Dominican Republic Tours

by Brandon Yano

An Insider’s Tour of the Dominican Baseball Machine

November 9-16, 2022

A baseball pilgrimage to the Dominican Republic is like a soccer fan’s trip to Brazil or a pizza lover’s trip to Italy. Join us for a tour of this beautiful, baseball-crazed Caribbean island and see béisbol in its most vibrant form.

You’ll receive an insider’s experience of the island and its baseball culture, including visits to rocky sandlots with cows grazing the outfield, pristine development academies of MLB teams, and raucous professional winter league (LIDOM) games. All the while, we’ll enjoy visits with Dominican baseball players and executives, and immerse ourselves in the D.R.’s unique, Latino-Caribbean culture.

Check out our 2021 Tour recap for an idea on what to expect.

The Dominican Republic’s climate is very hot and humid, even in the winter months. We will spend a lot of time outside and have a full schedule of activities. We do not recommend this trip if you have health issues that may be strained by being active in a tropical climate.

As of this writing, the D.R. does not require that travelers are vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter the country. However, it is likely that we will still make it a  requirement for all tour guests to be fully vaccinated; stay tuned for more details.
