You Must Give the Dominican Republic a Closer Look!

If you are considering a Caribbean getaway, then you must give the Dominican Republic a closer look.

Most people are familiar with popular Caribbean destinations such as Aruba, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Puerto Rico.  While those places still remain hot destinations, the Dominican Republic (D.R.) is now the top place to visit in the Caribbean.

In 2013, nearly 5 million tourists visited the D.R. compared to 2 million going to Jamaica.

What is the great pull in the Dominican Republic?  There are several things that make the country so “hot."  Visitors can expect to find 1,000 miles of beaches, pristine golf courses, luxury resorts, budget hotels, popular all-inclusive properties, a rich combination of history and modern times, great cuisines, and an active nightlife.  Plus, the D.R. has seven international airports servicing the island.

Most of the visitors to the D.R. are from North America (USA and Canada), but there is also a large percentage from Europe.

For those who may be wondering where this country is, the Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti.  The island, Hispaniola, is located southeast of Cuba and not far from the United States.  While Haiti has been impoverished for years, her neighbor has seen a little opposite.  There is activity everywhere as the tourist industry works to improve roads, amenities, attractions, and top hotel chains erect luxury properties.

(However, there is poverty on the island.)

If you haven’t yet done so, put the Dominican Republic on your list of must-go Caribbean vacation spots.

Go have fun!

Snorkelling is a must -- the underwater life is fantastic! The people there are so friendly, too. I also had my hair beaded when I was there and it's great ... however, don't go to a salon to get this done because it will be too expensive. Instead, barter with anyone offering it on beaches, where I got mine done.
