Guests are being invited to build a dream paradise vacation on Dominican Republic (DR) Ministry of Tourism’s award-wining website.
Since its launch in January 2011, the social media-friendly site is impressing visitors and tourism marketers and has earned prestigious ADDY and Summit awards for its clever design and function.
The global, interactive website showcases key selling points of the destination, providing site visitors with in-depth information about the country, its alluring destinations, diverse activities, luxurious accommodations and travel information, and includes a dynamic event calendar to help travellers plan their next trip to the top Caribbean travel destination.
Among the most prominent features, the site’s “My Paradise” allows users to create their own personal itinerary by adding elements to their paradise section, including cities or towns of interest, activities, events, images they discover in the country while they browse the site.
They can write their own notes and even share their paradise on 200+ social media platforms.
The site also features a sophisticated “Interactive Map” that adds geo-location and mapping capabilities throughout the website, making it a true, state-of-the-art trip planning tool.
“Dominican Republic is a charismatic and unforgettable island nation boasting intricate architecture, rich culture, amazing accommodations, world-class golf courses, pristine beauty and unlimited eco adventures.
“Dominican Republic’s official and innovative new website has become the primary source for Dominican Republic travel information, consumer engagement and booking for travelers from around the world,” said Magaly Toribio, DR Ministry of Tourism’s Vice Minister of International Promotion.
The site also has a media centre where more than 1,000 high resolution images, 25 videos of the country, a calendar of events, press materials, brochures and more can all be downloaded. And, with the click of a button, the site can be translated into six different languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Russian.
