The Dominican Republic has set a new record in tourism, welcoming an impressive 5,087,134 visitors between January and May 2024. This significant milestone underscores the country’s growing appeal as a top travel destination in the Caribbean.


This influx represents a notable increase compared to previous years, with a breakdown showing 3,481,440 tourists arriving by air and 1,605,694 via cruise ships. The enduring charm of the Dominican Republic’s beaches, culture, and hospitality continues to attract travelers from around the world.

The main countries emitting tourists in May were the United States, which contributed 53%, followed by Canada (11%), Colombia (5%) and Argentina (4%).


Punta Cana, one of the country’s most popular destinations, continues to attract a significant portion of these visitors.
