5.0 out of 5 stars Just the book I was looking for! 16 Oct. 2007
By P. C. Fuller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had already planned and booked my trip to DR so I did not need or want one of the MANY books out there on where to stay, what to do, etc. I had already taken care of all that. Instead, I wanted to learn about the history and culture of the DR, to gain some background knowledge on my travel destination. This book gave me a great overview of the country. The chapters are broken down into the following sections: a history of the nation; from plantation to vacation: DR today; Music, food & the arts; nature and outdoor activities; Santo Domingo, Mountain/river/central areas; the north coast; the east coast (sugar and sand); the southwest; and various facts/information (that are helpful to tourists). This book makes no mention of specific resorts, rather geographic areas and what each has to offer. There are many beautiful color photos throughout the book as well. It is a very quick and easy read, and because I read it I felt like I knew a little bit about the wonderful people of DR whom I came in contact with. Do not buy this book if you are looking for a Fodor's type book that lists and rates resorts, restaurants, etc. Buy it to get a brief lesson in DRs history and culture before traveling to the country. You won't be sorry!
