Arriving in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is in the eastern part of the island of Hispaniola, with Haiti in the west. There are several international airports that serve the island, so getting cheap flights to the Dominican Republic should be no problem. In the east, the Punta Cana International Airport is one of the busiest in the whole Caribbean region. The Santa Domingo Airport is situated near the capital on the south coast of the country. In Punta Cana the resorts provide shuttle buses to take tourists to and from the airport and also around the various resorts there. In the rest of the country, there are not hotel shuttles so your best bet is probably a taxi, or if you prefer to drive yourself you can rent a car.

Getting Around the Dominican Republic

There are several different public transportation options available after your flights to the Dominican Republic have landed. There is a bus service, with some routes operated by government-owned companies such as the Oficina Metropolitana de Servicios de Autobuses, and others run by private companies. Often these are long-haul buses and are usually very well equipped and comfortable to travel in, such as the service run by Caribe Tour. The gua-guas however, are the traditional type of transportation in the country.

Main Attractions in the Dominican Republic

The beaches of the Dominican Republic are the main attraction for the tourist industry. In Punta Cana, there are several well-developed resorts next to the sandy white beaches and beautiful crystal clear waters. There are several tour companies that organize boat trips around the island such as Pro Excursions in Bayahibe. These allow you to see more of the island and often stop for swimming and snorkeling among the coral reefs. Scuba diving is another very popular activity on the island. There are also quite a few horse-riding stables, such as Rancho Lorilar, that allow you to see the real Dominican countryside after your Dominican Republic flights have brought you to this beautiful nation.

Shopping and Dining in the Dominican Republic

The best shopping is in the capital Santo Domingo. In the colonial district of the city there is an outdoor mall called El Conde Street, which is several blocks long. There are many places to buy souvenirs of your trip, including a good cigar shop and lots of inexpensive but high-quality clothes shops. There are good restaurants in all parts of the country. The La Parrillada Steak House in Puerto Plata serves excellent steaks as well as other dishes. After your trip to this beautiful and relaxing country, you will want to buy another airfare to the Dominican Republic.
