20 08 2008
The Dominican Republic is showing signs of being an ideal destination for people looking for green holidays.
Dominican Today reports that Foreign Policy magazine reveals that the popular tourist destination now ranks 33rd out of 180 countries that have taken steps to improve their environmental quality.
Research also shows that the Dominican Republic has introduced a range of initiatives to ensure political, economic and social stability.
In particular, resorts such as Jarabacoa are aiming their wide range of new facilities at eco-tourists and promoting the great attractions that the region has to offer.
Pico Duarte, one of the highest peaks in the Caribbean, offers keen hikers the chance to experience a stunning view of the country view via its easy trail to the summit.
Meanwhile, those looking to combine an eco-setting with high-thrills should consider taking their holidays close to Lake Enriguillo - which is famous for its large population of American crocodiles.
