Dynamic communities and colorful neighborhoods are the ingredients which help make capital cities such as Santo Domingo such great places to visit. Consider staying in Malecon, situated just 1 mile (2 kilometers) to the south of central Santo Domingo.
Even though you've probably heard of the famous the Boca Chica in Santo Domingo, you may not have heard of the area's other noteworthy tourist highlights, including the Alcazar de Colon and Columbus Lighthouse.
Planning to spend time in Malecon? It is a popular destination and you can see why, with its close proximity to great sights like the National Palace and Cathedral of Santo Domingo.
Stay right by the Parque Colon, a much loved Malecon local attraction, where you'll have a good range of accommodations to select from, such as the Hotel Discovery, Hotel Luis V, Apart-Hotel Plaza Colonial, Duque de Wellington and Hotel Portes 9.
Malecon has a number of accommodations available, but you might enjoy staying within the city center close to both the Palace of Fine Arts and the National Theater. Choose from the Radisson Hotel Santo Domingo and Weston Suites & Hotel to stay a short distance from the Palace of Fine Arts, or select from the Holiday Inn Santo Domingo and Barceló Santo Domingo to be in closer proximity to the National Theater.
Are you and your travel companion planning a vacation in Santo Domingo? If you can't find the perfect accommodations in Malecon, consider securing a room in one of the nearby areas, Calle Las Damas and Colonial Zone.
