Prepare to discover a different side to the Caribbean as we take you on a whistle stop tour of Santo Domingo’s many historic and cultural highlights.
Your local guide will explain about the city’s history, nature and vibrant culture. Together we will marvel at the many ‘first’ buildings that are scattered across Santo Domingo; the first convent in the Americas, the first hospital, the first restaurant and so on.
We’ll walk through hidden alleys and stop for a freshly brewed coffee and we’ll head to El Conde Street to meet some local artisans.
Then we’ll check out the neighborhood of San Miguel and meet some of the friendly locals that live here. We’ll taste delicious traditional Dominican treats at an old bakery and then we’ll savour a frozen beer surrounded by the stunning ruins of an old monastery.
Our last cultural stop will be at the stunning renaissance-style National Pantheon. Our tour will finish with a walk along the Calle El Conde and a stop at Columbus Park. Here we will leave you to explore the rest of our buzzing city.
Don’t forget to ask your local guide for restaurant tips and a few more sightseeing recommendations, there is always plenty to eat, see and drink on our gorgeous island!
