Dominican Republic Named #1 Caribbean Destination
Travel professionals agree – Dominican Republic is the Caribbean’s must-visit location
From hiking trails to undiscovered beaches and unique cultural activities including gastronomy, dancing and carnival, Dominican Republic is like no other place in the Caribbean and Travel Weekly agrees. The leading travel outlet recently declared Dominican Republic the number one destination in the Caribbean at the 2018 Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards.
“It is an honor for our country to be acknowledged by leading professionals in the travel industry,” said Magaly Toribio, Marketing Advisor for the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism. “We are proud to promote the distinct beauty and diversity of our country and look forward to welcoming many new and returning visitors in 2019 and years to come.”
These widely recognized, coveted awards are presented annually to the industry suppliers who led the way in product and service during the past year. The open ballot phase of the voting was conducted during the summer. Travel Weekly readers were invited to write in the names of any company they believe best exemplifies a category. The leading vote recipients were identified as finalists and voting on finalists took place October through November 2018 and announced in December.
This recognition comes as Dominican Republic prepares to welcome new daily flight routes in 2019 from destinations throughout the U.S. including New York, Cleveland, and Fort Lauderdale, among other locations. This year the Caribbean oasis will also add a series of iconic hotel properties to its portfolio of over 78,000 rooms, as well as host international events, including the 2019 Corales PGA Tour hosted at Puntacana Resort & Club March 28-30.
