    Territorial Division

    The Dominican Republic has 32 political-administrative divisions. The economic development of these provinces has a close relationship to their geographical locations and the natural resources available. Of the 32 provinces, 17 are coastal, including the Distrito Nacional, and have fishing and tourist development as an economic base. Five form the frontier with the Republic of Haiti along the western border, from San Fernando de Monte Cristi, in the North, to Pedernales, in the South. The rest of the provinces use the fertility of their valleys for agricultural development and the topography and climate of the mountain systems for forest development and eco-tourism activities.

    Sub-regions and provinces

    The Dominican Republic has a Distrito Nacional, seat of the Dominican capital, and 31 provinces. It is divided into eight geographical regions.

    The provinces with the largest areas are La Altagracia, Santiago, Azua, La Vega, and the largest, San Juan de la Maguana (3,664.74 km2)

    The smallest provinces are La Romana, Peravia, Valverde, San José de Ocoa and the smallest is Salcedo (430 km2).
