It's official: More tourists from North America, fewer from Europe to Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic Central Bank said the number of tourists who arrived in the country by air climbed 5.8% in the January-May period, with 2.9 million.

It also notes a decline on the arrival of tourists from Europe. According to the report tourist arrivals by air from North America (Canada, the United States and Mexico) grew 6.1%, from 1.4 million to 1.6 million in that period. The arrival of tourists from Europe fell 1.4% in the same period, from 611,267 to 602,755.

The decrease of tourists from Europe was mainly due to declines from Germany (-21,139), Russia (-10,436), Sweden (-4,279), Spain (-4,090) and Italy (-1,031), “which could not be compensated for the increases in the arrival of travelers residing in France (6,354), Portugal (5,597), Ukraine (4,159), Poland (2,955), Czech Republic (1,893), Denmark (1,541), Romania (1,384), Switzerland (1,203) and Austria (1,198), among other countries analyzed.
