The Dominican

The Dominican Republic is a very beautiful and proud country with a rich history and culture.
Join us in exploring everything Dominican, from its friendly people and colorful customs, to its breathtaking mountains and pristine beaches.

All Things Dominican

The Dominican Republic has a rich history going back to long before Spanish colonization. Prior to 1492, the indigenous inhabitants, the Taino divided the island into five chiefdoms and territories. The Dominican Republic was explored by Christopher Columbus on his first voyage in 1492. Columbus knew he was on to something good when he spotted a beautiful coral-rimmed island. He named it Las Espanola, and his son, Diego, was its first viceroy. The capital, Santo Domingo, founded in 1496, is the oldest European settlement in the Western hemisphere.

The Dominican Flora and Fauna

The richness of Dominican Republic is not limited to the immense quantity of palm and coconut trees that decorates the beaches of this beautiful island: it also has more than five thousand species of flowers, all more exotic than the others.


Dominican Republic is one of the few countries in the Caribbean that climate is quiet varied, in order to cultivate the flowers: roses, carnations, jasmines, and tulips grown in the small city of Constanza, the highest point of the island.  

Dominican Beaches

The Dominican is surrounded by over 250 miles of coastline. Along the coastline you will find miles long tranquil beaches with soft sand, crystal water and tropical palms.
