Maybe you envision beautiful beaches alongside crystal clear waters, or perhaps you imagine scenic mountain overlooks. Of course, you probably also imagine a lengthy plane ride across the ocean and crowds of like-minded tourists seeking out the same sights that you went all that way to see. In the end, most of these trips end up not being so relaxing after all..
However, there is a place, just a little over 750 miles southeast of Florida, where you can dine at gourmet restaurants, visit wildlife sanctuaries, play on first-class golf courses, or simply soak in the sun in the sun-drenched sand.
The Dominican Republic is the perfect destination for your next exotic vacation. The island nation offers warm weather all-year round and, at costs just a fraction of the price of a trip to Europe.

The country's largest growing industry is that of tourism and there are thousands of hotel rooms along the nation's 900 miles of beaches just waiting for you to stop on in and stay a while. These DR beaches are one of the most exotic vacations in the Caribbean.
Plus, if you come for a visit from October to December, you can even take in a game at one of the Dominican Professional Baseball League's six stadiums. Who knows? You might get to see the next Albert Pujols before he takes America by storm.
Whether it's the bustling city life of Santo Domingo, or the surging surf of Cabarete, you can find many parts of the Dominican Republic that suits your personality.
