Head to Plaza de Espana (Plaza de Armas), a common meeting area for locals and home to some of the city’s most important buildings. Surrounded by cafes with outdoor patios, the square is a great place to grab a bite, a drink, or to watch local life go by. The large open square is home to Alcazar de Colon, the oldest Viceregal residents in America. Look for the house of Diego Columbus, son of Christopher Columbus, which sits on the square.

  • Get comfortable and take protector solar! and beware of those who offer tour or things like that. There are museums everywhere and is pretty clean.

  • It is an area full of restaurants, with outdoor terraces. A very good place for a dinner romantic

  • A place that you can spend quite well, both day as in the night, surrounded by Museum and a good view. It can also be leveraged to make good photographs.

  • Quite a nice square with some good (albeit quite expensive) places to eat on one side. It's also not far from many of Santo Domingo's main sites. But I did think it lacked wasn't overly picturesque nor did it really have much of a centre point.
  • If you are a bohemian or love "small" history, then this place is fine. However, I am a person that likes peace and quiet, so this is not the place for me. Trying to park, or even drive, around this area is a real nightmare.
  • Love the environment of La Plaza de España! Polite and very vivid people fill the beautiful streets of stone. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore the culture of the Dominican Republic.
  • The hearth of Zona Colonial, there you can find the Columbus Palace ans some good restaurants.
  • Excelente lugar para distraerse y botar el estrés. Vigilado e iluminado.
