  • DR's "Old Town," go during the day, there are tour guides who you can haggle with and they will show you around the various tourist spots.
  • A beautiful area filled with vendors, restaurants, museums, and more! Highly recommend anybody visiting Santo Domingo to make a stop here. Highly recommend checking out the restaurants too - a bit pricey, but worth the experience. Make sure to check out the historical sites in the area as well.

  • One of the best places to go in Santo Domingo, and by obligation, if you go to the capital of the Republic should not pass. Parks, museums, bars, restaurants, shops of all kinds, hardware store, super market etc. The area has everything you need. A good place for walking, with the family, couple or single. What is missing is a better lighting, remove the wiring in some streets and a most efficient way in the management of waste and destitute.
