Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Dominican Republic your home away from home

The Dominican Republic consists of three quarters of the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, the other third being the Republic of Haiti. It lies just east of Cuba and Jamaica, and although it is an unbelievable holiday destination with endless entertainment and beaches, it is little known to many British tourists. Ant travel guide to the Dominican Republic will tell you that this is an impressive country surrounded by beautiful, white sand beaches and filled with dramatic mountain ranges, spectacular waterfalls and huge saltwater lakes teeming with exotic wildlife. However, there is far more information about the Dominican Republic worth knowing.

Things to do on holiday in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has more than 800 miles of diverse coastline, much of it lined with glorious beaches. However, behind these beaches lies everything from tropical rainforests to deserts. The reliable winds and strong swells which hit the island make it an absolute haven for water sports, especially windsurfing, body boarding, surfing and kite-boarding. Beyond the break, Dominican Republic holidays are famous for their scuba diving and deep sea fishing prowess, and people flock to self catering villas in the Dominican Republic to take advantage of the exquisite possibilities for both.

You may be surprised to hear that the golf courses of the Dominican Republic have been the favoured courses for generations of American Presidents. The courses have often been designed by world champion golfers like Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player to name a few.

Dominican Republic holidays are also becoming famous for their adventures. Helicopter rides, 4x4s, caving, white water rafting, whale watching, mountain biking and sea kayaking are becoming huge attractions on the island, especially for family holidays to the Dominican Republic, as there are a huge number of things to do.

Places to holiday in the Dominican Republic

The North Coast of the Dominican Republic is the best place to enjoy the excellent water sports conditions on the island. Windsurfing and kite-boarding World Championships are often held on this coastline and the beaches are pretty impressive too. The North Coast is also one of the favourite places for golfers to visit in the Dominican Republic too.

Punta Cana is a resort on the far eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. Golden beach holidays are the order of the day from a holiday rental in Punta Cana, almost all of which look out across the stunning turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

Weather in the Dominican Republic

There is never a poor time for a family holiday on the golden beaches of the Dominican Republic. The tropical climate of the island means that average temperatures in the coldest month, January are still above 23°C and 27°C in July, the warmest month. Daily temperatures climb into the mid 30’s (°C), which is why the beaches are such a huge asset for the resorts of the Dominican Republic. During the week before Easter, (Semana Santa), many water sports and activities are banned.
