About Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic FlagSatellite view is showing the the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola, bordering the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean Sea in south. Hispaniola island is home to the independent nations of Haiti in west and the Dominican Republic, which occupies the eastern part. It is a famous tourist destination known for its pristine beaches, all-inclusive resorts and golfing, but also for its rude approach on migrant workers from neighboring Haiti, the Dominican government had just stripped Dominican-born citizens of Haitian ancestry of their citizenship, rendering hundreds of thousands stateless.

With an area of 48,310 km² the Dominican Republic is slightly smaller than Slovakia or about the size of the U.S. states of Vermont and New Hampshire combined.
The country has a population of 9.9 million people (in 2015). Capital and largest city is Santo Domingo. Official language is Spanish.

Nearby to Hispaniola island are the Caribbean Turks and Caicos Islands to the north, Puerto Rico to the east, Cuba and Jamaica in the west. Zoom out to see the location of the Dominican Republic within the Caribbean.
