T ravelling with family and friends in groups can make for a really fun and fulfilling vacation. But of course, everyone has different interests so it’s important to hit up a destination that’s versatile. Meet the Dominican Republic! Here, everyone can discover an experience that’s right up their alley, whether they want to get close to nature, work on their golf swing, be immersed in the local culture, or observe curious creatures in their natural habitats. Plus when you book through Sunwing, there’s a host of excursions hand-selected by the tour operator’s local destination experts, ensuring that there’s truly an excursion for every traveller that visits the Dominican Republic. Here are a few of the highlights:

For adventure-seekers

There are plenty of opportunities to get your blood pumping in the Dominican Republic. Imagine flying on a zipline from cliffs to trees above Cap Cana’s tropical jungle canopy or venturing along the off-roads of Punta Cana in a rugged buggy through secluded caves, and along muddy paths. Don’t forget about the Dominican’s incredible waters which you can explore on a catamaran sailing through the crystal clear Caribbean Sea or by zooming along the waves in a speedboat.

For animal lovers

With national parks and scientific reserves comprising 25 percent of its landscape, the Dominican Republic boasts an impressive array of tropical species to discover. Embark on a safari tour through Punta Cana’s verdant natural landscapes and serene mountaintops, where you’ll get the opportunity to observe the country’s native creatures like crocodiles, turtles, and iguanas in their natural habitat. Plenty more awaits out in the Dominican’s tropical waters, like the chance to see majestic humpback whales gliding underwater. Then, dip below the surface to admire a jaw-dropping array of vibrant tropical fish and coral formations during a snorkelling excursion or a scuba dive. Also, if you’re looking to explore while enjoying the company of animals, Sunwing offers a number of excursions where you can explore Punta Cana on horseback.

For culture-vultures

If you’re fascinated by history, the Dominican won’t disappoint. The capital, Santo Domingo, offers rich history and so much culture to explore, from a colonial district featuring a house built by Christopher Columbus to heritage lighthouses and old cathedrals. Shop for unique wares and pick up souvenirs for yourself and loved ones at traditional Dominican markets where you can nab a bargain if you practise your bartering skills.

For golfers

Eager to get out on the greens? The Dominican Republic offers incredible opportunities to tee off on world-renowned courses. If you plan on spending your vacation perfecting your swing, your best bet is to book a stay at one of the Dominican’s many golf-centric resorts, like the Hodelpa Garden Suites Golf and Beach Club, where guests enjoy preferential green fees on the meticulously-manicured Los Marlins Metro Country Club. There’s also a tranquil spa on site and a luxurious beach club nearby when you’re ready to kick back. In Puerto Plata, golfers can book a stay at the Casa Colonial Beach and Spa where the nearby Playa Grande Golf Course, one of the best in the area, was designed by the famous golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Senior.

Regardless of your interests and needs, you’re sure to discover a fascinating adventure, tour or excursion experience in the Dominican. Plus, all Sunwing packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back and relax with award-winning inflight service, which includes a sparkling wine toast, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford.
