9. Dominican Republic

The rand is 8% stronger against the Dominican peso than it was last year.

  • How much am I saving? Take away an extra 270 Dominican pesos for every R1 000. That’s more than enough to have a taxi on standby for an hour.
  • What is there to do in the Dominican Republic? This country is all about natural diversity – from lush landscapes to pristine beaches, this destination has it all. When you get tired of relaxing on the beach, stretch your legs in town and explore the colonial architecture. Check out flights here.
