Welcome to the Dominican Republic homepage!!!

This is not an official page that has anything to do with the government of the country but a page maintained by myself Jose F. Torres.

I don't have too much space so what you are going to find here are mainly links, I am not responsible for any links that are not on this server I am trying to get most of the information so I can keep it on here.

If you have never been here or heard of this beautiful country, it is a small nation occupying the eastern part of the island Hispaniola in the caribbean, right next to Puerto Rico.The other side of the island is occupied by Haiti.

I grew up in the southeastern part of the island in the town of La Romana and lived in Casa de Campo. Below are pictures of the hotel including villas, rooms and Minitas Beach, brought to you from Caribe.Com.

One of the rooms in the hotel buildings known as "Casita's".
These rooms are spread all over the complex almost all overlooking one of the two championship golf courses and as you can see in this picture a view of the Carribbean.

The capital of the country is Santo Domingo which is located towards the center of the country on the Southern Coast.

The island was one of the islands that Cristopher Columbus landed at on his first voyage in 1492

There are actually two Dominican Republic mailing lists called:

Sdomingo, which stands for Santo Domingo the capital of the country. Just send mail to <listserv@enlace.bitnet> with only the message: subscribe sdomingo your name in the body of your message.

Dom-Rep, which is self explanatory. In order to subscribe to this list send mail to <majordomo@lists.uoregon.edu> with the message: suscribe dom-rep in the body of your message.

We now have our own newsgroup soc.culture.dominican-rep. One of the driving forces behind it is Moyce Polanco who has his own Dominican Republic page.
