According to Wikipedia, it's about 38%.

It depends on how you count them..........and what year you use.

Overall, using the official tourist arrival figures for 2019, the US sends approximately 50% of all tourist arrivals in the DR. The Banco Central breaks it down by counting US passport holders, non-resident Dominicans (majority likely from the US), and if you can believe it, a separate category for those from Puerto Rico (who are also US citizens).

The breakdowns are posted monthly/yearly at the website of the Banco Central;

50% is close enough. Suffice it to say, the lion's share of tourists are from the US and definitely North America.

As to the rumors that the government is going to close everything again--even tighter--after the elections, anyone have any info? i know somewhere CristoRey mentioned this, also, and got in trouble for not citing his sources. Certainly, it's the word on the street, but I don't see how it's possible, really, at least as far as shutting down the borders again.

Does anyone know if the beaches are open again? That's what all my Dominican friends are telling me.

Can you please ask your friends where they got the information from? I really hope they are right!!

The new declaration from the salud Taliban's is not really clear about it but on page 3 in the begin it states that all the measurements from phase 2 stay in place! :(:(:(

Yes... I don't think the airlines can slip it into gear that fast - July 3
But this flight is already a 'go' so might be changed
