Dominican Republic, a world-famous magnet for sun worshippers and a celebrated baseball powerhouse, is the Caribbean’s most visited tourist destination – yet it still holds plenty of surprises. There’s the geographic diversity, for starters – how many outsiders know that the country boasts five distinct mountain ranges, seemingly endless swathes of rainforest, regions of cactus-strewn semi-desert, plus the Caribbean’s largest metropolis, highest peak and biggest lake? Or that the capital, Santo Domingo, is the oldest colonial city in the Americas, home to the continent’s first cathedral, university and hospital?
We’re now covering more of the Dominican Republic than ever before – north to south, east to west. To get you off the beaten track, behind the scenes and really in the thick of the destination that’s calling you.
