Romantic Locations in the Dominican Republic

2. Altos de Chavón

This charming Mediterranean-style village located near La Romana is perched high above the Chavón River, offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Consider proposing in the cobblestone streets of the village or at the picturesque amphitheater overlooking the river.

3. Saona Island

Take a romantic boat trip to Saona Island, a tropical paradise with palm-fringed beaches and crystal-clear waters. Consider proposing on a secluded stretch of beach or during a private picnic overlooking the sea.


4. Los Haitises National Park

This protected area on the northeastern coast of the Dominican Republic is known for its dramatic limestone karsts, mangrove forests, and rich biodiversity. Consider proposing during a boat tour of the park, with the stunning natural scenery all around you.


5. Santo Domingo

The historic Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo, with its charming old streets and beautiful Spanish colonial architecture, offers a unique backdrop for a proposal. The area's vibrant culture and history make it a memorable location. The Zona Colonial, the historical area of Santo Domingo, is one of the safest parts of the city for tourists.


Beautiful Peninsulas and Mountains

6. Samana Peninsula

This area is particularly scenic with lush landscapes and dramatic coastlines. A proposal at the top of Salto El Limón waterfall or on a secluded beach in Las Galeras would be breathtaking.


7. Jarabacoa

For a mountainous retreat, Jarabacoa offers lush green landscapes and the opportunity to propose amidst nature, perhaps next to a beautiful waterfall or after a hike in the Central Mountain Range.


8. Pico Duarte

For the adventurous couple, a hike to the top of Pico Duarte, the highest peak in the Caribbean, could culminate in a dramatic proposal with panoramic views over the island at sunrise.
