Its capital and the most populous city is Santo Domingo. It is bordered to the north by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east by the Mona Passage, which separates it from Puerto Rico, to the south by the Caribbean Sea and to the west by Haiti, which is the other country located in Hispaniola. It has an area of 48 730 km2 and its current population is estimated at about 10.7 million inhabitants.
