Over 859MM traveler reviews determined Dominican Republic is a top international destination

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – June 2 , 2020 – Contagious culture, rich history and pristine, inviting landscapes, Dominican Republic is a destination like no other, and millions of travelers agree. This year, Dominican Republic was recognized in the annual Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards in the premier category, Most Popular Destinations — World, and landed spot #13, making Dominican Republic the number one spot in the Caribbean and Americas.

Known as one of the world’s largest crowd-sourcing sites for reviews on destinations, dining, accommodations and activities, the annual awards are unlike other as they are based on real traveler’s experiences and ratings.

The Tripadvisor destination overview describes Dominican Republic as a delightful destination with an incredible balance of white-sand beaches and Victorian architecture. Based on traveler input, Tripadvisor suggests taking a day trip to Puerto Plata, the birthplace of tourism in Dominican Republic, and ride the cable car up Mount Isabel de Torres, or groove to the steel drum beats of Cabarete nightlife. They describe the warm breeze and crystal waters of Punta Cana a true paradise and urge visitors to experience Punta Cana’s world-class activities such as ziplining, surfing at Macao beach or golfing on world-ranked courses.

“Our number one goal is to provide complete satisfaction to the millions of travelers who join us in Dominican Republic each year,” said Magaly Toribio Marketing Advisor for the Ministry of Tourism. “It is an incredible honor to be recognized by real visitors as not only the best in the Caribbean but one of the best in the World. Our tourists continue to be a source of inspiration for us and we look forward to continuing to offer exceptional service, experiences, and memories to last a lifetime.”

Although there are many destinations within the country tourists have noted as “must-see” hotspots, the standouts according to Tripadvisor, include Saona Island, located 19 kilometers (12 miles) south of the mainland where long stretches of brilliant white sand and their giant coconut trees seem to melt into iridescent crystal clear waters; the world-famous Bávaro Beach near Punta Cana where visitors can relax and enjoy miles of white sand beach while connecting with locals; and Santo Domingo’s most historic neighborhood, the Colonial City a designated UNESCO world heritage site, known for its cobble stone streets, romantic and lively atmosphere, and historical landmarks.
