DISCOVER THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC WITH DON QUIJOTE

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 800 miles of pristine coastline, you will feel like you've been transported to a tropical paradise, with white sandy beaches, blue waters and palm trees galore. The expanse of untouched land on the island makes it a perfect haven for wildlife and in its crystal waters you can enjoy some of the very best snorkeling and scuba diving around, all while marveling at the brightly colored wonders that live beneath the waves. The Dominican Republic is a cultural melting pot, its culture largely inspired by European, African and indigenous Taíno influences. The result is a unique and hybrid culture, art and cuisine. 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. Thus, the island has claim to having one of the oldest cities in the New World – the capital city of Santo Domingo. Its cobblestone streets and historic 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 history, incredible biodiversity and landscapes, delicious cuisine and vibrant people, the Dominican Republic has an infinite amount of cultural immersion experiences to offer, making it a truly tropical and cultural paradise.
