The idea behind iHeartDR is a simple one. Locals know best

There are many big international travel companies out there that provide great information about the Dominican Republic (you probably know some of them) such as Lonely Planet, Fodors, Frommer’s, Yahoo Travel, Tripadvisor and others. They’re the travel industry leaders and we have found their guides very useful when traveling to other countries ourselves BUT they lack what iHeartDR is all about: THE LOCALS PASSION.

We are a team of Dominican Republic loving locals dedicated to travel the country searching for the best things to do and must have experiences.

A Wild Story!

Ari and Jhonson started working on iHeartDR to help visitors to the DR build their perfect vacations years before becoming wildly successful on YouTube where they now have almost 500,000 subscribers and over 150 million views! Despite their YouTube success they remain very much in love and committed to their pet project iHeartDR.

To this day, Jhonson and Ari personally oversee every booking made through our site and answer to every customer inquiry to ensure a personal touch with every customer.

But You Don’t Have To Take Our Word For It…

We were pleasantly surprised with the service provided. We booked several excursions and were impressed with the prompt pick up each time at our hotel. There were NO hassles or worries.

We must compliment this company for a very efficient service pre booked on the internet. Very professional, clean vans.They arrange everything for you. Makes it worry free.

When vacationing in a foreign place it’s always the best when you hook up with a tour group that shows you the real side of the country. I give two thumbs and two toes up for this trip.

We booked an adventure buggy tour for 22 people. Thomas was great to deal with, spoke english and was very efficient in answering any email questions I sent (and there were many!).

short words from the editor

Don't be a tourist be a traveler. -

I have been traveling cross country for more than 15 years now and I have fallen in love with my country. I am passionate about the DR and on a lifelong mission to give others the opportunity to create their own love story in the beautiful Dominican Republic.

I’ve done my share of traveling around the world and know exactly what tourists search for when visiting a new country. I helped create iHeartDR as a fellow traveler and most importantly as a knowledgeable local.

Giving Back

We believe that companies need to give back to their communities and use business to improve lives.
