The salsa clubs of the Dominican Republic’s capital Santo Domingo are sweaty, sexy and rum-soaked, so dust off those dancing shoes and get out on the floor. Along with salsa, you’ll find upbeat merengue and sultry bachata, a slower style of dance that could put you in danger of dislocating a hip!
Don’t be surprised to see a party spill out onto the street, either. In this city, you’re just as likely to see couples dancing on the side walk, while the older generation favour setting the world to rights with a bottle of rum and a few plastic chairs.
If you’re after a taste of the Dominican Republic’s authentic nightlife, pull up a seat, pour a shot of rum and join the party.
Punta Cana is like Disney World for adults, offering every kind of entertainment under the Caribbean sun. If you’re looking for full-on entertainment and nightlife in the Dominican Republic, you’ve come to the right place.
All-inclusive resorts stage traditional shows on a nightly basis, with twirling dancers and flamboyant costumes, while all kinds of discos thump out beats into the wee hours. Feeling lucky? Join the high rollers at one of the Dominican Republic’s casinos and take in one of the resident cabaret shows at the same time. Even if you lose a few quid, the feathers and sequins will soon cheer you up.
Punta Cana might put on a good show, but the Samaná Peninsula offers a more authentic night out in the Dominican Republic. This string of fishing villages and laidback resorts is somewhere to linger over a meal at a traditional restaurant packed with locals, listen to merengue music seep out from under doorways and take a moonlit stroll along the Malecón.
Still a wonderfully underdeveloped part of the Dominican Republic, Dominicans consider the nightlife here to be pretty boring, but if you’re looking for some tropical time out with added local spirit, there’s nowhere better.
