Description

Visit Santo Domingo—the capital of the Dominican Republic and recipient of the American Capital of Culture award—and enjoy the rich culture and great historical past. See sites of the “City of Firsts,” including a cathedral, hospital, and university.

Come and enjoy the island's largest city. Founded by Bartholomew Columbus in 1496, notice the mixture of old and new as you enter the first continuously inhabited European settlement in the Americas. As the first seat of the Spanish-Colonial rule in the New World, Santo Domingo became the city of many firsts for the Americas. Visit Colonial Town to tour the first cathedral of the Americas. Pass the first street, university, and hospital of the New World.

Stop for lunch among the ancient cobblestone streets and watch as luxury cars share the roads with horse-drawn carriages. Next, stop at the oldest viceregal residence in the Americas, the Diego Columbus House, before your group makes the journey back to Punta Cana.

4.7 out of 5

Our guide was quite professional and informative. He gave the same information in 3 languages English, Spanish and French and did not favour one over another. The tour bus was quite comfortable and well air conditioned. The pace of the tour was good. The meal was quite good and there was also entertainment which was unexpected. We arrived at Santo Domingo at a reasonable tome and arrived back at the resort in time for dinner. Free time enough to see what we wanted to see.
