Sightseeing is a great place to start, with a visit to Altos de Chavon, a 15th century colonial village that is also a great place to do some shopping, at the top of the list.  There is also a Roman Cigar Factory that offer tours, hiking paths through a national park, tennis courts, and a few spas for a bit of pampering.  If the sea is calling your name, the diving and snorkeling opportunities are outstanding, and deep sea fishing is a great activity as well.
