Tourism going strong

Tourism Minister Felix Jimenez says Dominican Republic Tourism could surpass 2007’s awesome figures in 2008. In January and February of this year, a total of 725,238 people visited Republica Dominica. This represents a  9.14% boost in tourists as compared to the January and February of 2007.
Senor Jimenez pointed out  that figures from Central Bank specify that in February alone 372,002 visitors traveled to the DR, which represents a 12.74% increase on last year. For the period of the first two months of the year Canadians comprised the greatest amount of visitors with 13.9%. This was closely followed by US visitors at 10%,  Europeans made up 2.12%. Russians, 9.3%, people from Belgium, 7.2, then Great Britain with 2.7%.
The Tourism Minister also said this swell in travel was perpetuated by the Dominican government’s improved spending on promotion. He added that throughout the past three years the normal spending on tourism advertising came to about US$23.3 million.
