What to do in the Dominican Republic: where there is a Sunken Cathedral

Have you ever thought about visiting a cathedral that is underwater? That's right, in the Dominican Republic, there is an underwater cathedral! This is just one of the secrets hidden in this enchanting country, and we are here to discover more about it together.

The Dominican Republic, in the heart of the Caribbean, has a rich history and impressive tourist attractions. From paradisiacal beaches to forest-covered mountains, to cities full of colonial architecture, it is a breathtaking destination.


But where should you go when you're there? Here are five of the best places: First, the capital, Santo Domingo, with its historic center, the Zona Colonial. Second, the Samaná peninsula, a true paradise and home to a multitude of wildlife species. Third, the city of Puerto Plata, known for its beaches and forts. Fourth, Punta Cana, famous for its white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. And fifth, Lake Enriquillo, the largest salt lake in the Caribbean and home to American crocodiles.

The local currency is the Dominican peso and the official language is Spanish. And the good news for us Brazilians is that we don't need a visa to visit the Dominican Republic for up to 60 days!


Regarding the socioeconomic and political situation, the Dominican Republic is a representative democracy with a rapidly growing economy, mainly in tourism, agriculture and services. But, like every country, it faces challenges, including income inequality and environmental issues.


How much does it cost to travel to the Dominican Republic? It varies a lot, but in general it is a very affordable destination, especially compared to other destinations in the Caribbean.


Now, back to our underwater cathedral. This is the Bayahibe Underwater Cathedral, an underwater sculpture made by Spanish artist Domingo Baca. Located 5 meters deep, it has become a popular diving spot. Definitely an unforgettable experience!


The Dominican Republic is a country full of contrasts, natural beauty and vibrant culture.
