Adventure & Ecotourism

The Dominican Republic wins the title of top adventure and ecotourism destination in the Caribbean hands down. The second biggest island in the region, national parks and scientific reserves cover 25% of the landscape. Most have visitor facilities.

Surrounded by sea and ocean, crisscrossed by rivers and lakes, covered in rain and dry forest and a central spine of high-rising mountains, the country’s sheer diversity makes all the difference. The tropical climate lends itself to outdoor activity all year round.

The Dominican Republic has the highest and lowest points above and below sea level in the region. Duarte Peak rises 10,125 feet (3,087 meters) within the Cordillera Central mountain range, while Enriquillo Lake is 15 feet (42 meters) below sea level.
