Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic is regarded as an inexpensive, 'no-frills' introduction to the Caribbean with three international airports and a spectacular coastline.

The main resorts are the hotels themselves around which a few shops and unsophisticated bars have sprung up.

It's worth noting that stomach upsets among tourists are common and until hygiene standards can be relied on, the wise traveller will rarely risk a meal outside their hotel. Seek local advice from your tour operator.

Local transport is unreliable and though car hire is available it's best to invest in a good map because direction signs are rare.

Many roads would be considered unsafe in more developed countries.

Note: Children under the age of 13 are subject to specific rules for visiting the Dominican Republic; if the child is travelling with only one parent, notorised consent must be obtained from the other. If the child is travelling without either of their parents, notorised permission must be obtained from both parents. Anyone failing to provide the correct documentation may be refused entry.

Language: Mainly Spanish.

Climate: Tropical. Hurricane season between June and November. Rainy season from May to August and between November and December

Humidity is at its highest from August to October.

Tip: It may sound twee but take an umbrella during the rainy season and a torch for the power cuts you're bound to experience.

Currency: Dominican Peso.

Flight Time from UK: Approx 9� hours

Time Difference: 4 hours behind GMT.

Excursions:

  • The Domican Republic's  humpback whale-watching season begins each January when the huge creatures visit the Bay of Samana, on the country's northeast coast. The annual event attracts more than 40,000 tourists and many take a boat ride to get a closer look.

  • White water rafting in the mountains. Exhilarating few hours for swimmers only.

  • Dolphin and whale watching cruises. The humpback whale mating season runs from January to March and is the only chance to see these awesome creatures.

  • Scuba diving. Many resorts have coral reefs close to the shoreline and the opportunity is worth taking to see the beautiful sea life.

  • Bird watching is not just for the 'twitchers'. Take binoculars.
