Our friends at Uncommon Caribbean are spending a week celebrating the Dominican Republic. During this celebration they are giving away a trip for two to Cabarete, DR plus a host of prizes to go with it. Here are the details. Good luck!

Uncommon Caribbean, an innovative travel and lifestyle website updated daily with fresh, original content showcasing the best of the West Indies, has designated May 20-26 @GoDomRep Week! Throughout the weeklong celebration, all Uncommon Caribbean content will highlight experiential travel adventures, cuisine, libations, music and attractions travelers can enjoy throughout the country. As an added bonus, Uncommon Caribbean will also launch a sweepstakes during @GoDomRep Week offering readers the opportunity to win a beachfront villa stay in Cabarete, including kiteboarding lessons and an excursion to nearby waterfalls.

“As they say, the Dominican Republic has it all, especially for uncommon travelers,” said Patrick Bennett, Uncommon Caribbean co-founder and creative director. “I’ve visited the country twice in the past year, and have loved it so much I’m heading back during our @GoDomRep celebration next week! The natural beauty, adventure, history, food, culture, amazing people, quirky customs – the Dominican Republic satisfies every wanderlust, making it the perfect spotlight destination for our first dedicated week of coverage.”

Uncommon Caribbean’s @GoDomRep Week will feature photo, video and editorial content researched by Patrick during his recent visits to Cabarete, Pico Duarte, Punta Cana, Samaná, La Romana, Isla Catalina, and Santo Domingo, with additional stories produced by Uncommon Caribbean co-founder and editorial director, Steve Bennett.

“As with all of our content, the @GoDomRep Week stories will reflect our own personal experiences, likes and dislikes, providing the reader with an honest and insightful overview of what it’s like to visit and experience the country,” noted Steve. “Our hope is that readers will benefit from our informed perspective and go, themselves, to the Dominican Republic in 2013 and beyond.”

Uncommon Caribbean’s @GoDomRep Week kicks off Monday, May 20th with two posts – the first a video retrospective highlighting Patrick’s recent travels to the country will be followed by a story touting the launch of the Cabarete Sweepstakes, including details illustrating how to enter.
