However, there are a ton to choose from, whether you’re seeking Punta Cana all-inclusive family resorts or hotels for adults only.

The Dominican Republic has so many resorts. Whether you like being secluded in tropical paradise with your lover or prefer to sip cocktails at the pool bar while your kids are at play, this island has a resort that is perfect for you. Between the 100-plus all-inclusive options in Punta Cana and the lesser-known beach havens found in Las Terrenas, you can spend weeks trying to determine where to stay. Luckily, we’ve done the work for you.

Geography
The Dominican Republic is an impressive blend of geographical wonders that span from crystalline beaches to towering mountain peaks.

History
The enduring history of the Dominican Republic traces as far back as 8,000 years ago to the arrival of the Taino Indians. It wasn’t until Christopher Columbus’ famous voyage in 1492 that Europeans arrived on the island and enslaved the Taino Indians in order to harvest the gold discovered on the island. The centuries following European contact were marked by colonization and war. Today, relics from the ancient Taino civilization and structures from the colonial era stand as a monument to the rich history of the Dominican Republic.

Cultural Experience
Music, food and baseball best describe the cultural obsessions of the Dominican people. Merengue is the national dance of the Dominicans and its jubilant spirit can be seen in every cultural affair. Seasoning the music and accompanying the festivities is the savory taste of fresh seafood and ripe island fruits. Colorful cuisine is part of the Dominican way of life and is an important part of your stay. The bustling areas near most all inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic are surrounded by the many restaurants and marketplaces that fill the local streets. Handcrafted cigars, sweet rum and dazzling jewels make an excellent excuse for engaging the culture and bringing some of it home.
