Listed below are five of our best-selling resorts in the Dominican Republic. Each one is all-inclusive, which means the upfront price includes accommodations, meals, alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, entertainment, activities and nonmotorized water sports.
The Dominican Republic is one of the most affordable resort destinations in the Caribbean. Snorkelers and divers explore coral reefs and shipwrecks, fishing enthusiasts compete for marlin and sailfish and golfers are drawn to courses designed by legends of the game.
But most come to the Dominican Republic simply to enjoy its broad, sandy stretches. For that, many vacationers check into the resorts of Punta Cana, such as the five top sellers listed below. Click the links to price a stay at any of them, with or without airfare.
