The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti, lying west of Puerto Rico and east of Cuba and Jamaica. When Christopher Columbus landed on this lush back in 1492 he called it "beautiful island paradise with high forested mountains and large river valleys."
With its rich history, the Dominican Republic is a treasure trove of archaeological sites and museums. The arts and culture scene in the DR is vibrant; chances are, on your tropical vacation you'll enjoy at least one performance of merengue, the national dance, or bachata, which features slower steps. And savor the mix of flavors in the local cuisine, which stems from native Antillean and hearty Creole recipes.
Of course, you can enjoy many exciting typical island activities while you are in the Dominican Republic, including windsurfing, snorkeling, horseback riding, fishing and golf. Save some time on your itinerary for shopping and picking up some truly unique souvenirs: exquisite amber jewelry, sweet rum distilled on the island, or perhaps some cigars. After all, the DR is the largest producer of cigars in the world!
