Dominican Republic: See & Experience Almost It All In 6 Days
Our tour guides/drivers are licensed, speak English and know how to bring excitement to your day. What we deliver is the complete opposite of the cookie-cutting tours the big corporations offer, leaving you in complete boredom. Although our tour guides/drivers are attentive, accommodating and engaged, they also know when to give you your private space and free time. It's a perfect balance. *Female guides are available upon request.Note that although virtually all activities on this multi-day tour are shared with other travelers, we can at least make the land tours (exploring the city of Santo Domingo and the village of Altos de Chavon) completely private, per your request, at an additional cost.
CharlieTheTraveler runs over 20 tours at this current time. Our meal inclusions and exclusions are pretty much the same for each tour. Breakfast and dinner are not included. Lunches are included specifically when making a daytrip via boat. Otherwise, they are not. We are very picky about food and refuse to accept anything short of quality. We do our best to ensure you are being offered healthy and tasty local cuisine.

We take care of almost all of your transportation needs once you are on the tour.
For this tour, you would be staying the whole time in Punta Cana. It is always from there you would make daily excursions. We most commonly have our customers stay at Occidental Caribe or El Embajador. Keep Note this is subject to availability.This tour includes lodging for 1 night. However, upon request, we can book accommodation for you for all nights at an establishment which meets your needs. For years, we automatically included 5-star hotels in our travel packages. In the interest of our customers, we ultimately decided to reduce the price of our tours and encourage specifically those with higher expectations to simply request room upgrades. Why? Some of our customers want simple and clean but ultimately cheap rooms. Some of our customers want 4-star hotels and are willing to pay more. Others want nothing short of 5-star extravagance. There isn’t a way to uphold ONE standard for hotels in our travel packages considering everyone has a different budget. What we CAN uphold are the standard and quality of our tours, all of which offer nothing short of a first-class experience. Again, upon request, we can upgrade your room type for the night included as well as book lodging for all nights on this tour. Let us know and we will provide you with pricing options.

International flights are not included in the price. However, we would be happy to assist you in finding airfare upon request.
All participants are required to book travel insurance within 72 hours of booking this tour. At a minimum, such insurance must cover cancellations, medical expenses, evacuations, flight loss or delays and 24/7 assistance.

Itinerary of your trip Dominican Republic: See & Experience Almost It All In 6 Days
- Day 1 Day 1: Arriving Into The Dominican Republic’S Showcase Resort
Day 1: Arriving Into The Dominican Republic’S Showcase Resort
We start our trip to the Dominican Republic in Punta Cana. This is also where we are based for the entire duration of our tour. It is from here we make daily excursions, which are packed with culture and excitement. Today we pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel. Let's check out Bavaro. It is the most popular white-sand beach in the Punta Cana area.
- Day 2 Day 2: An Open Bar On & Catamaran Ride To Catalina Island As Well As Visiting A Mediterranean-Style Village
Day 2: An Open Bar On & Catamaran Ride To Catalina Island As Well As Visiting A Mediterranean-Style Village
We are taken this morning to a dock near to La Romana. There we take the catamaran departure to Catalina Island. Lunch is included today, as is an open bar once on Catalina Island. The island offers a diverse preservation of ecosystems, including sand dunes, mangroves and reefs. Formed out of coral stone, the island contains three overlapping plateaus. The seas around the island are rich in wildlife, with many species of birds and tropical marine fish. Catalina Island is especially popular for snorkeling. Once we have returned to the dock near to La Romana, we are taken to Altos de Chavon. At this recreated Mediterranean style village located atop the Chavon River, we are provided with a guided tour. Altos de Chavon hosts a cultural center, an archeological museum and an amphitheater.
- Day 3 Day 3: The Caribbean'S Most Underrated City, Colonial Santo Domingo
Day 3: The Caribbean'S Most Underrated City, Colonial Santo Domingo
Today we visit the oldest permanent European settlement of the New World, Santo Domingo. There we are provided with a guided tour. The colonial zone is an architectural gem that truly feels detached from the rest of the city. Think of attractive Spanish era squares, monuments and parks, shirtless men playing dominoes, good food, exciting music (not least bachata and meringue) and an amazing nightlife scene. The Old Town (a.k.a. Zona Colonial) has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is an important section of the city due to the high number of landmarks, including the residence of Alcázar de Colón, Fortaleza Ozama Castle and Primada de America Cathedral. Although the Old Town deserves most of our time, the outer areas of Gazcue and the Malecon are worth exploring too. All in all, the capital of the Dominican Republic is arguably one of the region’s most underrated destinations.
