Dominican Republic Vacation Rentals

Pick a coastal vacation rental in the Dominican Republic

From Punta Cana to Las Terranas, the Dominican Republic is home to some of the Caribbean’s liveliest and most beautiful resorts. In all of these places, travelers can pick roomy vacation rentals within a short drive, cycle or walk from the ocean. Choose amenities like sun terraces, infinity pools and Jacuzzis, and be as close to or far away from the nightlife areas as you need to be.

Stay in a historic apartment rental in Santo Domingo

The buzzing capital of the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo is a fantastic place to choose a vacation home. In the center of this elegant colonial-era city, you’ll find an endless array of attractive apartments with features like en suite kitchens, plenty of sleeping space, satellite TV, high-speed internet and security protection.

Vacationing in the Dominican Republic

A wonderful nation that blends beaches, nature and urban attractions

Located just a few hundred miles from the Florida Keys, the Dominican Republic is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the Caribbean. With strong links to the USA via Dominican communities in cities like New York and LA, the country offers a huge array of activities and sights.

Fly into the Dominican Republic from all over the USA

Reaching a rental home in the Dominican Republic is incredibly easy. If you intend to base yourself in Santo Domingo, the capital’s Las Americas International Airport handles flights from New York, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta, and you can also fly into Punta Cana Airport with Delta and American Airlines.

An easy country to navigate

Getting around is easy too. A recently upgraded highway network connects the capital to Punta Cana, while daily buses services link major cities like Santo Domingo, Higuey and Santiago. With plenty of rental companies present at the country’s international airports, having your own wheels is a great option during a Dominican vacation as well.

Activities

A magical place if you love the beach

Beach resorts like Punta Cana, Bavaro, Samana, Playa Rincon, Playa Dorada and Playa Boca Chica offer a diverse collection of places to sunbathe, dive, snorkel and windsurf. There aren’t many better beach destinations.

A wonderful destination for history fans

Cities like Santiago and Santo Domingo possess some extraordinary colonial era architecture. With wars, slavery, piracy and the independence struggle – the country offers plenty of compelling stories for people who love the past.

A fine place for gourmet food lovers

Dominican cuisine is up there with Cuban and Mexican food, and there are some sublime dishes that every traveler should try, including Mangu (a kind of savory plantain hash) and La Bandera (typical beans and meat stew).

Top things to do in the Dominican Republic

1. Spend a day at Playa Rincon

Regularly ranked as the Caribbean’s finest beach, Playa Rincon is fringed with palms and has soft, white, sun-baked sand. It’s pretty much everything you’d hope a Caribbean beach could be.

2. See humpback whales

The coast of the nation’s Semana Peninsular is one of the world’s greatest whale-watching destinations. Take a cruise in March to see a massive humpback population getting together en masse.

3. Attend a tropical music festival

Dominicans love to dance, so it’s unsurprising that the country hosts some of the most exciting dance music events in the Caribbean. Head to Punta Cana in December for events like Holidaze, that bring world famous DJs and musicians to the resort.

4. Tour Santo Domingo’s Zona Colonial

Protected by UNESCO, the Zona Colonial is a beautiful place. When you wander its narrow streets, it really does feel like you are stepping through a timewarp, as you see sublime churches and impressive mansions that were home to the Dominican colonial elite.

5. Get away from it all at Eastern National Park

Another UNESCO protected area, Eastern National Park is a nature lover’s paradise. See over 100 different animal species, dive to the massive coral reef network, see manatees and sea turtles as you snorkel and witness pre-colonial art in the park’s cave systems.

The atmospheric Cuban scenes in the Godfather Part II were actually filmed in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.

Useful Information

Climate

The weather in the Dominican Republic is semi-tropical. This means that it pays to plan your trip if you want to avoid the rainy season or times when the humidity can become a little too much. For great beach weather and sightseeing conditions, the best time to go is probably between March and May. High season is just before that, so if you delay a little you can enjoy great weather and dodge the worst of the crowds.

Language

Although millions of Dominicans live in the USA, don’t expect everyone to speak perfect English as well. Sure, café staff and bar tenders will be fluent, but shop owners and people in general may take some time to understand your questions. A little Spanish can also go a long way, so don’t be afraid to use it.

Currency

Similarly, don’t count on being able to use US dollars everywhere you go. You’ll probably be able to pay with US cash in hotels and major stores, but some places will only take pesos. Don’t get caught out. Have some local currency close to hand, for emergencies.
