The Dominican Republic is a Caribbean country that occupies the eastern two-thirds of the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. The western one-third of Hispaniola is occupied by the country of Haiti. To the north lies the North Atlantic Ocean, while the Caribbean Sea lies to the south. The Dominican Republic is generally a safe country (though this is not always the case). The major cities of Santo Domingo and Santiago have experienced the growth of a thriving middle class, however, the Dominican Republic remains a third world country and poverty is still rampant so you need to take common sense precautions.

There is a remarkable range of accommodations on offer including chain hotels, guest houses, self catering accommodation, exclusive boutique hotels and amazing mega resorts that have brought the all-inclusive hotel to the next level of luxury. Trendy restaurants, art galleries and, boutique hotels make Santo Domingo a superb urban vacation destination. Food prices are higher, which means prices at all-inclusive resorts can be expensive; however, there are plenty of bargains to be had. Even the new boutique hotels are still well priced for the Caribbean.
