla Catalina, named by Christopher Columbus. The village shops are filled with local handicrafts, regional rum, cigars and amber products so you can take a little piece of the Dominican Republic home with you. The area's hotels offer activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling and water sports or you can simply relax in true Dominican style and watch the world go slowly by.
