Rest in the resorts of the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is an island nation. It is located on the island of Haiti and occupies more than half of its territory. In the south of the Dominican Republic is washed by the warm waves of the Caribbean Sea, and in the north – by the Atlantic Ocean.
Almost all tourists who visited this country consider it an exotic paradise. And it is not surprising, because the Dominican Republic is the cradle of fiery dance rhythms, a magnificent example of Latin American culture.
This country has an ancient history and unique architecture. The entire coast of the republic is one continuous beach. Warm clean water, white sand and high-quality service – all this can be found at any resort in this country. However, this, perhaps, the similarity of resorts ends. Let’s consider what else a tourist can see when visiting the resorts of the Dominican Republic.
Amber Coast, also called Puerto Plata, is located in the north of the republic. The resort received its name due to the huge reserves of amber.
Punta Cana (translated into Russian – a meeting place for palm trees) is, perhaps, the most environmentally friendly town on the island. It is forbidden to build buildings that can harm nature. Arriving here, you can enjoy the picturesque landscapes, a huge number of palms of different species. Near the resort is a picturesque place Heigen. Cafes are located near the water, so every vacationer can not only enjoy the national fish dishes, but also hear the light ocean breeze. Punta Cana is very suitable for lovers of water sports, as well as for family holidays.
Boca Chica is the best resort in the republic. Since 1920, the local elite began to build here their summer residences. There are no historical sites here, but there is a beautiful beach and a lagoon protected by coral reefs. In April, international fishing competitions are held in Boca Chica. Therefore, arriving in Boca-Chaka at this time, you can enjoy not only all the charms of the competition, but also enjoy national fish dishes.
Santo Domingo was founded in the 15th century by the brother of Christopher Columbus. Soon Santo Domingo becomes the capital of the Spanish colonies. And from 1844 to the present day is the capital of the Dominican Republic.
Like any capital, Santo Domingo has a great historical past, which is represented in works of art and architectural monuments. Colonial areas of the city are protected by UNESCO. However, the locals carefully protect their historical monuments in order to give tourists the opportunity to get to know them.
The main attractions of Santo Domingo: the Alcazar Castle, the Osama Fortress, the National Museum, the Tore del Omenahe tower. National Gallery of Fine Arts. Until 1922, the Columbus’ tomb was located in this gallery. The Catholic Cathedral and various palaces are also a landmark of the city.
