The Dominican Republic has beautiful mountain scenery, desert scrubland, fascinating colonial architecture and amazing beaches which all contribute to making it the most geographically diverse country in the Caribbean. It claims a roller-coaster past which is most evident from the architectural design of its towns and cities. If its romance you’re looking for in the Dominican Republic then Santo Domingo’s Zona Colonial is where you need to be when you visit here where you will find ancient monasteries that have been restored and cobblestone streets. Other cities of interest include Puerto Plata and Santiago which are filled with monuments and scars of long years of misrule. A drive along the rural streets of the Dominican Republic will take you past coconut sellers and people playing dominoes. But to truly enjoy the hospitality of the locals and discover the country’s true appeal you must venture into the villages.
Dominicans truly know how to party, the evidence for this is the all-night Merengue that emanates from tiny corner shops and the Carnival celebrations that take place all over the country. Joining in on these festivities are a great way to learn about the culture of the Dominican Republic. While the country has miles and miles of coastline which define it, some of it is lined with palm trees and white sand while other parts have rocky cliffs, dunes and mangrove lagoons. Its waters are home to migrating Humpback Whales and the sea here is always the common aspect be it a fishing village or a tourist spot with beautiful blue waters. The physical and cultural complexity of the Dominican Republic truly cannot be found on other islands.
