The Dominican Republic is a country located in the Caribbean, located in the central area of the Antilles; It occupies the central and eastern part of the island of Hispaniola. Its capital and most populated city is Santo Domingo. It limits to the north with the Atlantic Ocean, to the east with the Mona channel, which separates it from Puerto Rico, to the south with the Caribbean Sea, and to the west with Haiti, which is the other country located in Hispaniola. For a Dominican, beans with sweet are enjoyed at a specific time of the year, the best of rice is the concón and a party without meringue is not a party. There are many and very diverse customs on this beautiful island and each town has its own. The typical Dominican merengue has several versions but the ripiao parrot is the oldest and the one that is most danced. Originally from Cibao, currently the merengue as well as the group of three or four musicians who interpret it is called ripiao perico. Wherever you see a group of musicians with an accordion, a tambora and a güira, they will probably be performing a song with this rhythm. the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, informed the new date of the curfew that he will govern in the country and the new regulations with which he seeks to mitigate COVID-19 infections.
