Description

A Paradise like no other mainly because of its history and the result of an unlikely mixture of influences. Nowhere else will you find a blending of European, African, and native Taíno Indian cultures. These
distinct cultures still drive the social identity of the people today. As the first city founded in the Americas, the capital city of Santo Domingo boasts an incredible collection of museums, historic sites,
art and music. 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. It is believed that the body of Christopher Columbus still resides on this island that he landed on hundreds of years ago. The Country's main tourist destinations includes: Punta Cana known by its stunning beaches, upscale Resorts,
romantic settings and amazing golf courses. Puerto Plata with a coastline of over 62 miles/99 km of beaches nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and majestic mountains. Samana, the Dominican
Republic's best kept secret with nature at its wildest. La Romana, the true "jewel" of the country with the number 1 golf course in the Caribbean. Santiago, located in the Cibao Valley is the country's 2nd
largest city. Jarabacoa is recognized as the birthplace of the country's true eco‑tourism at its best. Boca Chica is a delightful hive of activity conveniently located near Santo Domingo International Airport, a weekend getaway for Santo
Domingo's residents. Juan Dolio perfectly located between Santo Domingo and La Romana home of great resorts to cater both couples and families. With meeting and convention facilities throughout the
country, a modern telecommunications system, excellent air links and enough attractions to keep the most demanding travelers occupied, the Dominican Republic is quickly becoming a top destination for
conferences and conventions. Under the terms of the Tax Information Exchange Agreement within the Caribbean Business Initiative, business meetings held here are tax‑deductible for American citizens.
Whether its purpose is instruction, organization, celebration or inspiration, meetings held in the country certainly give a completely different meaning to the word "work." The Dominican Republic is being recognized as the location of choice for businesses, organizations and professional groups that want to complement the usefulness of their meetings and conferences with pleasure. Dominican Republic has it all!
