June was the Dominican Republic’s best tourism showing since the onset of the pandemic, officials said this week.
A total of 468,367 travelers visited the Dominican Republic in June, a 20 percent jump from the 390,554 visitors that came to the country in May.
The June number represents about 80 percent of the visitors that came to the country in June 2019, according to Dominican Republic Tourism Minister David Collado.
In all, the country has welcomed just over 1.64 million passengers to the country so far in 2021, Collado said.
That came from a total of 19,725 flights.
Thanks in large part due to a relatively liberal entry protocol, the country has been among the strongest performers in the Caribbean in 2021.
