Dominican Republic resorts are fast becoming a popular family destination. I suppose the reason behind this popularity has to be the family resorts that are offering many facilities to keep family holidays enjoyable and entertaining. The southern coast, right from east of Santo Domingo to Punta Cana, plays host to majority of the resorts. Those resorts offer you an exciting and relaxing holiday at a reasonable price.
There are many resorts to choose from. It is difficult to say which one is better than the other it depends on what you are looking for. The largest all- inclusive Dominican Republic resort is the Casa de Campo in La Romana. This resort sprawls across 7,000 acres and is home to the famous Teeth of the Dog golf course. You and your family can spend time playing tennis, riding horses or indulging in a variety of water sports on this resort. If you get tired of this, you can walk to the marina and visit shops. You can also try different types of food at the restaurants along the marina.
There are resorts that can be fun for teenagers. If you have teenagers (or if you yourself are a teenager), you can consider going to Club Med at Punta Cana. This Dominican Republic resort has programs and activities for kids from the age of 2 to 17. Teenagers can spend their time skating, skateboarding, playing football or just hanging out with other teenagers.
Have you heard of a family concierge? If no, then you may visit the Dominican Republic resort called The Paradisus Palma Real in Playa de Bavaro at Punta Cana. The family concierge has facilities that will take care of your kids well. You can spend time relaxing in the pool or at the restaurant. Your kids will be safely looked after. The activities that they can engage themselves in within the resort will ensure that they are happy keeping themselves busy.
Dominican Republic also has resorts on the northern coast near Puerto Plata. They are smaller than their southern coast counterparts. The northern coast is also called the Amber Coast because of large deposits of amber. This coast is known to be one of the best windsurfing destinations in the world. Few kilometers from Puerto Plata is the famous Ocean World in Cofresi. Here you can touch, pet or feed sharks. The resort also offers lots and lots of dolphin entertainment. If you have the time, you can visit the sea lions or just admire the wonders of the reef with a snorkel reef tour.
There is no shortage of vacationing opportunities at those resorts. Now you do not even have to leave the comforts of your home to book a Dominican Republic resort. You can simply go on the internet and book your vacation to the resort of your choice. Now that resorts are fast gaining popularity as Honeymoon destinations, if a second honeymoon is on your mind you now know where to go!
