The beaches stretch for miles, the people are some of the friendliest in the world and the rhythm of the island will get you moving as soon as your feet touch the ground.

Dominican Republic is an island close in proximity to Cuba but smaller in size.

Both islands are just off the coast of Florida so for those living on the East Coast, the flight to paradise is between 2.5 – 3 hours tops.

Dominican Republic is known for its breathtaking scenery, warm people and turquoise sea.

A week-long stay at a 5-star hotel with an all-inclusive service starts at around $900 per person and although this doesn’t sound like much, the service is impeccable, the hotels are clean and the staff is friendly.

Mexico is located just south of the US and offers plenty of beach fun given that it’s large in size and surrounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. You can take your pick between Cancun, Acapulco or the Yucatán province, enjoying the beaches, culture, animal and plant life, historical artifacts and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Mexico is slightly more expensive than Cuba and the DR. A week-long stay at a 5-star hotel with an all inclusive service starts at about $1500 per person and is sure to give you a holiday you’ll never forget.

Choosing between Cuba, Dominican Republic and Mexico means wherever you go you’ll have a great time and wish to come back. So, pack your bags and enjoy your dream Caribbean vacation.
