February 27 is a national holiday in the Dominican Republic, celebrating its independence. On this day in 1844, a group known as La Trinitaria declared independence from Haiti, thus making today a joyous day of celebration. Travel insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, takes a look at the Dominican Republic’s independence celebration and more.
In addition to Independence Day on February 27, the Dominican Republic celebrates all February long with parades, events and competitions with each town in the small country adding their own twist to the party in celebration of Carnival. Costumes, dancing and music interweave with crowds of natives and tourists alike.
Planning on a trip to the Dominican Republic for Independence Day requires more than a suitcase and passport. The CDC, Center for Disease Control, recommends vaccinations, particularly anti-malaria drugs before leaving for the country. Also be sure to bring along plenty of sunscreen for some fun in the sun.
