The Dominican Republic in the Caribbean is a popular holiday destination, particularly amongst those looking for an all-inclusive holiday. There has been a history of illness outbreaks at Dominican Republic hotels stretching back to the 1990s when a number of tour operators removed the country from their brochures.
