Where in the World?

While every other family is heading to the obvious places like Orlando, Myrtle Beach and Virginia, consider going somewhere off the beaten path. Somewhere you and your family can play, relax, and learn something together. We recommend the Puerto Plata Dominican Republic for many reasons.

The Dominican Republic is a best kept secret. The landscape is stunning with miles of pristine beaches, majestic mountain ranges and lush, verdant valleys.
