Going to popular vacation spots like the Dominican Republic is really comfortable. From Miami it is only a flight of 1 hour and from New York it's just about 3 hours. Probably this is one of the reasons why this vacation spot has become so popular.
While you could pick out each item, airfare, hotel, eating, and entertainment separately, the more beneficial deal is to look for a package that comes with everything, even with your tips.
Naturally you can go with well established online travel sites like Travelocity, Priceline, Travelnow, or Caribbean, where you probably can find great bargains. Another option is to deal directly with the hotel. You can call or email the hotel or resort you would like to visit in order to get a general idea what kind of deal they can offer to you.
In the Dominican Republic you can find a lot of hotels and resorts to choose from and nearly all of these are all inclusive. You get all what you want to have a really fun and relaxing time. An example of a good all inclusive deal has a 4-day, 5-night vacation package that comes with an economy round trip airplane ticket from your home town with hotel, drinks, food, and entertainment included. The price for such a package was for anytime in January 2008 and after $699.00. This offer was for the Puerto Plata Iberostar Costa Dorada Hotel resort, conveniently located half-hour from the airport.
On the Lifestyle Tropical Beach resort you can get at Cofresi Beach beachfront hotel the perfect deal for families. This hotel features comfortable rooms with patios or balconies. There is a bar placed directly at the pool and a special swimming area for the kids. There is only a short walking distance to the Ocean World Adventure Park and the Marina. For some other local establishments the hotel provides trade vouchers. So you are able to try out other places to serve you.
Highlight of the Ocean World is a Sea Lion, you can watch two times a day, a bird aviary, a reef for snorkeling, and a Rainforest show. Of course kids will enjoy that park. In the Marina there is a Casino for adult entertainment. For this holiday resort you will get a 4-night package for less than $750 for each person. Think second honeymoon, so it may be a good idea to bring your mother-in-law along to watch your kids.
Whenever you are in search of an alternative to the hotel and resort experience there is all of the time the option of vacation rentals. On the internet you can find some sites that are specialized in making these kinds of arrangements. These sites offer a wide range of rentals. You can get everything from a very reasonable apartment rental to the rental of a luxury villa. Really beautiful is the "Castle Villa in Sousa/Cabareta," a villa with a private pool and 2 bedrooms and baths.
Another possibility when going to this popular vacation spots is Bed and Breakfasts. Even though on the internet you'll find only a few information about this offer. To check these out you almost have to be in the country, because Bed and Breakfasts are accommodations in private residences. If you are able to take in a more individual vacation these can be great arrangements.In this way you are able to actually experience the locals of this beautiful country. No matter what option you are going with, you can be sure to have a great time in the Dominican Republic.
