The Dominican Republic

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the north and the Caribbean Sea on the south, our lush
tropical island paradise boasts nearly 1,000 miles (1,609 km) of coastline, 250 miles (402 km) of
the world’s top beaches, magnificent resorts and hotels, and a variety of sports, recreation, and
entertainment options. Here you can dance to the pulse pounding thrill of the merengue, renew in
our luxurious and diverse places to stay, explore ancient relics of centuries past, delight in
delicious Dominican food or enjoy ecotourism adventures in our magnificent national parks,
mountain ranges, rivers, and beaches.

The Dominican Republic’s first inhabitants left behind signs of their presence in numerous
underground caverns found across the country, where they once took refuge or performed rituals.
Today, hiking into these mysterious chambers, marked with petroglyphs and pictographs, is a
thrilling experience. From easy entry to Indiana Jones-style expeditions, there’s a cave to suit
everyone. Southeast, Cotubanamá National Park reveals caves punctuated with emerald
freshwater lagoons.

Locals and tourists enjoy the variety of recreational parks in the country, designed to blend in
with the surrounding nature. Punta Cana hosts the largest selection, offering activities such as
cave exploration, ziplining, and swimming in cenotes at Scape Park, bungee jumping, and
Segway tours at Bávaro Adventure Park, and immersing yourself in the history of Hidden
Realms at Katmandu, a theme park for the whole family. In Puerto Plata, Ocean World
Adventure Park is the ideal place for children, who can enjoy getting close to dolphins, seals, and
jumping from trampolines into the pool, while Fun City is the go-to place for go-karts. In Santo
Domingo, Plaza Juan Barón offers go-karts for children and a playground area at Güibia Beach.
