DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Things to do - general
When thinking of the Dominican Republic, your mind naturally conjures up holidays, white beaches and blue seas, but it is also the country where the famous singer and artist Juan Luis Guerra was born. The island is located in the Caribbean Sea and is one of the two countries on the island of Hispaniola, the other being Haiti. Most hotels are situated in the country’s capital of Santo Domingo, in Punta Cana and in Puerto Plata. The Dominican Republic has over 30 national parks and nature reserves, of which Jaragua is most popular with tourists. The country is also home to the Damajagua Falls, a system of 27 waterfalls, while the interior is dominated by the Pico Duarte peak of 3,175 metres.

SANTO DOMINGO
The old city centre of Santo Domingo was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. The city is divided in two parts by the Ozama River. Santo Domingo is overflowing with things to see, including the Acuario Nacional, a splendid aquarium with many different kinds of tropical fish that is a premier spot to visit with the children. At a distance of 5 km from the city lie the famous Los Tres Ojos, three lakes in an open limestone cave formed by a collapse of underground caves. The Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo university in Santo Domingo is renowned around the world. Santo Domingo also features a number of markets focusing mainly on the tourist industry that allow you to buy many different souvenirs.
