Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in the Dominican Republic is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It's the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
The Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti and is the second largest country in the Caribbean. It's also home to the Caribbean's largest city, Santo Domingo, which is served by Las Américas International Airport. With a much more varied landscape than neighbouring Haiti, it has four mountain ranges plus deserts, savannahs, and numerous lakes and lagoons. With so much to discover, exploring the Dominican Republic by car is a must.
The Dominican Republic is noted for its superb golf courses, many of them designed by big names in the sport, and for its excellent baseball teams, which are well worth watching. Visitors can also visit coffee plantations and sample the local beans - or visit sugar plantations and sample the local rum.There are excellent museums and some good local art galleries in Santo Domingo, plus, of course, there are the stunning beaches that have made it so popular as a holiday destination. Wide expanses of sand are framed by gently swaying palms, and in certain places, the sea is perfect for windsurfing and kite boarding. Sailing is popular and the island hosts internationally acclaimed fishing competitions. In the evenings, you'll find plenty of great restaurants to try, but the seafood is usually the best, and afterwards, you can take your pick of international-style nightclubs or bars and dancehalls playing Latin music.
Getting between the major towns of the Dominican Republic is easy, with three well maintained highways connecting them, but travel to outlying areas can be more difficult and not all the country's roads are in good condition. Driving here can sometimes be challenging, so getting a good insurance policy from your car rental outlet can protect you from this. If you drive carefully and take sensible precautions, however, you should be able to enjoy your holiday in the Dominican Republic without any problems.
