Travelshore Center was started by Dominican Republic born and raised, Emile Sanchez. Emile moved to Canada at the age of 18 and has been sharing his culture as a Dominican Bachata dance instructor for more than 10 years. In 2013, Emile met his wife, Cristy, who shared a love of Latin dance. The two connected as friends, and later partners, eventually marrying in a destination wedding in Punta Cana. Together, they’ve explored their way across the country, discovering hidden treasures throughout national parks, mountains ranges, and isolated beaches; tasting the diverse Dominican cuisine; and connecting with locals.
Emile has often been asked for advice about travelling in his home country. With his first-hand knowledge of the island’s culture and history, helpful networks, and his understanding of what Canadians are looking for in a tour experience, Emile decided to create Travelshore Center.
His mission is to share his passion for the Dominican Republic by providing unique tours that go beyond the resort, connecting travellers with fantastic adventures that fit their personal travel styles and interests, and helping them get an inside look at local life and culture as they connect with real people.
