The Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean island, with long stretches of coastline that are home to 250 miles of some of the world's most beautiful beaches, bordering the Atlantic Ocean in the north and the Caribbean Sea in the south, against a lush mountain backdrop.
From sunbathing to whale watching, it may tick all the boxes you would expect from the Caribbean, but is also one of its most diverse islands, with a wealth of natural wonders and a rich history and culture. Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, take in a slice of the island's centuries of history by visiting the ruins of this legendary explorer's home in Puerto Plata, strolling through the colonial streets of the capital, Santo Domingo, venturing into cathedrals and shrines and dancing to the irresistible beat of the merengue.
