A Dominican Republic honeymoon is the perfect choice for the couple who embraces nature, dance and life. Besides being the most visited nation in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic also boasts the Caribbean’s largest lake and highest mountaintop. You can traverse the rugged mountains and tour the Dominican Republic’s wildlife-filled lakes. Whether you’re looking for adventurous activities and exploration, long days lounging by the ocean, or a mixture of both, honeymooners will find it in the Dominican Republic.
Outdoorsy types can climb Pico Duarte, the country’s highest mountain top. Couples can start their trip at Jarabacoa, where most organized hiking tours of Pico Duarte are offered. Beginners will pack their mules full of supplies and tour the country’s majestic mountain with the help of tour guides. Expert climbers can go the daring route and start their journey in San Juan de la Maguana, where there is less assistance and travelers will need to rely on their own skills to get them to the summit and back. Either provides an intriguing glimpse of the nature residing on the highest mountaintop of the Caribbean.
