The Dominican Republic is known for its sprawling golf courses and palm tree lined beaches, including the top-ranked Bavaro Beach. It offers a large number of resorts, most of which are located in Punta Cana, making it a great value for your destination wedding of 20 or more guests, as it offers a wide range of prices. If nightlife is important to you, you should choose a resort with a lot of on-site activities and entertainment — you will not find the lively downtown atmosphere as you would in other destinations, but there are areas that offer bars, restaurants, and shows. The Dominican Republic has diverse landscapes, offering mountainous terrain, desert, and expansive white-sand beaches. Dominican culture can be infused into your wedding experience by adding the Caribbean-inspired cuisine, hand-rolled cigars, and local rum. Symbolic same-sex ceremonies are permitted here, but they must be performed on private property (which many resorts are entitled too).

"Let me just say I have absolutely no idea why I have been planning my own vacations before being recommended Destify. Cassandra Everett made the experience for a trip to Punta Cana the easiest/most enjoyable experience I have ever had. All responses were quick and steps ahead of any concerns I may have even thought about. Please if your planing any sort of vacation ask for Cassandra you will not regret it."
"Ann Williams was my travel agent for my bachelor party trip to Punta Cana, DR. Ann was awesome and very understanding, as my mind was constantly changing because of bad media. Ann reassured me that I was going to have a great time, and I did. It was a very safe trip, and The Royalton resort was one of the best resorts that I’ve stayed at. Thanks to her I was able to get a large number of my friends to another country under safe and affordable conditions. My fiancée is also using Ann for her bachelorette party trip to Cabo’s San Lucas in a few weeks. We plan on using Ann’s services again for our honeymoon, would highly recommend her as a travel agent!"
