Dominican Republic Tourism
Spectacular Beaches


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.

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.
