We could start a list of things that you will experience in this country, but we prefer that you discover them by yourself.
We just tell you, if you see somebody driving and at the same time having his drink or if you see 3 or 4 persons on a motor and 20 on a car just do not ask questions to yourself. It is like this and that’s all, just go with the flow but always responsible and without exaggerating!

4.Warm and sunny weather

Warm and sunny weather are the keywords of the Dominican Republic.

Sunshine boosts levels of serotonin – the body’s natural happy hormone. That’s why we tend to feel happier and more energetic when the sun shines. Regular sun can stave off moderate depression, particularly if combined with exercise, such as a walk in the park. It’s also been shown that exercising outdoors creates more endorphins in the body than exercising indoors.

5.Variety of things to do

Your favorite sport is golf or surfing? Or maybe do you like all of them? No problem, the Dominican Republic has it all as the slogan of the Ministry of Tourism says!
