The Dominican Republic is well known for its blissful beaches: the crystal clear waves of Punta Cana, the eye-catching turquoise waters at Bahía de las Águilas, and the deep blues of the Atlantic lapping at golden sands on Samaná Peninsula. While all are fantastic stops on the island, the DR has a beating heart full of outdoor adventure, colonial and indigenous history and cool mountain breezes that often gets overlooked.
