2. Amazing all inclusive resorts

Having just come back from what was meant to be a cheap holiday in Italy, I know the importance of knowing where your money goes. One of the best ways to keep track of your cash on holiday is to go all-inclusive. Before you arrive you have your budget set.

Check out the super impressive 55-metre Salto del Limón Waterfall in the Samaná mountain range while you’re in the Dominican Republic too. You can jump off one of the most daring cliffs on the planet, and then just go rafting in the Limón River.

There’s more to Punta Cana than idyllic beaches and hammocks, that’s for sure!

5. And try the local cuisine

Sancocho is the main event when it comes to Dominican Republic cuisine. It’s basically meat along with a combination of yucca, potato, banana, cilantro and other special ingredients at the chef’s fingers.

The Capri Beach House is a really cute spot by the sea, for a pina colada and some lobster. There are some really cute cafes around here, so aim for the Beach House and have a look around. 

6. To have fun at the Scape Park

The Scape Park is a natural theme park with jungle, views, walks and attractions to explore. Adventure lovers can enjoy the zipline, the hidden cenote (Hoyo Azul) and the cooling dip in the water too.
