The Dominican Republic received almost 3.8 million tourists until April, 36% more than the previous year

The Dominican Republic received more than 3.7 million tourists in the first four months of the year, 36% more visitors compared to the same four-month period in 2022, according to figures released by the Ministry of Tourism of the Caribbean country.

Of these, more than 73% arrived in the country by air, while the remaining 26% resorted to maritime transport. The number of visitors who landed in the Dominican Republic was 25% higher than the same period in 2022 and was 17% higher than in 2019, prior to the pandemic.

According to the head of Tourism, David Collado, the first four-month period of 2023 has been “the best in history” and, facing the end of the year, he is confident that the country will reach 7.9 million euros. “These are palpable and irrefutable numbers, which we achieve month after month, surpassing our own records,” Collado has maintained.

In turn, it is worth noting the “constant” growth in the number of people arriving by cruise, which places the Dominican Republic as one of the leaders in this segment in the region.

In April alone, the country received 862,705 visitors by air and sea, breaking another new record in tourist arrivals. Of these, almost 80% arrived by air, which adds up to a total of 681,567 travelers.

This figure is 9% higher than that registered in 2022 and 17% compared to 2019. In addition, around 86% were international tourists.
