Exciting activities are in store on Dominican Republic holidays. An action-packed mix of safari, underwater, and extreme sports adventures sends travellers off to a different kind of high in this nation on the island of Hispaniola.
Learn about how Dominicans live and discover the country on an outback safari tour. Venture to the East Coast and visit the bustling towns of Bayahibe, La Romana, Bavaro, Punta Cana, and Uvero Alto. Have a cup of freshly made coffee in the home of a Dominican family; visit a chocolate or coffee plantation; or shop at a rum shack. Head for the beaches and hop on a boogie board, or simply enjoy a cocktail under the Caribbean sunshine.
Head to the North Coast and explore Luperon, Puerto Plata, Hacienda Resorts, RIU Hotels, Cofresi, Cabarete, Sosua, and Playa Grande. Swim in crystal clear waters of one of the rivers, or see native animals such as crocodiles, iguanas, and turtles at the mini ranch by the riverside.
The adrenalin starts pumping on a Dominican Republic holiday while sliding down the zip line of Bavaro. “Fly” across the picturesque Anamuya Pond, and unravel the mystery of Taino Anamuya Mountains. Farallon Zip-Lines Adventure provides tourists with canopy guides and allow them to “soar” from one platform to another while suspended on air with steel cables, the longest one at 250 metres. The adventure consists of 11 platforms and ten zip lines hanging within a 1,600-metre mountain range.
Explore the Dominican Republic’s other treasures at Manati Park in Bavaro-Punta Cana, a theme park filled with the country’s fantastic flora and fauna. Take a dip with the lovely dolphins in the pool, under the close supervision of the park’s staff. Interact with the park’s other fascinating creatures: flamingos, sea lions, tropical birds, and snakes. Various animal shows are also available, showcasing parrots performing pirouettes, horses dancing and performing equestrian exercises, and dolphins doing acrobatic tricks in and out of the water. Nine shows are featured in the park daily, so tourists can choose to drop by the park any time they fancy.
