The Beaches...

Columbus found the Dominican Republic on his very first voyage to the New World. He said it was, "the most beautiful island in the world"!

The beaches in the Dominican Republic are unspoiled Caribbean jewels that sparkle in the island sun. The country boasts almost 800 miles of coastline, featuring some of the most stunning sands in the Caribbean.

Whale Watching...

Samaná Bay is where the action takes place for this exciting nature excursion. Depending on your location, most tours depart very early in the morning to ensure you get to Samaná in plenty of time to enjoy a great day. Each January through March, more than 10,000 incredible Humpback whales of the North Atlantic population, return to the waters surrounding the Dominican Republic to mate and breed. Marine guides will narrate your boat excursion, explaining mating and breeding information about the whales and their behavior. Witnessing these magnificent creatures, the most active of all whales, is definitely an experience of a lifetime.


Music is very important in the Dominican way of life. It is said that Dominican children can dance before they can walk. Everywhere you go in the country can be heard some type of music. Be it Merengue, Bachata, Salsa or Raggaeton,; the sounds so vibrant, are indicative of the way of life in the Domincan.
