What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Dominican Republic? The beaches, of course, and all those fabulous beach facilities you see in travel magazine photos. However, the Dominican Republic is one of the most biodiverse Caribbean nations on Earth, offering its tourists mountains to conquer, deserts to photograph, and a rich colonial history to immerse themselves in.

Located in the Greater Greater Antilles, the Dominican Republic, one of the best islands in the Caribbean, borders Haiti to the west and is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean to the north, the Caribbean Sea to the south and the Mona Passage to the east, which separated from Puerto Rico. It is easy to imagine why the diversity of the place attracts millions of tourists every year: the influence of the sea and the ocean brings with it wealth, dreamy tropical climates and so much natural beauty.

You should not confuse the Dominican Republic with Dominica, which is another Caribbean country.
