Culture/Events

Dominicans are very lively and vibrant people. With that said there is much diversity in regard to tourism. Everything between family friendly excursions to bachelor parties. Bars across El Malecón playing music with a whole party strip.

Due to cultural syncretism, the culture and customs of the Dominican people have a European cultural basis, influenced by both African and native Taíno elements, although endogenous elements have emerged within Dominican culture;[221] culturally the Dominican Republic is among the most-European countries in Spanish America, alongside Puerto Rico, Cuba, Central Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay.[221] Spanish institutions in the colonial era were able to predominate in the Dominican culture’s making-of as a relative success in the acculturation and cultural assimilation of African slaves diminished African cultural influence in comparison to other Caribbean countries.

Music and sport are of great importance in the Dominican culture, with Merengue and Bachata as the national dance and music, and baseball as the favorite sport

Carnival Every province has its own date, the bigger one is celebrated at Santo Domingo called Desfile de Carnaval Nacional (National Carnival Parade) along the city’s boardwalk. And the more popular at La Vega Province celebrated every Sunday of February.
