For sandy swathes against a backdrop of dramatic mountains, book a flight to the Dominican Republic.
If you’re looking for a tropical island, start thinking about flights to the Dominican Republic. Jungle-like greenery flows down hillsides until it reaches sugar-white sands. You’ll find palm-thatched huts barbecuing the catch of the day and serving potent rum punches. And it’s all set to the soundtrack of sultry merengue. Not only that but you’ll be following in the footsteps of Columbus - albeit getting a flight to the Dominican Republic is a little more modern – as he first set foot on the island in 1504.
