The Dominican Republic(DR): ...a land of contrast

Enjoy Dominican Republic with Signature Vacations!

The Dominican Republic (DR) is a land of contrasts – the physical kind, like the highest peak and the lowest point in the Caribbean, and the more metaphorical kind, like that between the urban street life of Santo Domingo and the rural villages only a short drive away. Santo Domingo, or 'La Capital' as it's typically called, is to Dominicans what New York is to Americans, a collage of cultures; or what Havana is to Cubans, a vibrant beating heart that fuels the entire country. It's also a living museum, offering the sight of New World firsts scattered around the charming cobblestone streets of the Zona Colonial.

The sun-soaked north coast of the Dominican Republic delivers a great vacation at a price sure to please Canadians! Always one of our most popular destinations, it combines golden beaches, casinos, golf, and infectious Dominican merengue music.

Imagine 35 kilometres of pearl-white soft sand beaches, dotted with towering palm trees. Is this paradise, or is it Punta Cana? It's both and it's the Dominican Republic's answer to your dreams of South Seas tranquility.

The DR is also famous for the large all-inclusive resorts that dominate much of the country's prime beachfront real estate. However, the result is less like the high-rise congestion of Cancun or Miami and more like low-slung retirement communities, albeit ones populated by families, couples and singles of all ages looking for a hassle-free holiday. Beyond the gated luxury enclaves, the roads lead inland past vast sugar plantations and through small villages. To get away from the get-away, travelers head to the Península de Samaná, where the European vibe is as strong as an espresso, and where escape is the operative word. Cabarete on the North Coast has winds which draw adrenaline junkies from around the world. And for the anti-Caribbean experience head to the popular mountain retreats of Jarabacoa and Constanza – places where bathing suits are out and sweaters are in.
