No one knows the Dominican Republic like Apple Vacations. A pioneer in the development of tourism to the D.R., Apple Vacations introduced American travelers to this colorful vacation paradise in the 1990’s.  By 2007, Apple Vacations had delivered one million passengers to Punta Cana on USA3000, its flagship airline, and more than two million vacationers to the Dominican Republic overall.

Today, Apple Vacations is the world’s largest vacation company to the Dominican Republic, operating 850 exclusive vacation flights annually from U.S. cities throughout the East, Midwest and Texas, in addition to nationwide scheduled airline service. In 2009, Apple Vacations was presented with the Dominican Republic’s Tourism Award for its outstanding contributions to the development of tourism.

There's a reason why Punta Cana is at the top of travel wish lists:
• Modern and luxurious resorts and spas
• 19 amazing golf courses designed by legends Pete Dye, P.B. Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Robert Trent Jones, Gary Player, Tom Fazio and Nick Faldo
• Exceptional watersports like sport-fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving
• Enticing restaurants and vibrant nightlife
• Shopping, local handicrafts and art
• The spirit and charm of the Dominican culture
• And 40 miles of spectacular sugar white beaches
