If you love to bet or just soak in the casino atmosphere, head to Santo Domingo, Punta Cana, Santiago, or Puerto Plata—the three best casino hubs of the DR. Lining the capital’s Malecón seafront boulevard, most of Santo Domingo’s brand hotels offer full service casinos. Try your hand at roulette, blackjack, or poker, among other options, while the drinks flow, often to live merengue music. In Puerto Plata, Ocean World’s casino doubles as a nighttime bar with cabaret-style shows. Punta Cana’s world-class resorts each offer casino entertainment on site, and remain open throughout the night. In Santiago, the city center lights up at night with casino signs.
Rolling the dice is a year round possibility in the DR. Place your bets!
North to south, the DR’s casinos are as popular with locals as they are with visitors.
