Santo Domingo
Whether you are looking for adventure, an exciting nightlife, or plenty of watersports, the Dominican Republic has it all. The island's capital city Santo Domingo is brimming with life and culture. Wandering through the city, you are likely to see old men playing dominos while the noise of traffic and upbeat merengue music pulse in the background. Within the city, the Zona Colonial is the historical district where you can find the Parque Colón and o­ne of the oldest churches in the New World. At night, the city's pace quickens even more as young people pack the many clubs and bars in the city's nightlife district.

Once you leave Santo Domingo, the entire pace of the country changes. The center of the Dominican Republic is full of huge sugar plantations and tiny villages. o­n the coastline, you will find the gorgeous beaches that the country is famous for, as well as countless world-class hotels and all-inclusive resorts.

Cabarete is o­ne of the largest tourist beach towns where people do almost every water sport under the sun from surfing to kiteboarding. The wind and waves are great almost year-round, and Cabarete is also ideally located if you want to spend some time exploring the rest of the beautiful coastline this part of the island has to offer.

Finally, don't miss the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The park is a Unesco World Heritage site that takes up a huge chunk of the southern half of the island. This part of the Dominican Republic is covered with lush rainforests. Hike through the park's cloud forests and visit sites such as Middleham Falls, Boeri Lake and Boiling Lake, which is actually volcanically active with steam pouring through vents and copious mudpots surrounding the lake.
