The Dominican Republic has made no secret of its plans to push its capital, Santo Domingo, as an emerging tourism destination.
And the capital just got a big boost from Spirit Airlines, which has officially launched new nonstop flights from Orlando to Santo Domingo.
The new service, part of a wider expansion to the Caribbean out of Orlando, is operating four times each week through Nov. 7.
After that, the route will become a daily one, according to a statement from Spirit.
It’s the latest new route for Santo Domingo, which is increasingly on the radar of well-informed Caribbean travelers thanks to its marvelous colonial city and its growing portfolio of top boutique hotels.
