Sustainable tourism in Dominican Republic

With over 7 million tourists in 2019, Dominican Republic has become the most visited island in the Caribbean. Coconut-fringed beaches ranked among the most beautiful in the world, sunny territory and lush forests give tourists good reasons to head to the eastern side of Hispaniola island.

But visitors often gather in the same places, especially in Punta Cana. Large hotel complexes and numerous golf courses are transforming the natural territories to satisfy mass tourism. Dominican Republic is trying to make the practice more respectful of its environment.

Thus, the 17 national parks, natural and scientific reserves represent more than a quarter of the territory. These protected natural sites are open to visitors and show the diversity of landscapes. Meet the iguanas of Jaragua National Park, between lagoons, forest and beaches. Los Haitises National Park, nicknamed "the Hanoi Bay of the Caribbean", will impress you with its rocky mountains that rise up from the water. Go back in time in the caves of Las Maravillas, where you can admire the well-preserved indigenous Taíno rock art dating back thousands of years.

Agrotourism is booming in Dominican Republic. Several routes have been inaugurated, such as the cocoa route. Meet the farmers at their farms. Walk through the plantations and see the difference between each species of cocoa trees in the Cibao region. New in 2017, the ecotourism rice route takes you into the heart of the country, close to the bustling town of Cotui. For those who want to get involved: cooperatives all over the country invite you to participate in workshops to promote local know-how.

Step away from the all-inclusive hotels of Punta Cana and you'll discover a country that has much more to offer than cocktails and sunbeds on the beach. Dominican Republic is making efforts to open up all its regions to more sustainable tourism.
