Good value for money can be gleaned from a Caribbean yacht charter holiday to the Dominican Republic, according to the country’s tourist board.
Travelling to the Caribbean island, which has Haiti as its next-door neighbour, is cheap compared with going to other destinations in the region, an official at the Dominican Republic Tourist Board insisted.
Gustavo Candelario said that, because of this, the number of people visiting the country has increased in the last five months, especially those who prefer their sailing Caribbean-flavoured.
‘People are realising how good value for money the Dominican Republic is because you can spend a fraction of what you would spend going to another destination in the Caribbean and you will get even better quality for your money. It is a fantastic deal,’ Mr Candalerio added.
The Dominican Republic offers ‘picture-perfect’ beaches and excursions to rum distilleries and cigar factories, as well as the chance to learn to sail.
