Dominican Republic Travel Guide Caribbean Area Caribbean Area | Gayot
Since 1969, restaurant, hotel, travel & other witty reviews by a handpicked, worldwide team of discerning professionals—and your views, too.


If the history of the Dominican Republic does not create a reason to visit, surely the sandy beaches, crystal clear oceans and vibrant culture will do the trick. The country's traditions extend back hundreds of years. It is a country of welcoming, smiling faces, great food, and lively dancing — most notably, Merengue and the Bachata. Time your visit to see the Carnivale de La Vega, a colorful parade of masks and costumes, or stumble across a pick-up game of baseball — the most obsessed-over sport in the country.
