Places to go

Places to go:

Many visitors head directly for beachfront resorts, and there’s much at these vacation retreats to admire.
The southeastern part of the country probably has the loveliest all-inclusive resort zones, Bávaro and Punta Cana, both holding pristine coastline stretching for kilometres on end.

Of course, you don’t have to base yourself in a resort to visit the DR’s most popular sights, and there are plenty of opportunities for independent travellers to range further afield too.
