Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic shares the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola, the second largest island n the Caribbean afer Cuba, with its western neighbour, Haiti. The country enjoys an idyllic year round climate averaging 25º degrees Celsius, over 1,000 miles of palm fringed white, brown and black sand lbeaches and some of the best value all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. As a consequence the Dominican Republic has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the region, centred upon the thriving resorts of Punta Cana and Santo Domingo. First visited by Chrisopher Columbus in 1492 the Dominican Republic was eventually colonised by the Spanish. Today the locals enjoy a reputation for welcoming hospitality and a charismatic and enegetic lifestyle exemplified by the popular and sensuous local dance, the Merengue. The country's wild and varied landscape features a mountainous interior covered in verdant tropical rainforest. It is rich in flora and fauna with over 29 endemic bird species, wild orchids and cascading rivers.
