Type "paradise" into any search engine, and you'll find thousands of photos of palm trees dangling over white-sand beaches that fade into translucent blue waters. Or as residents of Punta Cana call it, home. Set on the far eastern shores of the Dominican Republic, this Caribbean resort town has garnered worldwide renown for its abundant sunshine, uncrowded beaches, and sprawling gardens. This, courtesy of Apple Vacations, is the stuff heaven is made of.

Situated smack in the middle of it all is the IBEROSTAR Dominicana Hotel, an all-inclusive 506-room resort surrounded by Eden-esque tropical gardens. Besides the white sand and 80-degree waters of Playa Bávaro, you'll have unfettered access to all the resort offers: nightclubs, casinos, an 18-hole golf course, a scuba and snorkeling center, a large retail center, and live entertainment for both adults and children. There's no shortage of epicurean indulgence here, either, with six à la carte restaurants serving a global array of cuisine, two international buffets, and a few bars, including a sports bar and restaurant. And it's all less than 25 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport and about 45 minutes from La Romana International Airport.

Each of 160 tile-floor Junior Suites is appointed with two double beds or one king-size bed, a balcony or terrace, air-conditioning, an LCD satellite TV, and a mini-fridge stocked daily with soft drinks, beer, and water.

But it's not all sun, sand, and sea here in paradise: You'll also be treated to a guided shopping excursion for two. Hunt for locally made arts, crafts, and jewelry; sample the finest cigars; sip some local rum; and visit a chocolate factory where you can participate in chocolate-making classes.
