A hop, skip, and a jump away from Jamaica is its vibrant Caribbean cousin, the Dominican Republic (DR).

Beyond the beach lies energetic cities that groove to the rhythm of meringue deep into the night, and a lush jungle landscape filled with winding rivers and refreshing waterfalls. With activities that range from off-roading thrills and reef hopping by speedboat, to massages on the beach and sunny days on world-class golf courses, a last-minute vacation to the DR ensures ultimate adventure and relaxation.
