In the footsteps of the great explorers...
Santo Domingo is one of the Caribbean's most vibrant cities, with a 12-block Colonial Zone to rival that of Old San Juan in Puerto Rico. The Old Town remains partially enclosed by remnants of the original city wall-stroll the narrow streets and explore the old stone buildings. In Santo Domingo you'll find one of the grandest shopping bazaars of the Caribbean, with such "hot" items as hand-wrapped cigars and local handcrafts. From gambling to merengue, Santo Domingo is one of the liveliest cities in the Caribbean after dark.
