2 weeks Dominican Republic roundtrip

The Dominican Republic is a dreamlike island state which could have come from a picture book and a symbol for exotic holiday dreams. Experience some of the most popular natural beauties and destinations of the island on this exclusive ‘Dominican Republic Roundtrip’.

UNESCO World Heritage Santo Domingo

After relaxing beach days and a stay on the lonely island of Saona, a visit to the capital Santo Domingo is on the agenda. The city offers a fabulous mix of 16th century houses, impressing late medieval palaces and fortresses. The colonial city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The sightseeing programme includes various sights and city walks through the old town, including the Parque Colón where the statue of Christopher Columbus and the Alcazár de Colón Palace are located. In addition, the ‘Parque Nacional Tres Ojos’ with its four freshwater lagoons will also be visited.

Exploring the Samaná Peninsula

During your excursions in Samaná you will discover all the natural beauties of the peninsula such as the El Limón waterfall. This has a height of over 50 metres and is surrounded by lush vegetation. It consists of three smaller waterfalls that plunge from a height of 55 metres into a natural pool where you can enjoy a cool bath in the middle of the jungle.

National Park Los Haitises and Bacardi Island

The boat tour to the National Park “Los Haitises” takes you to the coastal zone of the more than 200 km² nature reserve. A huge green mangrove belt stretches along the coast and over 50 small islands form a labyrinth of waterways.

An excursion to the Cayo Levantado, also called “Bacardi Island”, is also part of the program. The two kilometre long and about 500 metre wide island is a nature reserve and surrounded by a light to turquoise blue sea. In combination with the gorgeous white sandy beaches, the island offers a breathtaking scenery.
