Dominican Republic occupies the bulk of "La Española" in the archipelago of the Greater Antilles. In the western part of the island you'll find Haiti. To the south the Caribbean Sea washes the shores of Dominican Republic and to the north the Atlantic Ocean. The Mona Passage to the east is the only thing that separates the country from Puerto Rico.
The Dominican economy is the second largest in the Caribbean and although it is famous for being a sugar exporter, today the most important industry is tourism. Do not miss Santo Domingo or Punta Cana! The island has a warm climate all year round, heavenly beaches and its friendly people and cultural heritage make Dominican Republic the ideal place to begin your adventure and experience first hand its culture.
