Some of the most frequent questions we ask when we are planning a trip to the Dominican Republic are usually:
Every day we help hundreds of our guests with recommendations on the best activities for their vacations in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to our experience and their feedback, we believe we can offer you some of the best options if you are planning on spending your vacations in any of our four Princess hotels in the Dominican Republic.
Family vacations in the Caribbean? Fun for everyone!
If you’re traveling with children, chances are you will have booked the Tropical Princess or Bavaro Princess, two of the best hotels for children in the Caribbean. We suggest you choose half-day trips, which allow the family to get out and have fun, but at the same time not get too far away from the comfort of your resort.
Some of the activities that our guests traveling with kids enjoy most are swimming with dolphins, visiting Manatí Park or snorkeling.
If your kids are a little older and you’re looking for a bit more adventure to raise the adrenaline levels, there are also fascinating activities such as buggies, zip lines or swimming with sharks and manta rays. If we had to choose where to spend the day, it would probably be at the Adventure Park, a park where your kids will find all sorts of games, excitement and fun. Ideal for a half-day or full-day visit. At the end of the day, you can be sure that even the most active child will slump into bed in your family room suite.
Caribbean with friends? Paradisiacal islands, boat parties, coral reef diving … Everything you can imagine!
On the other hand, if your vacations in the Dominican Republic are with friends, you will most likely be staying in our Caribe Club Princess. For Caribbean vacations seeking a perfect combination of activities and visits to the most beautiful places, the catamaran excursions to Isla Saona or Isla Catalina are ideal. You can expect dancing, fun, laughter, and a large dose of crystal-clear Caribbean waters and tropical beaches. Starfish and colorful tropical fish, coconut palms and stunning natural pools will be the stars of your photos. An entire day living a dream come true.
In Punta Cana we also have activities that do not take up the whole day, such as the party boats which sail up and down the Bavaro beach coast to the natural pools. You also have our SeaPro Divers water sports center to help you organize a private boat party just for you and your friends. Rum, bachata and merengue at sea!
Another option is to visit “Los Ojos Indígenas“, a magical ecological park just over a 40-minute drive away, where you can discover natural, clear and refreshing freshwater pools where you can swim with the fish and turtles.
And one of the most recommended activities is to discover the spectacular underwater world of the beautiful barrier reef that surrounds our breathtaking location. Don’t forget to bring your diving license! And if you don’t yet have one, this is the best place to qualify for one in our learning centers.
Your honeymoon or anniversary in the Caribbean? Romantic activities, privacy and intimacy for your most special trip
If you’re traveling as a couple, don’t think we’ve forgotten about recommendations for the lovers who visit us at the Punta Cana Princess or stay in the Honeymoon Suite at the Bávaro Princess seeking a Dominican experience in a relaxed and intimate setting.
We have program options such as the VIP trips to Isla Catalina or Isla Saona, some of which include smaller boats, more privacy and exclusive enclaves on the beach.
Another great option is to discover the beautiful Samana peninsula, where depending on the season you can go whale watching, visit dream locations such as the Limon Waterfall, the Haitises Natural Park or Cayo Levantado beach.
If you are interested in historical and cultural attractions, you can visit the first ever city in the New World: Santo Domingo, the capital of Dominican Republic, a place to discover the first cathedral in America, stroll through the colonial area or visit the Alcazar de Colon Museum.
The best thing is that all of the Princess hotels in the Dominican Republic provide all of the assistance you need to choose the best activities for your vacations in the Caribbean, either through our SeaPro Divers water sports center or representatives of the travel agencies we work with in the lobby areas of our hotels, ready to help you make the most of your vacations.
