Dominican Republic Ready to Welcome Vacationers Derailed by Recent Hurricanes

October 11 19:50 2017

Sosua, Dominican Republic – In view of the recent onslaught of hurricane destruction in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic wants vacationers to know that it’s ready to welcome an influx of tourists this coming season.

Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria hit hard. Many beautiful tourist destinations in the Caribbean were devastated by the loss of life, catastrophic flooding and destruction of infrastructure. The Dominican Republic, although battered by Hurricane Maria, got off relatively lightly compared to some of the other islands, and was fortunate in not receiving any damage to its tourism infrastructure.

And now that the worst of the hurricane season is over, a tremendous amount of money is being invested into the country in anticipation of the upcoming high season, providing a great alternative for travelers who may have been disenfranchised by the hurricanes.

Dominican Republic’s president, Danila Medina, noted earlier this year that tourism in the country is on a “vertiginous ascent.” In 2016, the Dominican experienced a record year in arrivals – almost 6 million visitors in total. The Dominican Republic now actually boasts the largest number of rooms in the Caribbean region, totaling 75,000. And there are 8,000 new rooms on the way.

But as one tourist official has pointed out, the Dominican Republic is “not just sand and sun.” Many tourists are heading away from those idyllic beaches to enjoy what the rest of the country has to offer, from its fascinating cities to its picturesque mountain ranges.

Rather than staying in a hotel, many travelers are discovering the unique advantages of renting a vacation home. The north coast of the Dominican Republic, in the areas of Sosua and Cabarete, offers glorious beaches, sophisticated restaurants, an amazing choice of adventure and sports activities, as well as stunning rental homes to choose from.
