Dominican Republic Cruises
Diverse, colourful, and with a fun dash of Calypso rhythms, the Dominican Republic is not your typical Caribbean island. The island does possess those white sandy beaches with dazzling blue waters akin to its neighbours, but the real beauty lies in its diverse landscape. Tropical rainforests, mountain alpines, desert lands and mangrove swamps make up the Dominican Republic’s lush environment and as such, has become an increasingly popular destination choice for many nature enthusiasts and hikers.
For culture lovers, the islands capital Santo Domingo is a must see. The oldest European city in the world, its architecture dates back to its Spanish colonial past and offers an array of historical buildings, ancient churches and cobbled streets that are perfect to explore on an afternoon stroll.
A modern city following its recent rejuvenation, Santo Domingo attracts visitor every year to its stylish restaurants, designer stores and enriching museums. However, for many, the city’s main draw is its buzzing nightlife, which offers cruise visitors a plethora of hip bars and funky clubs that fill the dance floors with soulful Caribbean music till early hours of the morning.
During the day, the Dominican Republic offers many places to explore such as picturesque local fishing villages and national parks. There are also many water sports activities available, including excellent opportunities for scuba diving around some of the islands historic ship wrecks.
