As the local tourism tagline states, La República Dominicana Lo Tiene Todo – The Dominican Republic Has It All. The island nation’s ecosystems range from expansive sandy coastlines to tree-topped mountains, with desert landscapes and lush rainforests that abut the sea, all within a short drive from each other. The Dominican Republic’s natural resources, culture, and history are unique in the region, and the tourism infrastructure is strong and varied for safe and well-rounded student experiences. Modern Dominican culture draws great influences from the people who populated the island through waves of indigenous settlement, colonization, forced migration, political catalysts, and waves of active immigration from people from around the world. The national dishes of the DR capture this diversity of thought and origin, and are great representations of the bounty of the thriving island landscape.
Our programs in the Dominican Republic are centered on what makes the island unique. We create a hands-on comparative analysis and foster an understanding of people, places, and policies that affect different cross-sections of Dominicans. The DR team is diverse in itself, and we build programs around our own communities, our favorite restaurants, the beaches and getaways where we take our families, farms that are supporting sustainable practices, and partner organizations whose work we are passionate about. Our team draws from years of experience in non-traditional, impactful, educational, and culturally immersive travel for young people and adults. We love partnering with schools to create experiences specific to the learning needs of your group and students.
Our local team has decades of experience managing student travel programs across the Dominican Republic, achieving consistently high net promoter scores for our clients. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss partnership opportunities in the Dominican Republic.
