What to See and Do in Santo Domingo

Despite its proximity to the Caribbean, Santo Domingo is not a typical beach town. While the beaches are lovely, the area is also home to some of the oldest and most historically significant sites in the Americas.

  • Visit the Catedral Primada de América - This beautiful church is the oldest in all of the Americas.
  • Tour the Fortaleza Ozama - History buffs will want to allot an hour or two to explore this ancient Spanish fort.
  • Experience the Columbus Lighthouse - Some call it a masterpiece and others find it downright unappealing. The sprawling cross-shaped limestone structure showcases elements of several styles of architecture including Gothic, plateresque, and Baroque. It is also known for being the resting place of Christopher Colombus.

In addition, night owls will love the city's exciting nightlife --many say the nightclubs on the Malecón nightclubs are the best in the Caribbean.
