Another month, another record. It’s been that kind of year for the Dominican Republic, the most-visited destination in the Caribbean and one that continues to see blazing tourism arrival numbers. 

Last month, the Dominican Republic reached 4.178 million combined air and cruise visitors for the first four months of 2024 — putting the destination on track to exceed 11 million visitors in the calendar year. 

That included just over 3 million air arrivals — a 10 percent jump compared to the first four months of 2024, according to Dominican Republic Tourism Minister David Collado.

That’s also 24 percent compared to the country’s top pre-pandemic total in 2019. 

The arrivals for 2024, unsurprisingly, constitute another record-breaking total for the country, Collado confirmed. 

In April alone, the Dominican Republic reported just over 700,000 stopover arrivals, itself a 3 percent increase over 2023.
