You will fall in love with the spirited Dominican people we will see.
The Dominican Republic is located on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, which it shares with Haiti. The island is full of mountains and beaches, waterfalls and forests, and a moderate tropical climate of year-round warm and humid conditions, making it a top tourist destination in the Caribbean.
After more than 300 years of Spanish rule, the country declared independence in 1821. Over the next 150 years, there were civil wars, invasions, occupations, presidential assassinations, a military coup, and dictatorships, but the country has since 1978 had a stable representative democracy.
Hospitals and trained medical personnel are available only in the larger cities. Unsanitary water, inadequate housing and health services, and poor nutrition undermine health conditions among the poor. As a result, infectious and parasitic diseases are common and the infant mortality rate is high.
Fun Dominican Facts:
The daily lunch dish of rice, beans, and meat is named after the national flag – La Bandera Dominicana.
The cuisine includes peppers, fresh seafood, tropical fruits, queso fresco, and fried plantains.
Exports include gold, tobacco, bananas, sugar, coffee, and chocolate.
Noted fashion designer Oscar de la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic.
95% of the population consider themselves Christians, with most claiming to be Roman Catholic.
The Dominican Republic has the second highest number of Major League Baseball players after the United States.
The island of Hispaniola was the first place in the New World to be settled by Europeans. The first cathedral, hospital, and university in the Americas were founded in what is now the capital city, Santo Domingo.
The country’s currency is the Dominican peso – DOP or RD$.
The Dominican Republic is home to both the highest peak in the Caribbean and the lowest point in the Caribbean.
With a diversity of African, European and Taíno ethnicities, you can expect Dominican culture to be vibrant, colorful, and spicy.
