The Dominican Republic just set another tourism record, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The country reported 626,010 tourist arrivals in April — the most visitors in April in the history of the destination. 

That number represents 7 percent more than April 2019 and 13 percent more travelers than April 2018, according to Dominican Republic Tourism Minister David Collado. 

“The recovery of tourism is a reality,” Collado said. “We did again. The growth we achieved in April is unprecedented. It is the best April in the history of Dominican tourism.” 

Of that number, about 60 percent of visitors arrived through Punta Cana, with 23 percent through Santo Domingo. 

It’s yet another record for a destination that has continued to see spectacular numbers so far in 2022.
