Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo is an historical city with many thrilling activities! Around the city are lots of golf courses, a coral reef, a natural park, caves, and plenty to please all travelers. It is a city that combines modernity and past, action and relaxation! Santo Domingo praises to be the first city of the Americas. This is well exposed in many corners of the city. From the Monasterio ruins of San Fransico to the Casa de Ovando, the historical sites are numerous and gleaming. At the Tainos Museum, artifacts linked to this civilization will give you a preview of life before the arrival of Christopher Columbus on the Hispaniola. Afterwards you'll be able to go to the Alcazar de Columb palace, a majestic construction made possible by the work of Tainos slaves. What an irony! Those visits will help you to better understand the fundamental myths and the history of the Dominican Republic. This historical cachet makes the walks in town very pleasant. On a terrace or in a café, take the time to mix this charming scenery with local specialty. Why not tempt yourself with a dessert like the El Chaca and fresh coffee derived from a national culture? You'll then have the chance to taste the rhythm of the capital's life. Santo Domingo is also appreciated for its proximity with the beaches. You'll be able to practice lots of nautical sports. Kayaking, skiing, windsurfing, sailing tours are only a few of other possible activities you can do. The diving at the underwater national park of La Caleta is also a must see for fish , crustaceans, and coral lovers. Golf fans will be happy on one of the numerous courses in the area. When night comes, Santo Domingo wakes up with its shows, its trendy bars, and its busy clubs. You'll be able to dance all night without any problem. The city is perfect for gathering in groups and partying! Santo Domingo is a destination to discover and rediscover again and again!
