By Caribbean standards, the Dominican Republic is a big island: more than 18,533 m2 (48,442km2) in size. Tourists landing at one destination will want to see the others. A range of excursions makes this possible.

Independent travelers can always explore alone and do most of the excursions on their own. But as is the case all around the world, tour companies in the Dominican Republic have packaged all the ‘what to see / what to do’ attractions to make things easy for visiting tourists.

There are all-day tours, water tours, adventure tours, horseback tours, dune buggy tours, Segway tours, SUP tours, catamaran tours, cultural tours – you name it. It is best to check at your hotel tour desk to find out which will include transportation to and from your hotel.
