December 8-14, 2024

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, mangrove-lined lagoons, and calm azure waters that harbor fragile and productive coral reefs. Before long, you will be on “island time,” cultivating an appreciation for why 25% of this tropical country has been protected forever.


  • Explore the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, the city’s historic core and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Don snorkeling gear for a close-up look of coral outplanting at work.
  • Swim in the protected blue waters of the Caribbean Sea off Saona Island in the magnificent Parque Nacional del Este.
