If you're wanting to find a property in the Dominican Republic with an easy-going attitude as well as plenty of recreational options, then Las Canas could be exactly what you've been searching for. Here, the staff can help you choose from quite a few exciting recreation opportunities, which makes this accommodation all the more desirable.

Las Canas has one pool. Swimming may not be at the top of your to-do list, but it can be a simple enough way to beat the afternoon heat. In truth, even when staying at a property with a pool, a lot of guests spend so much time on the Dominican Republic's beaches that they don't use the hotel's pool at all. The nearest beach to the property is Playa Sousa. A long soak in the whirlpool on-location is another way to spend time in the water.


Although Las Canas doesn't have a golf course on the property, you may be able to arrange some playing time nearby. There are two golf courses within visiting distance of Las Canas. These are Playa Dorada Golf Course and Costa Azul. The most proximate of your choices is Playa Dorada Golf Course. There are 18 holes at this course. This par 72 course has a total length of 6309 yards. If you'd like to see if it is possible to schedule a tee time, you can call the course at (809) 320-4262.


While visiting the Dominican Republic you may want to try out a new recreational sport. There are a variety of different options available here, so you're sure to find an aquatic activity you enjoy, even if you've never done it before. This list shows the watersports available at Las Canas:
