Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is one of the most inviting destinations in the Caribbean. Colourful crafts, friendly people and non-stop fun are waiting for you with open arms.

In the heart of the Caribbean, occupying two- thirds of the island of Hispaniola, lies the Dominican Republic. Discovered by Columbus in 1492, it has been welcoming tourists ever since!

A combination of enchanting history, breathtaking mountains, spectacular beaches with azure waters, and the seductive beat of the Merengue, makes this friendly island Sunquest's fastest growing destination.

Golf is also one of the DR's top attractions, now with over 15 courses in exquisite settings, some from world-class designers such as Robert Trent Jones. See the hotel pages for some of the outstanding golf deals we have negotiated on your behalf!
