By Poonam


If you are one who doesn’t know anything about the Dominican people do not worry because Dominicans are a simple and happy people. They love to talk with foreigners. You will find them very happy whenever you meet them. They are quite proud of their heritage and face the everyday problems of life with ease and an understanding that life goes on.

It is rare to hear a Dominican get truly upset or frustrated because of some sort of infrastructure shortfall, like losing power. They are used to the continual power outages and often just continue with life as if they had power, even though they are literally in the dark. There is peace and calm in their lives, which can be easily seen by those who are new to the country. If you are planning to visit any place, then Isla bella is the best place because of the Dominican people. No one can deny that there are many beautiful places on the island. If you try to capture all of the beauty the island has to offer then you will surely be lost.
The beaches and resorts are some of the most popular reasons people visit the Dominican Republic, but tourists come back over and over again because of the Dominican people.
The Dominican Republic was home to the Taino Indians. After years of plagues and killing by its conquerors, only Dominican people remain. A Dominican has no direct heritage or ancestry. The typical Dominican is a mix of Spanish and other nationalities. Many Dominicans are into health. When you visit you will notice that there are not many truly obese nationals. Even though the local food is not that healthy, Dominicans have the ability to eat plain food and not get severely over weight. Additionally, there are number of different parks for the recreation. People also like to go to the baseball park to see games between the national teams. These teams often are full of major league players who play in the off season to stay in shape.
There many entertainment places and you can also go to dance clubs. The Dominican culture is a blend of many other cultures. The Dominican people are very proud of this mix. The tropical environment and the Caribbean climate are suitable for all. You will not have to worry about whether problems, unless you are lucky enough to be visiting during a hurricane. If you are on the island during a hurricane you should count yourself as lucky because your hotel will take care of you and you will see a people who do not get stressed out over the inevitable destruction. Even during the storm the environment will remain the same. You will enjoy spending every moment of your vacation here. There is now no doubt that this place is in the limelight of the many tourists and countless visitors visit it every year because of the amazing beaches and interesting history.
The Dominican people are very cooperative with tourists. They can talk with you about just about any topic. They love the company of different people and they don’t miss such chance at any cost. In addition to the culture and beach, you will enjoy the dancing and local theatre. When you are in country you must take time to learn to dance meringue and baichata, the two typical Dominican pastimes. The locals are very helpful to new comers. If you are learning to dance or just practicing the language they will help you with a smile. Source:
