Boasting over 1,000 miles of coastline, Dominican Republic is a popular choice for a Caribbean beach vacation. It’s bordered by both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, creating a unique, tropical landscape for visitors to enjoy. This lush island is also known for its mountain ranges, rich culture and historic relics.

With so many reasons to visit, it’s no surprise that many sites offer cheap vacation packages to Dominican Republic. We’ve compared the top sites based on customer service, price and availability to highlight the following three. We recommend searching your travel dates on all three sites to find the best deal.
CheapCaribbean has the largest selection of cheap vacation packages to Dominican Republic’s most popular cities, like Punta Cana and Santo Domingo. You can bundle flights and hotels to save more than $100 compared to other sites. For limited amounts of time, CheapCaribbean offers different all-inclusive vacation packages at up to 50% off, with extra Freebies like resort credits. They also advertise a Deal of Fortune, where you can book a mystery hotel at up to 65% off. CheapCaribbean has a 24-hour cancellation policy, and added trip protection available for purchase.
For last minute vacation deals to Dominican Republic, Expedia is our top choice. They have a huge selection of properties so you can save around $200 on a bundle, even on short notice. Expedia typically has an Unreal Deal and a Deal of the Day, which could include a free night at a hotel or a free flight. It might even include a $200 resort credit. Deals may not qualify for Expedia’s 24-hour cancellation policy, so we recommend researching a property thoroughly before committing.
Apple Vacations is ideal for anyone looking to book a trip in advance. They have a smaller selection of properties available at discounted rates, so they can get booked up quickly. While Apple Vacations’ prices were a bit higher, they include round trip airport transfers and on-site customer service representatives. If you find the same package on a competitor’s site at a lower rate, Apple Vacations will match it. It’s best to thoroughly research a hotel before booking, as Apple Vacations’ cancellation policy is limited unless you purchase their trip insurance.
