About This Trip

The Dominican Republic is an island nation of outstanding natural beauty. With incredibly diverse landscapes the island is begging to be explored in depth. With a host of delightful luxury accommodation, we have created a feast for the senses as you go much further than most visitors to the island. 

 

To be honest, it is easy to see why people come to the Dominican Republic and never leave the sleepy beaches and thriving nightlife of Punta Cana. Unbelievably beautiful, tranquil when you need it to be and all action when you want it, Punta Cana is a dream destination. As you laze on the perfect beach, at the front of your 5-star resort, you will understand why many people don’t move further than this. We have ensured you have enough time to chill here, but we want you to get off the beaten track, to explore the other wonders this amazing island has to offer. 

 

With time in the thriving, vibrant capital of Santo Domingo and a trip to the small exclusive resort of Balconies del Atlantico, you will overnight in some of the most beautiful accommodations in the country. From these luxurious bases, you will head out and explore the raw beauty of the Dominican Republic, from towering waterfalls with cooling pools, to tiny remote islands, some like an idyllic shipwreck island and others with unique little resorts. You will explore the local rum, cigars, coffee and chocolate, seeing how they fuel the local economy and enjoying the samples. 

 

Relax, explore and discover this incredible island paradise and fall in love with the rhythm of the Dominican Republic.

highlights

For most people, the Dominican Republic is just Punta Cana. A trip to the Dominican Republic invariably involves chilling on a world-class beach, sipping a rum cocktail and little else. Don’t worry, we have built plenty of time in for this kind of thing, as it would be criminal not to spend some time just soaking in paradise, but we wanted to create a tour that went beyond the surface. A trip that explored more of the country, its people, its customs and its phenomenal local produce. 

 

We added time in Santo Domingo, the capital city, that many tourists choose to ignore. This is one of the most vibrant cities on earth, with merengue blasting out from corner shops, people living life on the streets and one of the most delightful old-towns that almost makes you forget you are in the Caribbean. We also added time on the Atlantic Coast, in the exclusive Balconies del Atlantico. In between you will be exploring a couple of the tiny islands off the coast, exploring in deep jungle and visiting many of the island's artisan producers to sample their wares. Go beyond the beaches on this fascinating tour. 


location

The joy of this trip is its multiple locations, taking you on a tour to showcase the very best of the Dominican Republic. You will start by being collected from the airport in Punta Cana and being transferred to your luxurious resort. After three days here you are then taken down to the spectacular capital of Santo Domingo for one night before heading up to the Atlantic coast for a couple of nights at the unique Balconies del Atlantico Resort. Then it is a transfer back to the airport to catch your onward flight.
