The Dominican Republic is fast emerging as one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean. First visited by Christopher Columbus, in 1492, this fantastic country was rediscovered by Europeans visitors in the 1960s, and now North Americans are vacationing in the Dominican Republic in record numbers.
The beautiful island is covered in lush tropical vegetation and features more than 1,000 miles of pristine coastline. From world-class white-sand beaches to the highest mountains in the Caribbean, this country amazes visitors with its diversity of scenery and activities. Water sports include swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet-skiing, sea kayaking, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing and sailing. The spectacularly scenic mountain regions offer perfect locations for horseback riding, hiking and even tropical whitewater river rafting.
In the capitol of Santa Domingo you will find the Colonial Zone, rich in Spanish colonial architecture and artisan shops. The Dominican Republic also offers excellent golf courses, both at Casa de Campo and Playa Grande, on the north shore.
The music of the island is distinctive. The sounds of merengue, bacciata and salsa create the rhythm to which this country moves. Everywhere you go you will encounter genuine smiles and the warmth of the Dominican people.
LaCURE villas in the Dominican Republic are all luxurious and fully staffed. Choose between private villas on the grounds of Casa de Campo or locations set on the north shore, all with easy access to superb golf courses and beaches.
