Know More About Hotels in Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a North American, Carribean country. The country is located on Hispaniola, the first permanent European settlement. It is known for being the perfect resort spot and for having one of the best climates in the Caribbean. Its capital is Santo Domingo. The Dominican Republic must be distinguished from the Commonwealth of Dominica(Dominica) as these are two distinct countries.
The climate in the DR is often described as"the endless summer". The country has a warm, tropical climate all year round that is just perfect for reclining and relaxing on its several beaches. Dominicans dress lightly and employ fabrics like cotton. It is pretty much ok to visit the DR at any time of the year although temperatures drop during winter.
Family, food, and music are the heart of the Dominican Republic. The country's culture is a curious mix of different influences such as European and African. The Spanish culture is core in the Dominican Republic though. The country is mostly populated by"mestizos", people with mixed bloodlines of European(de facto Spanish) and Amerindian ancestry. DR is 73% mestizo, 16% Caucasian and 11% black. The DR is 90% Christian. Its official language is Spanish.
DR's cuisine also features a lot of Spanish, Taino, and African influences. Basic foods here are sauteed onions, fried eggs, fried cheese, avocado and they favour meats and starches over dairy products and vegetables. Some Dominican foods are Chicharron, yuca, casabe, pastelitos(empanadas), yams, etc.
