The Caribbean Sea
On the southern coast of the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean Sea is the most popular area to visit as a day tour.
Enjoy the calm sea and its lagoons on a boat trip.
From the town of Bayahibe, boats take you to Saona Island, also known as the ‘heaven on earth’!
The Dominican Republic has much more than just heavenly beaches. Its mountain side and its tropical flora offer generous conditions for agriculture.
The people will proudly welcome you in their diverse plantations for a tasting of their local products such as coffee, cocoa and tropical fruits.
Take advantage of your holidays in Dominican Republic to improve your bargaining skills. Dominicans have a reputation to be excellent sales people and you quickly get caught up in the game. Popular purchases are native paintings of Taino’s art, brown rum, wood sculptures and much more.
Don’t forget to buy jewelry made with semiprecious stones: Amber and Larimar. The Dominican Republic is the only country in the world to produce Larimar, a magnificent blue stone found in mines on the country’s southern coast.
