Tourism and Culture


Dominican Republic's culture is the result of an unlikely mixture of influences of European, African, and native Taíno Indian influences. These distinct cultures still drive the social identity of the people today. Every aspect of their food, music, art, sports and religion provides a unique insight into the development of their country. In a single day you can experience both ancient and modern cultures from around the globe. Dominicans share the island of Hispaniola with neighboring Haiti, and the mixture of these peoples and their cultures provides a massive influence on contemporary Dominican life.


The Dominican Republic is more than a tropical destination; it is not only beautiful but also enigmatic, not only evocative but also livable. It is a welcoming nation, a country of contrasts, landscapes, and colors, with friendly and easygoing people. Its human capital is one of the main reasons why more than 4.5 million tourists feel at home here and usually want to return. Visiting the Dominican Republic and experiencing the most metaphorical aspect found between the urban street life of Santo Domingo and the rural villages, or visiting the unique and pristine beaches, will definitely set a before and after in your life. Welcome to the birthplace of the Americas and discover the fascinating secret of the Caribbean.
