Marine Life Experience Cayo Levantado and Playa Rincon are among the many other attractions that should be on every traveler's to-do list.
If the weather isn't ideal, fear not, the Dominican Republic offers a wide range of history museums, guaranteed to keep you happily occupied. Spirituality is a fascinating part of every community's make-up, so be sure spend a little time in the area's many temples and other places of worship.
If your idea of a great holiday is maxing-out your heart rate in wild places, then join one of the many hiking or horse riding trips this region has to offer. If the sun is shining while you are here, make the most of local water activities. Sea kayaking and wind surfing are just two of the well-established watersports here.
When it is time to depart from this unique place, say farewell the way locals do, with a hearty "Adiós."
