The Dominican Republic
Our Island Nation

Island of Hispaniola

The Dominican Republic is our island nation of choice with vast diversity and charm.

The DR occupies about 2/3rds of Hispaniola, the second largest Caribbean island (after Cuba).
Haiti occupies the other third.

Their border runs along the mountain range which separates them.

The breathtaking views and rich culture of this country have delighted many visitors. The Dominican people are also very warm and hospitable to guests, making this place an ideal destination for travelers.
