Discover Dominican Republic Resort Destinations
With internationally known destinations — Cap Cana, La Romana, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Uvero Alto and Macao Beach — our all-inclusive Dominican Republic resorts have picture-perfect beaches and every kind of activity and entertainment imaginable. The Dominican Republic is also the #1 destination for golf in the Caribbean and Latin America. This vacation is tailor-made for every preference.
On the far eastern tip of the island, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea, our all-inclusive Cap Cana resorts sit in a master-planned community next to a 130-slip marina is the epitome of luxury. Imagine you’re a PGA champion on Jack Nicklaus’ Punta Espada Golf Course, where the Caribbean views are spectacular. Watch a polo match. Charter a fishing trip at Cap Cana’s yacht marina, which hosts world-famous fishing tournaments. Explore limestone caverns and cenotes in Scape Park.
Once a sleepy town surrounded by sugarcane fields, La Romana draws a jet-set crowd to Playa Bayahibe and Playa Dominicus on the DR’s southeast coast.
From the docks of Bayahibe, grab a boat to the offshore reef system with some of the islands’ best diving and snorkeling. Adjacent Parque Nacional del Este is home to 112 species of birds, nesting sea turtles, manatees and bottlenose dolphins. And of course, the golf is grand on cliff-side fairways, where the sea views extend to the horizon.
Home to the first fort built in the New World, Puerto Plata is the hub for 60 miles of Atlantic beaches, including laidback towns and world-famous wind surfing and kiteboarding. Family-friendly Playa Dorada has an 18-hole golf course, shopping mall, restaurants, dance clubs, casinos and excursion options. A stroll along Puerto Plata’s oceanfront promenade is a great way to end an afternoon of sightseeing.
The 20-mile sweep of powdery, white sand and swaying palms are known as the Coconut Coast. It rarely rains during the day and the activities and entertainment near our Punta Cana resorts are non-stop. Snorkel, kayak, play beach volleyball. Swim with the stars on Saona Island. After dark, head for a casino or a concert. Can we just agree to call it heaven?
Far from the hustle and bustle of Bávaro, Uvero Alto is a secluded beach in northern Punta Cana. The palm-studded, golden sand beach offers calm waters and coral reefs. Want to skip the sand? Swim-up bars, swim out suites, and plenty of pools can keep you cool at our all-inclusive luxury resorts.
Located on the northeastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Playa Macao has been labeled one of the Caribbean’s top beaches by UNESCO thanks to its pristine sand and turquoise waters. Popular amongst adventure-seekers, this beautiful area 20 minutes north of Bávaro Beach is the ultimate destination for surfers and those looking to ride four wheelers.
