The merengue is a lively Caribbean dance that originated in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The world’s most famous merengue festival takes place in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic’s capital city, where outdoor stages are set up along the city’s waterfront, and top bands play merengue music while couples swirl and shake to the fast-paced, pulsating rhythms. In addition to watching the performances and competitions among merengue dancers, festivalgoers can enjoy the music of DJs and bands on the street, imbibe rum and beer, and eat the signature pork sandwiches, chimichurris.
