The Dominican Republic has been included as an important tourism destination for 2013, according to the travel magazines Lonely Planet, Fodor’s Travel Guide and British Airways.

All three publications highlight the natural beauty of the country’s coastline, the tropical climate, the colonial architecture and the warmth of its people.

Lonely Planet, internationally renowned for its annual lists of must destinations, says that the Dominican Republic is a must destination for the perfect Caribbean destination due to its privileged shoreline and rich natural and cultural heritage.

Fodor’s Tour Guide featured the Samaná Peninsula, on the country’s northeast section, as one of the best 25 places to visit in 2013.

The publication says the region is dotted with paradisiacal beaches, impressive hotels, and the friendliest of people. Its environmental attractions, combined with many other features, make it an idyllic destination for the international visitor.

Another recommended destination in the Dominican Republic is the Punta Cana region, on the country’s easternmost region.  The recommendation is made by British Airways, which places Punta Cana among its thirteen most important destinations for 2013.

According to Ash van Wensveen, destination manager for the airline, “People are increasingly mentioning Punta Cana as a favorite destination because it is affordable, and offers fabulous hotels and beaches.”

A Promissory 2012

Last year was an important one for the Dominican Republic.  All together, the country reported a 5.9% growth in the arrival of international visitors through local airports (3.9 million).

Overall, the Dominican Republic received numerous awards for the quality of its facilities and tourism offers.

Among the awards are: “The Best Island Golf of the Year” awards “Caribbean World Travel & Living Awards 2012″, Punta Cana and Bayahibe were selected in the list “Top 25 beach destinations in the world” of the awards “Traveller’s Choice 2012, Beach Destinations” and the port of La Romana was selected as the best cruise destination for the journal “Cruise Insights”.
