Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic, located on the island of Hispaniola, shines like a diamond sparkling in the sun. The many facets of this beautiful destination—gorgeous beaches, spectacular seaside golf courses, all-inclusive resorts, lively nightlife—make it an exceptional choice for group travel. And with near-perfect weather year-round, there’s no such thing as an off-season in this idyllic paradise.

Key Locations

  • Punta Cana
  • La Romana
  • Santo Domingo
Activity options are varied and non-stop. If your group event calls for relaxing on a beautiful beach or playing a little golf, the turquoise waters along the country’s eastern tip are an ideal setting. If you’d like a shadier and more peaceful natural experience, take a trip inland to experience the Armando Bermúdez National Park, a model for ecotourism that hosts one of the greatest biodiversities on the island. Visitors can go horseback riding, enjoy a picnic, or take a guided hike along the rugged trails lined by indigenous flora including Hispaniola pines and West Indies mahogany.
The Dominican Republic was the first European settlement in the Americas and its roots are firmly planted in its Spanish origins. The people, charming and welcoming, form a colorfully diverse tapestry with the blended heritage of Spanish, French, Haitian, and African influences combining to create a unique culture. The cuisine here is simple, a combination of its blended heritage that features rice, beans, beautifully spiced stews, plantains, and fish.
The Dominican Republic has something to offer everyone with world-class restaurants and plenty of active nightlife. Music and dance permeate the culture here and you’ll hear its lively beat everywhere you go. With its syncopated rhythm, the music provides the beat and swagger for the country’s national dances: the merengue and the horchata. Let the locals teach you how to dance. And, if you already know how, you will have no shortage of dance partners.
