Experience geographic diversity, fascinating history, and spirited culture in the Caribbean’s second-largest nation.
Santo Domingo is a thriving city in the heart of the Dominican Republic with colonial architecture and ancient landmarks on every corner. Stroll along charming cobbled streets and discover museums, churches, and galleries alongside an array of buzzing restaurants, nightlife, and shops. The iconic Colonial Zone features a range of landmarks, including Catedral Primada de America and Plaza de la Cultura. Considered by many as the Caribbean’s most geographically diverse destination, you’ll find blue beaches alongside wild mountain terrain, rainforests, and desert. Jump from waterfalls, trek through rainforests, or watch whales from secluded beaches. Take a sightseeing tour to experience the history and culture of Santo Domingo, including an ancient fortress, the new world’s first monastery, and a 16th century cathedral. For something more modern, try authentic drinks in trendy cafés, or dance to merengue beats at Club Murcielago, the city’s most famous night club, and if you brush up on your dance skills, you can show them of at Festival de Merengue.
