Swaying coconut palm trees, warm Caribbean sea and picture-perfect white sand, a honeymoon in the Dominican Republic is the perfect choice for any couple looking for a tropical paradise

Many couples head straight for the all-inclusive resorts at Punta Cana, where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. This large Caribbean island has adventures in spades whether it’s horseback riding, hiking or zip-lining through the mountains and valleys of its rural interior.

Dominican Republic was one of the first islands of the “new world” colonised by Europeans and the UNESCO World Heritage capital city, Santo Domingo, has centuries-old architecture and history.

Of course, the beaches are some of the best in the world with incredible snorkelling, diving and water sports opportunities. 


Dominican Republic is a tropical destination that is warm all year round and experiences ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ seasons. The wettest months are from June to October when you can expect occasional heavy downpours. During the wet season, hurricanes can sometimes occur, particularly from August to October. The best time to visit the Dominican Republic for a honeymoon is from December to April.
