Explore Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo is the vibrant seaside capital of the Dominican Republic, as well as a cultural, commercial and fashion center. The city pulses with history, and at the same time is moving full steam into the future. Historic enclaves meet soaring modern buildings in the most populous city in the Caribbean, making it the perfect spot for a spectacular tropical vacation. Recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, this colonial city displays 16th-century architecture along cobblestone lanes that echo the footsteps of explorers Columbus, Cortes and Ponce de Leon.

From classical music, opera and ballet to native jewelry and handicrafts, Santo Domingo is alive with Dominican culture. Take in a play, peruse the displays of an art museum, or simply stroll the streets lined with eclectic handicraft vendors and amber jewelry stores.

Walk along the Malecon boardwalk to admire gorgeous ocean views, take a tour of the Botanical Gardens, or shop for linen guayaberas (shirts), leather handbags or designer clothing. The city also hosts a merengue festival in July and a three-day Latin music event in October.

For golf enthusiasts, the area around Santo Domingo is home to several world-class courses. Vacations dedicated to golf are common due to the combination of outstanding, year-round warm weather and the varied terrain. Caribbean weather allows for play even during rainy days, when brief showers quickly give way to clear skies.

Being a cosmopolitan city, the cuisine in Santo Domingo is as varied as any international district, including Spanish, Italian, Middle Eastern, Indian, Japanese and contemporary Dominican cuisine. Most of the restaurants are found along the seaside edge of the city, in an area known as the Malecon or in the Colonial City area.

The nightlife in Santo Domingo is nonstop. Some of the most happening clubs in all of the Caribbean come to life here. Dancing is the national pastime. Aside from the pulse-pounding clubs, the city has a wealth of theaters, classical music venues, cabarets and casinos for those looking for action.
