History
The Native American Tainos, a group of Arawak people, were the first to settle in the Dominican Republic. On his first expedition to the New World in 1492, Christopher Columbus claimed the island for Spain. A large number of Native Americans lived on the island at the time. In 1844, the island nation proclaimed its independence from neighbouring country Haiti after centuries of both French and Spanish dominance, dating back to the 16th century. Prior to regaining its independence in 1865, the Dominican Republic was under Spanish domination until 1861.

Architecture
The capital city of Santo Domingo is the ideal place to view the Dominican Republic’s unique architectural style. Characterized by extravagant ornamentation and baroque architecture,  beautiful patterns and art are present in many homes and structures all around the nation. Structures with stucco exteriors, arched doors and windows, and red-tiled roofs are staples of Dominican culture and architecture. The Dominican Republic's indigenous peoples also had a substantial impact on the country's architectural style. The Taino people made a lot of their crafts, artwork, furniture, and homes out of mahogany and guano (dried palm tree leaf), providing houses and furniture with a natural touch, perfectly merging with the island's beauty and landscape. With tourism on the rise, the Dominican Republic has started incorporating modern styles that place an emphasis on luxury.

Activities 
You can enjoy many ecotourism activities at the Dominican Republic’s gorgeous national parks, mountain ranges, rivers, and beaches, dance to the heart-pounding excitement of the merengue, relax in their opulent and modern hotels, and explore old artifacts and architecture from centuries ago. From water sports like snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing to nightlife activities such as visiting their popular casinos, restaurants, and clubs, or even enjoying the live entertainment that flood the streets - there is something for everyone.

Beaches
Even though this beautiful island is home to many tourist attractions, one of its best qualities is its breathtaking coastlines. The beaches in the Dominican Republic are stunning, featuring shorelines of fine sand, dazzling blue water, and breathtaking views of the ocean. One of the most well-known beach and resort destinations in the nation is without a doubt Punta Cana. It is difficult to choose a standout beach among the many beautiful ones in the Dominican Republic, but Bavaro Beach is unquestionably the best and most distinctive in Punta Cana and the nation. To experience something new and exciting, check out Pink Sands Beach on the east coast of the charming Bahamian Harbour Island.

Restaurants
The cuisine of the Dominican Republic is truly made with soul. Distinctive and delicious, Dominican cuisine is made with mixtures of herbs and plants, fried cheeses, meats, onions, tomatoes, sazón (sauce) all blended and cooked to perfection. You will understand why sancocho is considered the national dish of the Dominican Republic once you give it a try. To make your dinner start with a bang, this hearty soup is made with aged meats, maize, potatoes, and plantain - frequently served with a fluffy mound of white rice! While visiting its various cities, check out Montserrat Manor, Mosha's Reggae Lounge, or Las Palmas!

Transit & Commute Times
The public transportation network in the Dominican Republic is remarkably advanced and vast. Dominicans frequently travel, whether to visit family, conduct business, or go to school. There are always buses, large and small, travelling to whichever town or city you choose to explore. Taxis are widely available, and Uber is now accessible in three major cities: Santiago, Puerto Plata, and Santo Domingo. Public transportation is not only the cheapest option, but it's also a fantastic chance to see how people live on a daily basis in the Dominican Republic. For within-city transportation, options include minivan buses, shared taxis, ubers, and conchos, and for long-distance travel, the Dominican offers an advanced subway system, coach bus services, and trains!

Safety 
Tourists can generally feel safe travelling to the Dominican Republic. With more than six million tourists visiting the island each year, some of the nation's resort areas are among the most well-liked tourist sites worldwide. Due to the high amount of gang activity, it is essential to stay away from and be aware of the areas where gangs are concentrated. During your visit, it's advisable to use cash wherever you can and enjoy the comfort and convenience of your resort!
