Discover a nature lover’s paradise in the white sandy beaches and lavish greenery of the Dominican Republic. From Pico Duarte—the highest mountain in the Caribbean—to the country’s lowest point at Lake Enriquillo, diverse wildlife settles into an intricate mosaic of lush rain and cloud forests, rolling savannas, saltwater lakes, mangrove-lined lagoons and calm azure waters that harbor fragile and productive coral reefs. Before long, guests will be on “island time,” and cultivating an appreciation for why 25% of this tropical country has been protected forever.


  • Search for migrating humpback whales in Samaná Bay.
  • Explore the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, the city’s historic core and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
