It looks like it is the ladies that are taking Dominican Republic holidays by storm. According to Central Bank figures that reavealed the number of non-resident foreigners who arrived to the Dominican Republic in the first 8 months of 2010, most of them were women.

According to the figures most non-resident tourists who visited the country from January to August were women, and 2.9 million arrived during the first fourth months, signalling a 2.3% climb compared with the 2.8 million in the same 2009 period.

Of the total no-nresident tourists who took Dominican Republic holidays from January to August this year 54.5% were women, mostly young.

According to the profile of non-resident foreign visitors, 64% are young, from 21 to 49, and 91.5 percent cited recreation as their main reason to visit, of which 87.3% booked hotels.

According to Central Bank figures 54,710 are from Americas; 51,639 from South America and 16,858 from Central America and the Caribbean, which offset the 66,993 fewer visitors from Europe.
