The Dominican Republic has an excellent reputation for its varied and flavorful food.You will also find Oriental, Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian restaurants. On events, we make very good celebrations for example on January 26, we honor the father of the country. We celebrate it with a humongous carnival every year during all the month of January.
