When the Dominican Republic, then a nation named for its capital as Santo Domino, declared its independence in 1821, unification of the island of Hispaniola was considered an important goal. By 1838, however, opinions had shifted, and Juan Pablo Duarte founded La Trinitaria, a secret society intended to declare an independent Santo Domingo without foreign assistance. This movement was successful, leading to a succession of leaders throughout the 19th century. In 1930 Rafael Trujillo came to power, ruling Santo Domingo autocratically until 1961, at which time Juan Bosch became the first democratically elected president of the island nation in more than three decades.
In the mountainous regions of Dominican Republic, arabica coffee dominates the coffee industry, which is based mainly in the highland regions of the island. First introduced to the island in 1715, coffee is today the croped favored by farmers throughout the country. The climate is decidedly tropical in Dominican Republic, tropical cyclones hitting the country every couple of years, the majority along the southern coast. From November to January, the west season brings torrential rainfalls, and in the mountainous areas, cold temperatures are possible.
