Dominican Republic at a Glance

The Dominican Republic is located on the Island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Region and was explored by Christopher Columbus in 1492. The North Atlantic Ocean lies to the north while the Caribbean Sea is to the south. Having a total area of 48,442 square kilometres and a population of around 10 million people, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation. After experiencing turmoil and instability for a long period of time, the country has progressed towards representative democracy since 1996.


Over the past few years, the Dominican Republic has become the number one tourist destination in the Caribbean. The reason for this growth in popularity is the Dominican Republic’s biological and natural diversity as it has the largest lake and the highest mountain in the Caribbean, as well as the lowest elevation in the region and beautiful golf courses. Tourists can see the urban life which is a collage of cultures, stay at beautiful beach resorts or head inwards while enjoying the sugar plantation in the country side. Travellers on a low budget along with those who are looking for a luxurious holiday will have plenty of options available to them in the Dominican Republic.
