Flights to Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a real chameleon of a destination. It can be whatever you want it to be. The eastern shores are a land of manicured beaches where palm trees line up along the sides of glistening infinity pools and swish resorts. The west is a place of hulking mountains, all clad in jungle and tobacco farms as they rise to meet the highest summit in the Caribbean at Pico Duarte.
The south has the immersive cobbled zones of Santo Domingo, a city of plazas and palazzos that was founded by the brother of Christopher Columbus. The north, meanwhile, is a rugged stretch of shoreline that goes for hundreds of miles along the Atlantic Ocean; a place to surf and skim across the water while looking for whales and dolphins. Grab your flights to Dominican Republic and experience all that and more.

Things You Need to Know About Flights to Dominican Republic
The most-visited country in the whole of the Caribbean is also, unsurprisingly, among the most accessible places in the region. It’s got a handful of international airports up its sleeve, ranging from the coast-side resort gateway of Punta Cana, which is popular for all inclusive holiday deals, to the hub of Santo Domingo airport in the capital. Flights to Dominican Republic take around 9 hours and 15 minutes and flights go direct into Punta Cana’s International Airport.
Be sure to think about precisely where you want to go before booking those Dominican Republic flights, though – you may need to plan an extra internal connection to get you to the beaches, mountains or towns you’re most excited to explore.
UK passport holders no longer need to apply for a visa or tourist card to gain entry to the Dominican Republic. Car rentals or private resort transfers are easy to come by in most of the major airports – you could be donning your beachwear and unfurling the hammock in no time!
Best Time to Visit Dominican Republic
Most travellers with the glistening sands and sloshing seas of Punta Cana in their mind will plan their trip to the Dominican Republic for the dry season. That runs between November and March and sees the least rain of all, with December and January among the busiest – and most expensive – times. In April, the rainy season takes over. It goes all the way until November and can throw up some pretty hefty tropical storms, especially during the autumn. The upshot is that months like June and July offer a good balance between crowds and weather. It’s the rainy season then but downpours can be patchy, and temperatures remain nice and high.
How to Find Cheap Flights to Dominican Republic
Booking early is the best way to get the cheapest flights to Dominican Republic. Of course, heading to the Dominican Republic during the off season months of June or September – either side of the August rush – can also help keep costs low. You’ll just need to be ready for potential downpours or storms between sunbathing sessions.
