Nestled in the heart of the Carribean, the Dominican Republic is one of those paradise travel destinations that we all dream of getting away to in order to escape the pressures of everyday life. Though mention of the Carribean may conjure up images of beaches, the Dominican Republic has a lot more to offer. This is the most diverse landscape in the area and contains deserts, mountain ranges and pristine beaches within its grasp.
Santa Domingo is the largest city in the Dominican Republic and with its expansive historic quarter, is a good place to start in order to obtain an insight into the history of the area. With old buildings and archealogical sites that date all the way back to the Middle Ages, Santa Domingo's historic quarter is a fascinating place to spend an afternoon. This is the oldest European settlement on the American continent and Spanish-influenced cathedrals, churches and castles are here waiting to be explored, quite unlike anything you may expect to find in this part of the globe.
If you're traveling to the Dominican Republic between the months of December and March, consider stopping by Samana -- a beautiful coastal area where it's possible to watch majestic whales from boat tours as they travel along their migration routes. Those who purely want to relax, can get a tan and sip a cocktail or eight will enjoy the pristine sandy beaches of Bayahibe and Sosua.
The best time to travel to the Dominican Republic is during the winter and between the months of December to March.
