CHOOSE ECO – HOTELS ON THE SHORE AND SURROUNDED BY WATERFALLS
The country has strictly observed all epidemiological safety measures relating to the reception and stay of foreign tourists. However, compliance with social distancing measures contribute to the natural features and well-thought-out tourist infrastructure of the Dominican Republic.
For example, enjoying the sun and the sea, you can live right on the shore, with a minimum of neighbors nearby, in a cozy and nice eco-hotel. The Dominican Republic has many such secluded eco-resorts where you can relax in harmony and silence.
Luxury beach La Cueva in the province of Pedernales has a charming resort Eco del Mar with glamping and stay at the stylish eco-lodges.
Eco-lodges in the trees and waterfalls exist in Barahona. The hotel Platón Ecolodge guests live in spacious wooden houses, equipped with everything necessary. “Pure magic” guests called the rest in the mini-village Unique Eco Hotel by the beach of El Valle to Samana. In the mornings, they wake up to the singing of birds, and in the evenings, they watch the sunsets surrounded by hundreds of fireflies.
You can literally live among the trees at the Dominican Tree House, which is also located on Samana. Everything is simple here, but the more valuable is the rest: wooden houses surrounded by the jungle, free bike rental, a beach two minutes’ walk away, where freshly caught grilled fish is served.
Experience new emotions among waterfalls, water cascades and terraces can be to stay at Paraíso Caño Hondo in the province of Hato Mayor.
By the way, there is another reason to come to this hotel: in this region there is the Museum of Whales, where they will tell about everything that is connected with life of these amazing animals, which can be observed from here, from January to March.
LIVE IN A CAMPING IN THE MOUNTAINS AND BURN IN THE BEST BEACH IN THE WORLD
In Dominican Republic, there are many unspoiled natural places where camping is possible.
For example, this accommodation option can be found in the mountains of the Valle Nuevo National Park (Parque Nacional Valle Nuevo). There is an eco-lodge Villa Pajón, where you can stay for the night. Neat and clean the houses are in the middle of the woods, drowning in flowers, hummingbirds flitting around them.
Another route for the departure of nature – a mountain forest Cachote (El Cachote). In a protected natural area Cachote at an altitude of 1097 m above sea level is a small village.
In addition, there are special routes for lovers of bird watching. In Cachota, there is a place to sleep comfortably: this is the Canto del Jilguero mini-hotel, consisting of only two houses.
And in the east of the Samana Peninsula is the Rincon Beach, which is included in the TOP 10 most beautiful beaches in the world according to Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
RIDING BUGGY AND CAPTURE SPEED ON ZIPLINE
Those who prefer adrenaline, will appreciate the excursions on the buggy, the epicenter of which is traditionally Punta Cana. Currently, Safari, emotions high and exciting way to experience the jungle and beaches of the region.
By the way, the buggy is a reason for the whole family to “ride”. You can rent a four-seater family buggy, where it will be safe for the youngest excursionists. On board “adopted” children older than five years.
In Dominican Republic, this attraction for children and adults can be found in several nature parks. There are no age restrictions, as such, the tourist simply has to be from 120 cm tall and weigh up to 120 kg.
But if you want to choose the “most-most” route, you should go to the Samana Peninsula to fly at impressive speed at an altitude of 122 meters above the mountain landscape of the hills of El Valle.
WALKING IN THE COLONIAL CITY
For hikers and fans of historical sites, we recommend visiting Santo Domingo and the Colonial City, in particular the Colonial City.
There are many old mansions and buildings, atmospheric streets, museums and restaurants. You can come here many times, and on each trip to discover something new.
For example, sophisticated tourists should visit a tobacco factory or a chocolate museum, where they can buy real chocolate and learn all the details of making cocoa. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Santo Domingo and can be in movement, by renting a bike.
