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.

Travel to the Dominican Republic

Amazingly, there are no fewer than seven International Airports in the Dominican Republic, receiving flights from all over the world, so depending on the exact location of resort in the Dominican Republic you are travelling to, there should be a remarkable easy transfer option. There are direct flights direct from across the UK, including Manchester (MAN), Liverpool (LIV) andLondon(LON). British Airways, Monarch and KLM all provide flights.

Beautiful holiday

5 of 5
OK, the house is very nice, gorgeous setting, lots of fruit trees and palms around(we picked some limes from a tree nearby for Cuba Libres). Yocasty is really very very helpful, arranges everything you want and tries to even get you a good deal if you want to take a boat to town, fishing trip, etc. Although the price the locals ask is a bit much. For a 4 hr fishing trip initially we were asked $200, but ended up paying $120. Jerardo, who was taking care of the house and cleaned the pool is the guy to ask to get some fresh seafood and minor supplies(rum... we run out..).We paid about$30 for two nice lobsters and three fresh fish which he cleaned for us. If you don't speak spanish, you might have some problems communicating with locals, but Yocasty is there to help. The beach is very nice, although you gotta be a little careful as the waves are strong and there are some rocks here and there. The best spot is the very far right of the beach(if you're facing the ocean). There's a bit of a break from waves and its private. If you got kids, or not a strong swimmer its the best place to go. Hike to Rincon Beach was nice(Jerardo took us there and then came back to take us back). The restaurant there was just Ok though. Lobster was good, but ocean perch wasn't all that fresh we thought. On the way there you get to see a couple of small beaches, very nice. Now on to other suggestions.. Don't go if you can't enterntain yourself. For us peace and quiet was exactly what we wanted and we'll go back as soon as we can. Bring some CD's and DVD's for evening, they only got a couple in the house and radio doesn't always pick up a station. Expect bugs and mosquitoes, so bring repellant. Bring more cash than you think is absolutely necessary, everything costs quite a bit. Try to learn at least some basics in spanish, it will help. BBQ is not what you have in N. America; you actually have to build a fire.Put EVERYTHING in the fridge, inc. bread, etc. If you don't, microscopic ants get into food. And if its ruined, you can't just run up to a corner store. DO stare at the sky at night:), its unbelievable.. and they got those bugs that glow flying around. You can request for service people to show up every second day; we did as we wanted more privacy. The town of Las Galeras is small.Italian store there is good for sandwich meat, etc. Cabs are VERY expensive. Well, altogether its a great place and my wife and I definetely recommend it.
