I love the Dominican Republic Tourism. I visited this great Spanish speaking country dozens of times while living in Puerto Rico.
The Beaches are among the best in the Caribbean, the food, the fun, the music and above all the great 'Dominicanos" will make from your vacation a real dream that you will cherish for years and I am sure you'll come back and back again like I did.

Santo Domingo Capital of the Republica Dominicana
If you have a long time for vacation you would be able to explore the country and its regions. But if what you have is a short time to spend, then you’ll have to decide where to go and dedicate your visit to this particular region.

Many charter and regular schedule airlines offer domestic flights between the important cities and beaches.
Major international companies have their branches all over the Republic. Keep in mind that local companies may be less expensive. Being the Republica Dominicana so vast, renting a car could be a great idea.
By bus There are many well established regular bus companies offering inter-urban service.
Dominican Republic Flag
A centered white cross that extends to the edges divides the flag into four rectangles - the top ones are blue and red, and the bottom ones are red and blue.
A small coat of arms featuring a shield supported by an olive branch and a palm branch is at the center of the cross.
Dominican Republic Map
The Dominican Republic occupies two thirds of the island of Hispaniola with Haiti. It is the second largest of the Four Greater Antilles, smaller than Cuba and larger than Jamaica and Puerto Rico.
When we lived in Puerto Rico, 45 minutes away from The Republica Dominicana, we used to fly there constantly, sometimes for a couple of days to enjoy the food, the music and the people of this sister Republic.
