Dominican Republic Reports 5.9% Rise in Tourism

SANTO DOMINGO – The Dominican Republic received 4.1 million visitors in the first six months of this year, an increase of 5.9 percent from the same period in 2017, the central bank said on Friday.

Foreign nationals accounted for 87 percent of the visitors, while the remaining 13 percent were Dominicans who reside abroad.

The data show that 61.2 percent of tourist arrivals were from North America, 22.1 percent from Europe, 12.4 percent from South America and 4 percent from Central America and the Caribbean.

The number of North American visitors grew by 7.8 percent, according to the central bank, which also cited an 11.7 percent increase in tourism from South America.

But arrivals from Central America and the Caribbean dropped 14.9 percent, while the number of European visitors slipped 2.8 percent.

Nearly 70 percent of tourists entered the Dominican Republic through the international airport in Punta Cana, the heart of the country’s beachfront resort area.
