About me

THE HISTORY

The Dominican Republic is where the European colonization of the Americas first began which would change the trajectory of the world. In addition to being the first European colony, it would also suffer the first genocide of Tainos and the first arrival of an enslaved African which ignited the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. This impactful history has also cultivated a unique cultural fusion of Afro-Indigenous-Iberian influences.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC CULTURE & HISTORY
Did you know?

The Dominican Republic is often referred to as mini-continent because the island is home to diverse types of climates and topographies ranging from arid desert to chilly pine-studded mountains.

 

DOMINICAN OUTDOORS

The “Dominican Republic has it all” is the country’s tourism slogan; and for good reason. We have desert dunes, freezing cold steppes, lush jungles, beaches, waterfalls and a little bit of everything else.

Fun fact: The Dominican Republic is also home to the tallest peak the Caribbean (el Pico Duarte which you can also hike) and the lowest point in the Caribbean: Lago Enriquillo.
