Christopher Columbus spotted the Dominican Republic in 1492; it is the oldest post-Columbian country in the Americas.

The Dominican Republic hosts one out of five visitors to the entire Caribbean. Why here? It has some of the best beaches on earth and they, in turn, have inspired not just accommodations but world-class golf courses designed by P.B. Dye, Tom Fazio, and Jack Nicklaus.
