Santo Domingo Travel Guide

You're sure to love the capital city of the Dominican Republic for its charming atmosphere and lovely coastal setting. Santo Domingo sits at the top of the Caribbean Sea, on the southern coast of the Dominican and was one of the first established cities in the Western world over 400 years ago. The rich colonial history has provided some lovely examples of architecture which have been preserved specifically in the Colonial City section of the city which sits on the long, winding Ozama River. UNESCO has also declared the Colonial City a world heritage site.

As the largest city in the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo has countless options for dining, shopping centres, cafes, bars, exciting night clubs and several types of accommodations alike. Beyond its handsomely preserved colonial past, Santo Domingo's cultural and artistic versatility is showcased by the lively theatres, concert halls and countless galleries. The palaces of the Colonial City have some fascinating museums and the Plaza de la Cultura, a vast, green oasis in the heart of the city houses four different museums. The nearby beaches of Boca Chica, Juan Dolio and La Caleta all feature some great coral reefs that are protected by law and calm Caribbean waters that provide excellent swimming and diving conditions year round.
