About Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo is the most populated city in the Caribbean, and stands in 10th place as the highest populated city of Latin America. In the entire Dominican Republic, this is the largest economic, political, commercial, industrial and cultural centre. Santo Domingo was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990. Stroll through the different cobblestone streets in the Colonial Railway to learn about the architectural richness of the historic centre. The locals are really proud of their country, and you can see their rich culture by visiting different monuments, rich architectural buildings, different parks and museums, all of which they have constructed in honour of the brave heroes who fought for the independence of the country. Beyond its colonial history, the city also boasts of hot popular clubs, cultural institutions and posh restaurants. Experience all the sounds of the Caribbean here from domino pieces slapped on tables, horns from bustling traffic, merengue, bachata music blasting from corner stores, and create vibrant holiday memories that you shall never forget.
