In 2022 alone, the Dominican Republic received, by way of health tourism, more than 250 thousand patients, doubling the figures achieved in 2018. Meanwhile, more than 3% of tourists visiting Dominican territory do so for health and wellness reasons.
This was revealed by Alejandro Cambiaso, president of the Dominican Association of Health Tourism (ADTS) and Amelia Reyes Mora, president of AF Comunicación Estratégica, as they unveiled the details of the 6th International Congress on Health and Wellness Tourism to be held from November 1-3 in Santo Domingo and will bring together more than 40 national and international exhibitors.
