Higüey is a city in the Dominican Republic.


Higüey or Salvaleón de Higüey, is also the denomination of a former native chiefdom in the east of the island at the arrival of Christopher Columbus. It is one of the economically fastest-developing cities in the country, and dubbed the Capital of Dominican Tourism and sometimes the Capital of Stockbreeding. Higüey's population topped 150,000 inhabitants as of 2006. The city thrives chiefly on tourism, with many of its inhabitants employed in the hotel complexes of Punta Cana a few kilometers away, or in the commerce of tourist products.
