Your glorious holiday tan is easily earned at the Dominican Republic resort of Juan Dolio, where life is a little more peaceful than in the throbbing capital, Santo Domingo.
And The Co-operative Travel can help you experience the delights of a Juan Dolio package holiday, or all-inclusive holiday, as well as possibly a winter break - because the temperatures here stay around 30 degrees C all year round.
Juan Dolio has grown into a vibrant destination, yet it is still possible to find peace and an idyllic escape. Getting around on foot is the easiest way to explore - it's what everybody here does, and will allow you to discover the many small shops, fine restaurants and vibrant bars and discos where the cool vibes of salsa and merengue fill the air until the early hours.
For a total escape, there are trips to offshore islands to enjoy, while Altos De Chavon artists' village is where you're guaranteed to pick up some lasting souvenirs.
The beaches have that typically tropical flavour, with fine, white sand edged by clear blue waters which are perfect for many pursuits including fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling. The island also boasts a selection of golf courses, with Juan Dolio the site for one of the finest 18-hole courses on the island.
Evening's in Juan Dolio are restrained affairs - time for chilling and taking it easy. If it's a more uptempo nightlife you're after, heading into Santa Domingo is your best bet.
The pictures you'll have seen of the Dominican Republic portray those gorgeous pale sands, shimmering waters and palm trees. The reality in Juan Dolio is exactly like that.
