Taking the visitor beyond well-trodden sunny beaches, this unorthodox guidebook gives visitors the ability to discover the real Dominican Republic.

Their relaxed authenticity and unique perspective will inspire wanderlust in any reader.
The first European outpost in the Western Hemisphere, the contemporary Dominican Republic is a proud country with diverse African, European and native roots. Feel pan-Hemispheric fusion like nowhere else while dancing to the beats of merengue and bachata; tasting the pleasing cuisine like hearty stews or fried sweet plantains; and spending time in the vibrant marketplaces full of bright tropical produce and tinctures to ward off the evil eye. The DR also challenges visitors with extraordinary geographic diversity: the picturesque deserts of the South, the pine-covered central mountains, and the idyllic sandy beaches on every coast.
Whether detailing centuries-old colonial ruins, the highest peak in the Caribbean, or hidden surfer’s coves, this guidebook ventures to every corner with insight and wit. Become part of the adventure and discover the rich culture and stunning natural beauty of the Dominican Republic.
