Why go on holiday to the Dominican Republic?
|What should I do when I get there?
Lazing on the beach and sipping fresh coconut milk is popular, but don't miss the Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo. The old colonial district is one of the finest in the world, and the restored Alcazar de Colon is a good place to chill out.
But what about those beaches?
Windsurfers head for the world-famous bay at Cabarete. Even if renting a board seems too much like hard work, it's a good place to hang out with a cold one and take in the local scene, especially during the Encuentro Classic championships in February.
Deep-sea fishing is found at Cabeza de Toro, Boca de Yuma and Montecristi in the north-west.
And if I feel like a stroll?
As well as beaches, the Dominican Republic has rainforests, lowlands, deserts and coastal swamplands. It has five national parks, but you need permission to visit, obtainable in Santo Domingo.
Watch out for the varied birdlife, including hummingbirds and the zumbadorcito, one of the smallest birds in the world.
|Time for fiesta|
|Where's good for nightlife?
Merengue is the island's favourite beat and can be found from the beach to the bar and everywhere in between. Dominicans love to party, with merengue festivals held in Santo Domingo during July and Puerta Plata in October.
Santa Domingo hosts Carnival twice a year, once in late February and then again in mid-August. If you want more action, try the country's casinos or venture into one of the galleras (cockfight pits) found in every town.
What's the food like?
Traditional Dominican cuisine is a savoury blend of African and Spanish ingredients.
The most popular dishes are sancocho (pork roasted on a spit), a rice and bean combination called moro, cassava bread, longaniza (pork sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), goat stew and fish with coconut milk.
What should I buy?
Merengue fans will have no problem finding cassettes or CDs to take home; the nation's favourite artists include Juan Luis Guerra, Miriam Cruz and Los Hermanos Rosario.
Resist the temptation to buy articles made from endangered species such as sea turtles and crocodiles, choosing instead products that use Dominican amber or larimar, the blue stone unique to the region.
What is there for children to do?
Children are welcome all over the Dominican Republic, catered for at every gathering and fiesta.
All but the most nervous will enjoy a boat ride on Lago Enriquillo to see the crocodiles, followed by a visit to Isla Cabritos, home to some startlingly large iguanas.
Bahia de Samana on the north-east coast is recommended by the World Wildlife Fund as one of the best spots in the world to watch whales, while the tranquil zoo in Santo Domingo offers animal-spotting up close.
