Travel and Tourism - Dominican Republic - May 2017

As is emphasising the ‘human’ and ‘cultural’ elements of a visit to the country – through the further development of rural tourism. The greater provision of (and better marketing of) this kind of experience, alongside cultural experiences – such as dining in local restaurants and enjoying cultural performances – could help the Dominican Republic keep up with the demand from tourists worldwide for authentic experiences.”
