About Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic, located in the eastern part of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean, is situated west of Puerto Rico and east of Cuba and Jamaica. It shares a maritime border with Venezuela to the south and shares its western border with Haiti. The capital, Santo Domingo, was the first European settlement in the Americas, and today is a major tourism hub.
Administratively, the Dominican Republic consists of 32 provinces and one capital. Other significant cities outside the capital include Punta Cana, Saona Island, and Cabarete. While the official language is Spanish, the official currency is the Dominican Peso, though some areas also use the East Caribbean Dollar. The country's extensive beaches, spanning kilometers, attract significant tourist attention. The well-developed tourism industry sustains a considerable portion of the local population. As the Caribbean's prized tourist destination, the Dominican Republic ranks high economically among Caribbean countries.
Apart from tourism, other major sectors supporting livelihoods are agriculture and livestock. The country's main agricultural exports include sugar, coffee, and tobacco. The tropical climate in the Dominican Republic results in limited seasonal changes, with August being the warmest month. The country experiences two rainy seasons: from October to May in the north and from May to October in the south, with a hurricane season from June to September. The average temperature ranges from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.
The Dominican Republic, with its vibrant culture, hosts festivals that attract tourists, especially from other Caribbean countries. Key festivals include the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival in the capital every November and the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival in Cabarete, also held annually in November. The country's Independence Day on February 27th features lively celebrations.
Traditional Dominican dishes are rich in onions, garlic, and local spices. Rice is a prominent feature, often served with various ingredients like corn and peas, accompanying almost every meat dish. Being a Caribbean nation, shellfish and other seafood are widely consumed.
Visitors can also taste Mangu, a mashed plantain dish, and other famous tropical fruits and fruit cocktails. The country's production and export of rum and tobacco are also of great interest to tourists, contributing significantly to the local economy.
