Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
T he Dominican Republic is the second largest and most populous country in the Caribbean, occupying the eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, adjacent to Haiti. To the east of the Dominican Republic is the Mona Passage, which separates it from Puerto Rico. Both the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean Sea to the south produce rideable surf on an ideally indented coastline. While the Dominican Republic is a mountainous country, golden sandy beaches remain the main tourist attraction, which explains the high concentration of hotels and resorts on the Amber Coast, especially the 65km (41mi) zone between Puerto Plata and Cabarete.
