Explore the vibrant capital of the Dominican Republic – Santo Domingo! This city is not only rich in history, but also offers a plethora of exciting places to visit and enjoy.
Arriving in Santo Domingo is an adventure in itself, as we took a bus journey from Punta Cana which provided a fantastic way to travel. Our beachside accommodation was conveniently located, allowing us to soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful coastline. Despite its small size with a population of around 3 million, Santo Domingo has a charm of its own. This is a refreshing change from larger cities like London or Bogota, and it gives you the opportunity to truly get to know the city.
During our stay in Santo Domingo, we opted for an Airbnb. However, we learned that it’s important to choose a Super Host accommodation for the most accurate description and reliable service. This way, you can ensure a pleasant stay.
The climate in Santo Domingo was delightful, with temperatures ranging from 24 to 30 degrees Celsius. One of the highlights of staying along the coast was the refreshing sea breeze, keeping everything cool and invigorating.
We had the luxury of cooking our own meals in the accommodation’s kitchen, but we couldn’t resist trying out some nearby eateries. Little Caesar and Wendy’s were conveniently located and provided delicious meals to satisfy our cravings.
While exploring Santo Domingo, we made sure to visit the city’s prominent attractions. Although the museums were closed on Sundays, we spent ample time exploring the charming old town. Independence Park and The Cathedral of Santa María la Menor, the oldest cathedral in the Americas, were among our favorite highlights.
In conclusion, Santo Domingo offers a perfect blend of history, beautiful beaches, and a vibrant atmosphere. Whether you’re a history enthusiast or simply looking for a relaxing getaway, this capital city has something to offer everyone. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this gem in the Caribbean!
