Four Reasons Why We Love The Dominican Republic
When you think of a beach vacation, what comes to mind? If refreshing blue water, glistening sand, and an ice-cold drink in your hand are the first things you think of, then the Dominican Republic is where you want to be. But let’s be honest; we’d be crazy to limit your beach getaway to just those few (amazing) things. Whether you prefer to sprawl out and spend the day relaxing, practice your golf game at a championship course, treat yourself to a pampering spa treatment, or enjoy an out-of-this world meal with your family, this Caribbean destination will offer everything needed for that memorable trip to paradise.
The beaches are incredible
The Dominican Republic is well-known for its amazing beaches, which is why it’s a destination that ranks high on our list of tropical getaways. Miles of palm studded white sand mixed with the sound of rolling waves help to set the stage for your ultimate beach bliss. Slip away to a few of our favorite spots – like Playa Blanca, Bavaro, and Macao Beach – and enjoy the beach your way.
Adventure is abundant in Punta Cana
There’s more to Punta Cana than the beaches, although they are pretty much the stuff dreams are made of. While you’re here though, you may want to see what Punta Cana is truly all about. From catamarans and marinariums to ziplining and horseback riding, you can really experience both land and sea. Go by yourself, with your friends, or even take the kids along. There’s something for everyone to enjoy here!
History and culture await in La Romana
Calling all culture buffs! A visit to La Romana is an absolute must if you love to explore and learn. Head over to the re-created Mediterranean Village of Altos de Chavon and enjoy an afternoon full of performances, shopping, dining, and more. Nearby, the Cuevas de la Maravillas, otherwise known as the “Caves of Wonder”, feature ancient Taino paintings from thousands of years ago.
The “Amber Coast” is as exciting as it is beautiful
There’s nothing like a getaway to Puerto Plata, where beautifully unspoiled beaches lead to shimmering amber sands, perfect for forgetting your troubles and getting lost in a good book. If you’re on the adventurous side, kite surfing and windsurfing are great ways to have some fun in the sun. Make your way to Playa Dorada, Confresi, or Playa Mariposa and enjoy watersports to your heart’s content.
The Dominican Republic appeals to every traveler, especially when it comes to fun and excitement. Spend your days whale watching, surfing, playing a game of golf, or simply take some time decompressing on the beach. The choice is yours! The only question is: Which Dominican gem will you be visiting first?

Quintana Roo’s New Tourism Tax
On April 1, international travelers visiting Quintana Roo will be required to pay a new tourism tax. According to Mexico News Daily, travelers will pay $11 to visit popular destinations across the state like Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel.
The payment is required for all international visitors over 15 years old. Travelers can expect to pay the new tax electronically while booking their trip, during their stay or upon exiting the state via a new website called Visitax (which does not seem to be live as of this article publishing). Additionally, there is an option to pay in cash at terminals in airports. “It’s expected to be an agile and simple transaction that won’t complicate visitors’ stay,” said Rodrigo Diaz, director-general of the state tax administration.
The new tourism tax was implemented to help fund more development within the tourism industry across the state. This mainly consists of generating tourism jobs and economic centers to make their state a strong visitor attraction. Governor Carlos Joaquin Gonzalez proposed the tax and it was approved by the state congress last year. It was originally estimated to generate $43.6 million but with the delay of the tax’s implementation because of COVID-19, it was reduced to $29 million in 2021.
