From December to May, the Dominican Republic is in high season for the reception of tourists who choose it as a destination to undergo some kind of medical procedure.

In addition to those who stay overnight in the country just for vacation, this type of tourist spends an average of US$7,500, which includes payment for the procedure, as well as lodging, meals and other activities carried out by patients while they are in the destination, according to estimates by the Dominican Association of Health Tourism (ADTS).
