For many people this Caribbean island symbolizes the perfect exotic holiday location, a paradise of sun, sand, and sea all year round.
For Christopher Columbus it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen, deserving of the name “La Española”, while the original inhabitants honored it with the name “Quisqueya”, fertile Mother Earth.
The modern name of the island is “Hispa-niola”; it is home to the Dominican Republic. The country offers a variety of natural trea-sures which are unique in the Caribbean: lush, subtropical vegetation, fertile valleys, mountain ranges up to 10,400 feet (3175 meters) high, and hundreds of kilometers of its famous palm-lined white sand beaches and shimmering turquoise sea.
Its nature as well as its moving history, the vivid everyday culture and its people make it worth visiting this beautiful country.
All this turns the Dominican Republic into a wonderful place to learn Spanish. Discover the exotic-Caribbean flair, the easy-going vitality, openness and hospitality of its people. You are more than welcome!
Bienvenidos a la Republica Dominicana!
