Dominican Republic

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
One of the most under-rated Caribbean islands, the Dominican Republic is bursting with rainforest, culture and beautiful beaches. The introduction of British Airways flights to Punta Cana in the east, with its impressive new array of sophisticated resorts, is a sign of the high quality you can expect. Check out these gold standard resorts at silver prices.
