Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic with approximately 2.5 million inhabitants, and is the country’s center of politics, economics and culture.
Santo Domingo is the first city of the New World, where the modern history of America began. Discover the first cathedral, the first hospital, walk through the first roads that were built in the colonial area and imagine how it was around 500 years ago – an opportunity that should not be missed!
In addition to the historical importance of Santo Domingo, the city is, without a doubt, a destination for fun lovers. The city hosts the largest celebration of Carnival in the country, merengue festivals, nightclubs, department stores, shopping. No other city in the Caribbean has a greater variety of restaurants and nightlife than Santo Domingo (or 'capital,' as the Dominicans call it). There are so many restaurants in this city that is virtually impossible even for those who live in it to have visited them all. It is a city that never sleeps.
