A Bit of Geography

I recently read an article talking about how geographically naive Americans are. At first, I was a laughing at the embarrassing geographic mistakes people made on a regular basis, but I soon realized I didn't even know where all the New England states where located. As a result, for all of you who are a bit geographically challenged like me, I thought I would try to help you out.

Where is the Dominican Republic located?
The DR is located on the island of Hispaniola located in the Caribbean. The nation shares the western third of the island with Haiti. It is the second largest nation in the region both by size and population.

Where is Jarabacoa located?
Jarabacoa is located in the center of the Dominican Republic in a mountainous region. The nearest major city, Santiago, is located about 45 minutes to the north.
