Dominican RepublicBegin your sailing holiday at the Dominican Republic

By Laura Nineham

 Travel / Destination     

The Caribbean is one of the most popular exotic holiday destinations. The Dominican Republic was the most popular Caribbean island in 2009, with almost 4 million visitors in 2009. Located on the island of Hispaniola, it's one of two Caribbean islands that is shared by two countries - the western third of the island is occupied by Haiti.

In the 1490's the Dominican Republic became the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Americas, and Spain's first capital in the New World.

The Dominican Republic has the second largest economy in the Caribbean, dominated by the services industry despite its reputation for sugar production. It's tourism that fuels the country's economic growth, representing an estimated one in every seven jobs.

Tourists are often attracted to the country because of its year-round golf course, the warm climate and great biological diversity. The Caribbean is home to around 9% of the world's coral reefs, which cover about 20,000 square miles.

One of the best ways to explore the Caribbean is from the beautiful blue seas, and perhaps the most luxurious way to do so is with a yacht charter. Caribbean newcomers can start their trip at the hugely popular Dominican Republic and then sail across to one of the many other islands. Located in the midst of the Caribbean islands, the Dominican Republic is neighboured by Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands.

Chartering a yacht gives you the freedom to go where you wish, with the luxury of travelling in a beautiful yacht. You can hire a skipper to sail the boat for you or, if you're confident enough and have plenty of experience, you can take charge of your holiday and explore yourself.
