The best time to travel to the Caribbean is Christmas or Easter, in summer it is too hot. The main destinations that you will see offered are those of the Dominican Republic, and without a doubt, the destinations to Playa Bávaro, Punta Cana, La Romana, or Samaná.
If your destination is Bávaro (La Altagracia province), it is in the northeast of the island and 25 kilometers from Punta Cana, both areas are known as the Costa del Coco. The beaches are a spectacle, due to their temperature, with very fine white sand, and above all, the color of the sea, almost always turquoise. The hotel complexes that you will find in Playa Bávaro are crowned by Spanish chains: Iberostar, Bahía Principe, Barceló, Riu or Meliá. All of them have an All-inclusive format and an important number of activities within the hotel, if you like this holiday format, you will enjoy it a lot since the service is quite good and dedicated.
Without a doubt, one of the best activities you can do during the days you are in Bavaro are walking and/or jogging on its beach or not getting out of the water; P, the sea tempura is spectacular at any time of the day. The “schedule” to enjoy the sea and the pools in winter/autumn are usually until 6:00 p.m.
Within these hotel complexes, you can find a wide range of excursions to explore the island, the average cost of these excursions per day and person is usually € 90, and you can always hire them while already in the Dominican Republic. A highly recommended excursion is the one that takes you to the Natural Pools of the Eastern National Park, where you will be able to enjoy the authentic Caribbean Sea, the water reaches your waist and while you swim you can have starfish as companions.
After the pools, you will go to the Island of Saona (it is the largest island in the Dominican Republic and is part of the Eastern National Park ), almost certainly the visit to the towns of Mano Juan and Capuano will not be scheduled, but if You have the opportunity, visit Mano Juan, it is a fairly authentic fishing village, and closer to the reality of the island (nothing to do with what you experience as a tourist within the hotel complexes).
Strolling along the island’s beach is a real luxury, and if you have time, have a good time snorkeling or resting on any of the sun loungers on the beach. Almost always, the return to the island of the Dominican Republic is done by catamaran.
If you have time, it is also interesting that you go to the capital Santo Domingo (it is 281 kilometers from Bavaro, it is approximately 3 hours if you have your own vehicle) where you can visit the Colonial Zone (the oldest part of the city), approximately The tour of the old city and its markets is three hours, the safest thing is that this excursion will also be scheduled from the hotel, if not, you can rent a car, since the roads from Bavaro to Santo Domingo are good ( They have several payment tolls), that if inside the city get ready, it has a good chaotic point.
