Dominican Republic is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti to the west. It is known for its beaches, resorts and golf areas. Its terrain includes tropical forests, savanna and highlands, including Pico Duarte, the highest mountain in the Caribbean. The capital Santo Domingo has Spanish-style elements, such as the Gothic-style Primada de América Cathedral, which is 5 centuries old, in its Zona Colonial district.
Every trip or excursion is an adventure, but in some the adrenaline rush exceeds expectations. Venturing on a good safari, launching ourselves through a great zip line, enjoying a swim in a cavern or cenote or a horseback ride to through the rural landscape or some beautiful beach of a Caribbean island are some of the experiences that we offer.
Almost all travel programs are based on some cultural complement. Culture is a fundamental part of the idiosyncrasy of peoples. Starting with music, dance or theater as the most popular artistic expressions and continuing to culinary culture and popular wisdom.
Almost all of our offers have an educational component. Starting from the premise that education is fed by everything that gives us some knowledge, historical-cultural trips can also be considered educational trips. Whenever the journey through different experiences brings new elements to our general or specific knowledge, it will be an educational journey.
We offer the best excursions and activities in the Dominican Republic and Cuba. If you like adventure, speedboat rides, and experiencing the adrenaline of a horseback ride, the Dominican Republic has it all. If you want to enjoy good music and dance, historical places, excellent concerts and a different but beautiful country, Cuba is waiting for you.
At Summitour we offer many excursions and escort tours to historical places in each destination where we go. In each country in which we specialize we have offers to sites that are a World Heritage Site, or that have been relevant at some point in ancient or modern history. With Summitour, your reunion with history is possible.
Our nightlife activities and the shows that we offer to our clients are carefully selected in each destination. We try that entertainment combines fun with a quota of cultural contribution in terms of music, dances, circus shows, in short, that your night becomes a truly special and exclusive event.
Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving where the diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater.Scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater independence and freedom of movement than surface-supplied divers, and longer underwater endurance than breath-hold divers. Open circuit scuba systems discharge the breathing gas into the environment as it is exhaled, and consist of one or more diving cylinders containing breathing gas at high pressure which is supplied to the diver through a regulator.
They may include additional cylinders for range extension, decompression gas or emergency breathing gas. Closed-circuit or semi-closed circuit rebreather scuba systems allow recycling of exhaled gases. The volume of gas used is reduced compared to that of open circuit, so a smaller cylinder or cylinders may be used for an equivalent dive duration. Rebreathers extend the time spent underwater compared to open circuit for the same gas consumption; they produce fewer bubbles and less noise than open circuit scuba which makes them attractive to covert military divers to avoid detection, scientific divers to avoid disturbing marine animals, and media divers to avoid bubble interference.
