Merengue and Bachata are heard everywhere in a country where dancing comes as natural as walking. The Dominicans are very happy people and like to show of this happiness by their constant smile and open friendliness. But of course you primarily go for the beaches and palm trees. Here too the Dominican Republic stands out from the crowd.  The beaches are endless with coconut palms as far as the eye can see, and no construction much higher than them to make sure the views are perfect.  Most beaches are protected by long stretches of reefs perfect for snorkeling. Inland nature is also amazing; with very green country side, dotted by houses of all colors in the rainbow and the highest mountain range in Central America.


Their cuisine is the result of a historical mix between African and Spanish influence adjusted to abundant local vegetables and fruits. Sancocho (commonly called the national flag) is a stew that brings it all together in one, mixing different meats with beans, plantains and yams.  The surrounding sea is source of an amazing variety of seafood for you to enjoy while watching it from a beach restaurant.
