Dominican Republic

Step back in time with a visit to the Colonial Zone in the Dominican Republic; then immerse yourself in real Latin culture for an unforgettable vacation adventure.

The Dominican Republic is a country within a country. The DR is as proud of its history as the mother of a newborn, with the top spot being held by the Zona Colonial (Colonial Zone) in the country's capital, Santo Domingo – the oldest continuously inhabited European established settlement in the Americas. Day or night, expect to spend a little bit more and dress a lot classier for night-time fun. There is no better example of old-world charm in a modern setting than this. DR is not just a beautiful country; it is also a land with much baseball and untouched natural beauty. The country’s beaches are some of the best in the Caribbean, bordered by miles of some of the most scenic natural vistas anywhere. With sixty-seven protected areas, there is no shortage of sites to visit if you want to take in the local flora and fauna. The country has a diverse ecosystem with rainforests, deserts, and the highest mountain range in the Caribbean, Pico Duarte, at 10,414 feet, as well as the lowest point, Lake Enriquillo, at 148 feet below sea level. The DR is not all glitz and glamour.
