Introduction

Wind blowing dust off a desert plain, fat raindrops falling from the thick rainforest canopy, sun breaking over high alpine mountains, dry grass hissing in the late afternoon breeze, waves splashing on white-sand beaches. Most often, when all of those landscapes are talked about, it's on the continental scale, but all of those environments can be found in the island nation of the Dominican Republic. Matador's experts can offer valuable insight into the strained Haitian / Dominican relationship, volunteer opportunities in the country and great places to honeymoon on a budget.
