Resorts Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic provides everyone with a great opportunity to relax from that lingering snowy and from that short, which is “with grass and flowers” winter, so characteristic of the Russian climate. When you take a look at the photographs of the Dominican Republic, it seems that a good specialist in computer graphics has worked hard on them, but you should see the Caribbean live, as you immediately understand: here everything really is! Even more than that, there is still something that photography is simply not able to convey: the gentle ocean breeze, wonderful aromas of fresh fruits and flowers, the soft whisper of waves, the gentle sand under your feet. What else meets tourists visiting the Caribbean? Gorgeous beaches with white sand, real mojitos and daiquiri, dolphins and whales splashing in the ocean waves, chic hotels and fiery night clubs. There are many carnivals in the Dominican Republic, you just have to come to the island before Lent (in February) or in June to visit the Caribbean Music Festival, two weeks in late July-early August are the time of the Meringue Festival, and on August 15 – on the Restoration Day.
