Although it is a small country, the Dominican Republic packs a punch for adventure travelers and those who practice ecotourism.

It has a great diversity of ecological parks and reserves, flora and fauna, tropical woods, dessert areas, and coastal cliffs where you can hike, raft, tube, or take a safari trip! In this wonderful Caribbean country, you will find thousands of walking trails, multiple nature parks and reserves, beautiful beaches, unexplored caves, and impressive waterfalls.

  • Introduction to ecotourism
  • The challenges ecotourism presents to local communities
  • Economic, societal, and environmental benefits of ecotourism

…and so much more!
