Santo Domingo -Dominican Republic Destination Information
A sophisticated cosmopolitan city, Santo Domingo is the center for commerce and government, as well as the hub of history and culture in the Dominican Republic. Walk the storied streets in the Zona Colonial, where narrow stone streets, historic churches, and ancient forts echo the forgotten footsteps of Cortés, Ponce de León, and of course, Columbus himself. Santo Domingo has many New World firsts, including the first cathedral, monastery, seminary, military fort, and university. Modern day accommodations eclipse old world charm, as Santo Domingo is known throughout the Caribbean for its upscale hotels, restaurants, and vibrant nightlife.
