Dominican Republic named Best International Destination at 2024 Condé Nast Traveler Awards

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic continues to be one of the world’s most beloved destinations, as evidenced by its latest accolade at the Condé Nast Traveler Awards, where the country was selected as the winner in the “Best International Destination” category.

“It’s easy to mistakenly think that the Dominican Republic is all about its idyllic beaches,” the magazine editorial stated in its awards announcement.

“And while it’s true that the white sand and the mesmerizing blue waters seem to etch themselves permanently in your memory, once you’re there, you’ll discover that your five senses will forever cherish its many other wonders: the mangú for breakfast – or the sancocho, or the habichuelas, or the tostones…–, the good humor and warmth of its people, the merengue as the soundtrack of everyday life…”, they added.

Finally, they assure that “the Dominican Republic doesn’t steal your heart, it kidnaps it so that you never want to leave its dreamlike landscapes and all the people who live in them.”

The Condé Nast Traveler Awards recognize the travel sector, awarding the best destinations, hotels and resorts, both nationally and internationally. Among the numerous award categories, there were awards for “Best City Hotel” to “Best Snow Hotel”, including “Best Design Hotel”.

The awards gala, chosen by popular vote, was hosted by Spanish actress Greta Fernández and featured special performances by Dominican artist Lennis Rodríguez and Spanish singer-songwriter Nil Moliner, who kicked off the party by performing his three most famous songs and brought the whole audience to their feet.
