In Dominican society, appearance is very important as it is used to indicate social standing and the degree of a person’s success.

Kissing hands: The term “kissing hands” actually refers to asking for a blessing. This tradition involves young people “kissing” the hands of their elder family members such as their mom, dad, uncle and grandad.

Dominican cuisine is a combination of Spanish, African and Taino culture. Here is the Capital of the Gastronomic Culture of the Caribbean.

The Morn-Trois-Python National Park attracts tourists due to the Boiling Lake shrouded in steam, the water of which is heated by volcanic gases, sulfur springs, Trafalgar Falls, overlooking from a height of 65 meters, and the narrow Tito Gorge.
