Keep reading to find out some tips for planning the trip of a lifetime!
Get All Your Ducks in a Row
If you’re traveling from the United States, you’ll need a tourist visa before you travel to the Dominican Republic. Make sure you apply for your visa well ahead of time.
Be sure to check your passport too and make sure that it’s not expired, and that you have at least 6 months left before it does.
If you have the time before you leave, learn some Spanish, even if it’s just a few words. Dominicans are some of the most welcoming and happy people in the world. You’ll enjoy your stay that much more if you can make an effort to communicate with locals.
Plus, learning a new language is both fun and empowering!
Don’t worry about your cash. Even though you’ll get more bang for your buck if you use the local currency, there are currency exchange offices everywhere.
And bring sunscreen. The Dominican Republic is sunny almost every day of the year and the worst way to start off a tropical vacation is to get a major sunburn.
Take Advantage of the Amenities
Now Onyx sits along one of the Dominican Republic’s most beautiful beaches. The beaches are lined with chairs and thatched umbrellas so you can relax in style at any time of the day.
There are 5 pools at the Now Onyx Punta Cana, including two freshwater infinity pools and a saltwater kids’ pool. One of the best things about this hotel is the modern rooms.
Nothing is worse than traveling to a beautiful destination, only to find that the place where you’ll be laying your head at night is lacking and dated. At Now Onyx, the rooms are modern and there are flatscreen TVs, foldout love seats, and free minibars.

The Dominican Republic has quite a few museums that are worth the trip, including the Amber Museum, which was built in 1918 and is located in historic Santo Domingo.

Eat the Yummy Food
A classic Dominican breakfast is one that sets the tone for the day. Fried salami, eggs, mango, and queso frito make the most delicious breakfast you’ve ever had. Mangu on its own is a dish in itself. It’s made from boiled, green plantains that are mashed and topped with red onions that are sauteed. Don’t forget to wash it down with a smooth cup of Dominican Joe.
One of the most common meals of DR and one you can’t miss is named after the flag. It’s called La Bandera and it consists of stewed beans, white rice, and meat that is usually roasted or stewed.
Tostones, fried plantains, are the perfect pairing for La Bandera.
