General Information

The Dominican Republic enjoys a rich cultural history. During the days of world exploration, the DR played a pivotal role in the further colonization and development of the New World. Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, the island became the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Western Hemisphere. Santo Domingo, the capital, was founded in 1496. The island has experienced numerous conflicts since being colonized, from the persecution and extinction of the native Taino people to the 31 year dictatorship of Trujillo, considered one of the bloodiest eras in the Americas. This melting pot of cultures led to the evolution of a rich and diverse nation. Dominican cuisine is a prime example of growth, with some highlights being, meat, beans, rice, plantains, and cassava. A typical favorite breakfast food in the DR consists of eggs and mangú, mashed and boiled plantains. Lunch is the most important meal of the day as it is a time for families and friends to come together and socialize.

Music and dance play an important part in the Dominican’s life, where children learn how to dance merengue and bachata before they can speak. Around every corner you will find a colmado, a small convenience store, where old and young come together to enjoy music, a cold Presidente, and exchange stories. Baseball also has a strong foothold in the country, where it is commonplace to see kids playing in the streets with makeshift bats.

Dominican architecture greatly reflects the legacy of European colonial ambitions; baroque structures and ornate designs are widespread throughout the country, but are mostly concentrated in the capital city, Santo Domingo, which is home to the first cathedral, castle, monastery, and fortress in all of the Americas.  

Car Hire Dominican Republic: Sunshine, beaches, and countryside

The Dominican Republic offers numerous opportunities for you to take advantage of your Dominican Republic rental car. Starting from the capital, you can take the 20 kilometer drive heading east to La Caleta, a district of Boca Chica. In addition to beautiful colonial buildings and architecture, the area contains the La Caleta Underwater National Park, whose crystal-clear waters provide a habitat for hundreds of species of fish and colorful corals bursting with life. The underwater park is therefore considered one of the best spots for scuba diving in the Caribbean.

With your HAPPYCAR Dominican Republic car hire you will be able to take the marvelous journey to the eastern beach resorts of the island. Here you will find the most popular tropical retreats the country has to offer, namely Punta Cana and Bávaro; their pristine beaches and five star accommodations attract millions of tourists per year to the Caribbean island. Travelers looking for a more authentic island experience should take their rent a car Dominican Republic to one of the less commercialized beaches, such as Playa Rincón, located on the eastern shoreline of the Samaná peninsula. Although harder to reach, this beach is a tropical paradise waiting to be explored. The dazzling, clear water showcases a wonderful concert of colors: vivid turquoise, blues, and greens will leave you speechless. Snorkeling is an ideal way to spend your day discovering the underwater paradise mere feet from the white beaches. All-inclusive resorts and extensive facilities are non-existent on this beach. To quench your thirst, you can enjoy a cool drink of coconut juice directly from the source as fruit-laden palm trees are in abundance on the beach and also double as the perfect shade against the warming sun. The Dominican Republic offers whale-watching in the bay of Samaná, wilderness treks at the 3087 meter high Pico Duarte, and water-sports in Cabarete. All of these exciting destinations and more are made accessible to you with a HAPPYCAR rental car. The HAPPYCAR team wishes you a pleasant journey!
