Thinking of travelling to the Dominican Republic for your next vacation? There are certainly a number of things to do and places to visit here, but you don't have all the time in the world. So here are narrowed down options--below are activities to be done once arriving in this beautiful paradise.

1)    Visit Bahia de Las Aguilas and Jaragua National Park

This remote beach is considered as one of the country's most magnificent. Who wouldn't agree?

Located on the Southwestern Coast of Demonican Republic, this undeveloped and unspoiled beach could be accessed by boat. Its shallow, turquoise waters gleam against the sunlight and it highlights the rich marine life of the body of water here.

2)    Punta Cana River Via Horseback Riding and Zipline Tour

Explore and experience the endlessly beautiful sceneries of Punta Cana in this affordable package. Walk, jog or gallop along the Anamuya River and be able to relish in the natural surroundings.

From a tiny village to a stunning oasis at a cigar plantation at the end of the trail, you could then stop and grab a drink and get a sample of freshly made cigars in front of you.

3)    Swim in the Hoyo Azul Cenote

Meaning "Blue Hole", Hoyo Azul is a secluded natural sinkhole. Swim along its crystal clear waters and see the steep limestone walls surrounding the hole. To get here, a natural trail should be hiked first. Don't worry; you'll enjoy the mix of tropical flowers and fruits in the forest.

4)    Stroll around Santo Domingo

This buzzing metropolitan city known as "La Capital" in the Dominican Republic is great for a morning, afternoon or evening stroll - basically any time of the day. Located beyond Zona Colonal, Santo Domingo is a mosaic of cultures. This can distinctly be seen in the parks and museums that surround the city. 

5)    Scape Park Cape Cana

This all-in-one tourist destination is as versatile as any place could get. Since Cape Cana is abundant in natural resources, the beach, mountains and tropical rainforest just at the tip of your fingers, you would definitely get your money's value. One example is Hoyo Azul (#3).

A number of superb outdoor activities, sports and entertainment are also around every corner.
