The Dominican Republic occupies two-thirds of Hispaniola Island, the second largest nation in the Caribbean. Located in the Caribbean Sea, it covers an area of 18,815 square miles with a population of 7.5 million. The capital, Santo Domingo, is the most populated city with 2.5 million people.



Punta Cana is located on "La Altagracia" province, on the south-eastern portion of the country. La Altagracia is home to two national parks, the famous Punta Cana resort area, and Isla Saona. The capital city is Higuey. Major towns are Nisibon, Punta Cana, San Rafael de Yuma.From Punta Cana to Macao, this is a stretch of the best beaches of the Caribbean Region.



Its clear waters, pearl white sand beaches and resorts built around lagoons and ponds make this area a real paradise. Manati Park is an ecological park and a replica of a Taino village, the natural habitat of the native Indians of this island.

    What a lovely walk down Memory Lane....D.R. is a really special place. I wish more Europeans would consider it as a wonderful alternative to Cuba. The Dominican economy sure could use the help. Bravo!!!
