Tourists are Flocking Back to the Dominican Republic

  • November arrivals hit 20-year high, up 197% versus 2020
  • Deputy minister credits loose borders, tight controls

The Dominican Republic is on track to receive close to 5 million visitors this year, cementing a recovery for the Caribbean’s top tourist destination despite the threat of the omicron variant, Deputy Minister of Tourism Jacqueline Mora said.

In a telephone interview, Mora said tourism was rebounding sharply from the pandemic lows of last year, and that monthly arrivals from September through November were breaking records.
