Dominican Republic

About Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic, which shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, features 1,000 miles of sugary white-sand beaches shaded by coconut palms. But it is not just a beach destination, as it offers mountainous regions including the Caribbean's highest mountain, Pico Duarte, and other natural wonders including Lake Enriquillo, the Caribbean's largest lake and lowest elevation. Quisqueya, as Dominicans often call their country, also features great biological diversity. The western side is more developed, than the eastern part, known as "Santo Domingo Oriental." Santo Domingo's most important tourist destination is the Zona Colonial or Colonial Zone, on the Ozama's western bank facing the Caribbean Sea. The north coast also features a wide array of natural environments, including dense jungles, waterfalls, mountains and golden-sand beaches. Visitors can find multiple active pursuits, including diving, snorkeling, whitewater rafting, tubing, cascading, surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, bird-watching, rock climbing, caving, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, mountain biking and sandboarding.
