The Dominican Republic borders Haiti on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. In the Dominican Republic you can experience the very best of what the Caribbean has to offer. With 900 miles of unspoiled coastline you will feel like you are in tropical paradise, with white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and palm trees galore. The lack of development on the island makes it a perfect haven for wildlife and in its crystal waters you can enjoy some of the very best snorkelling and scuba-diving around whilst marvelling at the technicoloured wonders that live beneath the waves. The Dominican Republic is a cultural melting pot comprising many European and African influences. The result is an exciting mix. One of the most famous cultural exports is Merengue music, a fast and lively dance beat that from its traditional roots has gone on to take the world by storm.
When Spanish sailors began to explore the New World around the 15th century the Dominican Republic was one of the first places they settled. As a result, the island has claim to one of the oldest cities in the New World in Santo Domingo, where the cobbled streets and original buildings are abundant with colonial charm. It is a city of firsts, boasting the first hospital, the first sugar mill, and the first cathedral on this side of the world. With its rich and eventful history the Dominican Republic has more to offer than other countries in the Caribbean, making it a truly tropical and cultural paradise.
