Dominican Republic Weddings
Like Saint Martin, the Dominican Republic shares its island with another country. Haiti occupies the western one-third of the island of Hispaniola and the Dominican Republic occupies the balance of the island. The Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation after Cuba, with 18,704 square miles and an estimated 10 million people.
The Dominican Republic has become the Caribbean's largest tourist destination and that includes couples planning on getting married in the Dominican Republic. There are many reasons for its appeal to those looking for a Caribbean wedding or honeymoon:
- It is equidistant from North America and South America
- It has three of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world
- It has unparalleled access by air and low air fares
- Its hotels offer good prices, both economy and luxury
- Its hotels offer a great all-inclusive product
The country features year 'round golf courses that attract a significant volume of tourist business. Music and other sports are also of great importance in the Dominican culture, with merengue as the national dance and song and baseball as the favorite sport.
Couples choose a Dominican Republic wedding because of hotel and resort projects like Cap Cana and Moon Palace Resort in Punta Cana and San Souci in Santo Domingo. The hotels are luxurious, provide all the activities a couple and their guests can imagine, and package all this at some of the lowest rates in the Caribbean.
Guests attending a Caribbean Wedding in the Dominican Republic will find an incredible collection of museums, historic sites and art and music in the capital city of Santo Domingo. The Colonial City, located inside Santo Domingo, is the first city of the Americas: it features the first street, hospital, university and cathedral in the Americas. Many still believe that the body of Christopher Columbus resides on this island.
There are so many hotels and resorts in the Dominican Republic, and such an abundance of activities, that couples choosing the Dominican Republic for their Caribbean wedding should review the options with the Wedding Specialists at CaribbeanWeddings.com to make sure their selection is perfect for this special day in their lives.
