Dominicana On Line - El Portal de la República Dominicana

There are many ways of appreciating and assessing the Dominican Republic. Its location in the Antilles and its size, 48,198 square kilometers, means it is the largest in the archipelago, and its geographical situation is characterized by its tropical nature.

Rising peaks and hydrographical basins alongside dry and humid forests create a landscape where contrasts have become a constant factor that enrich the landscape and increase the wealth of natural heritage.
A border of 382.8 kilometers separates the Dominican Republic from Haiti. This area is also a starting point for learning about the 32 administrative and political regions Dominican Republic of the country, accommodating the 8,562,541 inhabitants that make up its population. It has an average annual temperature of around 25 °C (77 °F), defined as a cool tropical climate.

With a life expectancy of 73.68 years, the demographic evolution of the country is maintained in a state of constant progression.
Governed by a representative democracy with power being divided between three independent sectors, namely Executive, Legislative and Judicial Powers, the Dominican people are counting on growth.

Connected by air, sea and land, but also by more modern technological networks, given the use of more than 2.7 million mobile phones, the Dominican Republic has 12,600 kilometers of roads, and hundreds of international and inter-ocean flights arriving via the network of international airports. The country has made the most of its strategic geographical location.

We would like to invite you to learn a little more about the social, economic and political wealth and spirit of the country.
