Awards for the Dominican Republic

This year, the Dominican Republic topped the list at number one for the best destination in the Caribbean! And out of all of the countries in the world, the Dominican Republic was selected 13th! Pretty impressive right?
And don’t forget about the beaches. The Dominican Republic made the list for Bavaro Beach ranking at number 19. Although I’d have to say, there are so many other beaches on the island that could definitely rank higher on the list.

Why The Dominican Republic is the Best Destination in the Caribbean

The Dominican Republic is a paradise for people who love the beach. There are over 900 miles of Caribbean coastline with gorgeous beaches of every kind. Between the soft, white sand in Punta Cana, the kitesurfing beaches in Cabarete, and the whale watching in Samana there is truly something for everyone on this beautiful island. And did I mention that the weather is amazing all year round! You’ll never want to leave!
