Hotels in Santo Domingo
Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic’s capital city, was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1990, in recognition of the historic importance of its numerous colonial buildings. The city houses the oldest monastery in what colonisers called the “New World”, as well as the country’s university and cathedral, buildings that were constructed at the start of the 16th century. Since the city was founded, Santo Domingo has been the most important port in the Dominican Republic, and even today, the city is strongly influenced by the lively coastal culture. In addition to activities linked to coastal navigation, recreational fishing and diving, the city has many different leisure options in its busy streets that invite you to explore the city on foot and discover its magic first-hand, as well as the exotic character of its people.
Visitors can enjoy the rhythms that can be found throughout the Caribbean. They are interpreted by colourful urban musicians in the lively streets of the Dominican capital, by the city’s symphony orchestra and by avant-garde artists performing in the Casa de Teatro. Those who decide to enjoy a pleasant day shopping will be fascinated by the brilliance and beauty of semi-precious stones such as amber and larimar on sale in a variety of markets in Santo Domingo, as well as by the delicious tropical fruits and handmade cigars.
