All-you-can-eat buffets, endless drinks, white-sand beaches — what's not to love about vacations in the DR? And no matter your budget, we're sure you can locate affordable all-inclusive Dominican Republic vacation packages — that is, if you follow our handy tips below!

Consider all your options

When searching for an all-inclusive Dominican Republic vacation package, you might think Punta Cana is your only choice. Not so! The DR is home to several tourist towns with all-inclusive resorts. On the north coast there's Puerto Plata, home to beautiful Cofresi Beach and Playa Dorada, plus the only aerial tramway in the Caribbean, offering stunning coastal views.

Along the country's south coast, heading east from Santo Domingo, you can find a handful of resorts to choose from in beach towns like Boca Chica, Juan Dolio and La Romana, many of which are more affordable than those in Punta Cana. If you decide to stay at a resort that isn't all-inclusive, you'll find even more savings.

Save your trip for the summer

Like most Caribbean destinations, the Dominican Republic has a high season and a low season, the timing of which has more to do with cold winter temperatures in North America and Europe than with any significant change in weather in the DR.

Hotel rates drop dramatically in the summer months, extending in some cases into the fall, which means that your total all-inclusive vacation package costs will come down starting in May. And while it will be a few degrees hotter in the Dominican Republic, with occasional showers, for the most part you can count on blue skies any time of year.

Make it a weekday trip

Want to bring costs down even more? Opt to depart and return during the week, when both flights and hotels are less expensive. And avoid major holidays or events to secure the best resort and airfare rates. Keeping your trip to four or five days will further ensure you'll find a good selection of all-inclusive vacation packages that fit your budget.
