"Dominican Republic" Dominican Republic by trek06

Dominican Republic Travel Guide: 3,021 reviews and 6,814 photos

We first visited Punta Cana in DR in 2003 and returned to DR because we enjoyed the beaches, to Puerto Plata. The beaches are nicer at Punta Cana but there is more to do at Puerto Plata. We have only done all inclusives in DR which isn't the best way to learn about a country's culture. We did however take a "Dominican Safari" tour which enabled us to see a small part of this beautiful country. These kids jump off the top of this water fall and climb back up the rock face for tourists to raise money in tips for their families.

Dominican Safari Tour: Country School

As part of the Safari tour we stopped at a typical country school.
