Inclusive Resorts in the Dominican Republic

Inclusive Resorts in the Dominican Republic
Imagine lounging with a pina colada under a palm canopy on the soft Caribbean sand while watching the tranquil clear waters splash on the shore. You can vacation with all of the luxuries at your fingertips at a price your pocketbook will be grateful for at an inclusive resort. The Dominican Republic is probably best known for package deals that include entertainment, travel costs, accommodations, gourmet food and exclusive access to the beach.

Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata provides a fun blend between relaxing beach-inclusive resorts and the hustle and bustle of an authentic Dominican town. Stepping into "Playa Dorada," or the Gold Coast, offers a quiet haven and a piece of tropical paradise. To explore Dominican cultural gems, simply take a tour a few minutes out of the inclusive hotel circuit. You can swim with dolphins at Ocean World, make a few bucks at the casinos and dance merengue at any of the numerous discoteques. Stroll along the promenade in downtown Puerto Plata to share the beauty of the mystical Caribbean ocean with locals.

Ride a horse down the sandy beach, indulge in a massage, taste a Cuba Libre and immerse in Dominican culture at the Iberostar Costa Dorada. Iberostar International Hotel chains are synonomous with economic luxury, and this hotel exemplifies the company's name.

Samana is best known as a charming European hamlet among the tropical and Latin cultures.

Satisfy your dreams of staying on a deserted island--with upgraded modern-day comforts.

Enjoy gourmet cuisines (sushi, paella, gnocci or the Dominican rice and beans), tropical beverages (Cuba Libre and pina coladas) and world-class entertainment at the Punta Cana Princess.
