Cheap Flights to the Dominican Republic

Home to towering mountains, colonial architecture and a huge choice of beaches, the Dominican Republic is one of the most diverse countries in the Caribbean. Bask in the shade of a palm tree, explore mangrove lagoons and fishing villages, or go whale spotting in bays once ruled by pirates.

When to Book Flights to the Dominican Republic

When thinking about booking your Dominican Republic flights, there are two main high seasons to keep in mind. The resorts fill up in July and August, then again in December to April, when people visit for some much needed winter sun. At both these times it can be harder to find Cheap Flights to the Dominican Republic, and accommodation is more expensive too.

Spring and fall can be good times to visit, as temperatures are still warm. Plus, you might be able to save on your flights and other vacation costs, and the major tourist areas are less crowded.

It’s also worth remembering that the Dominican Republic lies in the hurricane belt: it can be hit by large storms in August and September.

Main Airports in the Dominican Republic

There are eight international airports in the Dominican Republic. Of these, the busiest is Punta Cana International with around seven million passenger journeys each year and more than 60,000 commercial aircraft movements. It accounts for around half of all the air traffic coming in and out of the country.

Las Americas is the next biggest, with around 3.5 million passengers, and serves the city of Santo Domingo. Cibao is another of the larger airports, with more than a million people using it each year. International flights also land at Gregorio Luperon and La Romana.

Which Airlines Fly to the Dominican Republic?

There’s a good choice of airlines operating low-cost flights to the Dominican Republic from the US.

These include:

  • American Airlines
  • Delta
  • JetBlue
  • United
  • Vacation Express

How to Get Around in the Dominican Republic

Internal flights are the quickest way of getting around, with no rail system in the country. Most towns have a regular scheduled bus service usually connecting to other big cities, with regular stops at smaller towns along the way.

Local buses, known as guaguas, are the traditional way of traveling for local people over short distances. They fill up quickly so expect your journey to be cramped, although they can be lots of fun too. They can range from modern air-conditioned vehicles to old and run-down rust buckets – it’s the luck of the draw which one turns up on the day.

Taxis are available in the cities and larger towns but there can be problems with unlicensed drivers, so get your hotel to call one for you rather than trying to flag them down in the street.

Places to Visit in the Dominican Republic

Punta Cana

A region in the eastern tip of the island, this is a prime sport for beaches. Peak season tends to be between December and April, when people flock here for the endless hours of sunshine.

Santo Domingo

The oldest European city in the Americas, the capital is a listed Unesco World Heritage Site. It was founded by Christopher Columbus’ brother Bartolome in 1496 and is overflowing with history and culture. Explore the Zona Colonial for some of the finest architecture in the Caribbean.

Costa del Coco

The ‘Coconut Coast’ boasts reef-protected white sandy beaches and is the go to place for many visitors looking for some relaxed sun. There are lots of resorts here but it’s also possible to get away from the crowds and discover the region’s natural wildernesses.

Tips for Traveling in the Dominican Republic

Avoid drinking the tap water, buy bottled water instead. If possible, try not to eat salads unless you know they have been prepared with clean water. Ice in drinks, except in some of the higher end hotels, is also probably best avoided.

All visitors need a tourist card to enter the Dominican Republic. You can get these in advance from the embassy or on arrival for a cost of around US$10. No visas are required for stays of less than 30 days.
