The Dominican Republic is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Caribbean, largely because it has the largest all-inclusive resort industry in the world. It is about the size of Scotland, but contains no less than seven international airports. It shares Hispaniola, the second largest island in the Caribbean, with its smaller neighbour, Haiti. Its capital, Santo Domingo, is the oldest city in the Americas, a cosmopolitan city with much of historic interest and lively nights.
And if all you want is a stretch of powdery sand studded with palm trees, a full choice of water sports and the chance to be waited on hand and foot, you can’t do much better than to visit the Dominican Republic. Its convenient, all-inclusive packages fit every budget.
