IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
The Dominican Republic is part of the Greater Antilles archipelago located in the Caribbean region. The western islands are occupied by the nation of Haiti, making Hispaniola one of two Caribbean islands, along with Saint Martin, that are shared by two countries. The Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba), covering 48,445 square kilometres and home to an estimated 10 million people.
The Dominican Republic has a tropical climate and the annual average temperature is 25 °C.
The Dominican Republic is known as a beautiful beach destination, but the country is also a blend of culture, history and stunning natural beauty. The main tourist magnets are the areas around Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, La Romana, and Samaná. However, the country’s cultural highlights are in the capital, Santo Domingo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition to well-developed beach resorts and world-class golf courses, the Dominican Republic is home to amazing coral reefs, waterfalls, jungles, secluded islands, pine forests and the highest peaks in the Caribbean. Definitely worth a visit!
