Experience the giants of the sea
The hidden caves and coves of the Dominican Republic are home to clusters of migrating humpback whales and other wonderous sea creatures. Take a boat from the port of La Romana and dive beneath the depths to experience the size and beauty of these animals up close and personal. Tours run from January to mid-March and come alive with the song and dance from the migrating whales.
A small city with a mighty heart
Home to a picture-postcard coastline as well as award-winning and world-class golf courses, La Romana is the Dominican Republic’s seventh largest city, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in diversity. Fields of sugar canes, white sandy beaches and rainforests all make up the surrounding areas, whilst the offshore islands of Saona and Catalinita are home to turtle-filled caves and an abundance of marine life.
The highs and lows beyond the capital
Explore out of the capital and you will see that the rest of the Dominican Republic is rural and agricultural. Drive along the dusty roads and you will see cows and horses grazing on the roadside, as well as fresh produce growing in abundance. Venture inland to experience the rivers that meander their way through green jungles and glistening waterfalls.
A festival of life
Although they love their down time, the people of the Dominican Republic know how to party and carnival and festival celebrations take place all year round. Peek through these cultural windows and immerse yourself in the elaborate celebrations that this spectacular country is prominent for.
