“You'll be hard-pressed to find a Caribbean island with as much action as the Dominican Republic, due in large part to the country's expansive list of must-visit beaches and jungles. On the Samaná peninsula, the aptly named Playa Bonita has crystal-clear waters ideal for snorkelling and diving – and plenty of palm trees for your classic tropical 'gram. If you prefer green to blue, head to Los Haitises National Park on the island's north-east coast. With its unique limestone rock formations and mangrove forests, the park is easily one of the most beautiful places in the Dominican Republic – and perhaps even the entire Caribbean.” @condenasttraveller
