Dominican Republic - Santo Domingo (Chapter)
This is the Santo Domingo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dominican Republic guidebook.
Amid the cobblestone streets, it would be easy to forget Santo Domingo is in the Caribbean. But this is an intensely urban city, and it somehow manages to embody the contradictions central to the Dominican experience: a living museum, a metropolis crossed with a seaside resort, and a business and political center with a laid-back spirit.
- wander the 500-year-old backstreets of the Zona Colonial
- enter the Catedral Primada de América - the first church in the New World - and imagine how 16th-century worshippers felt
- root for the home team at raucous Estadio Quisqueya, one of the premier places to watch a baseball game in the Dominican Republic
- restaurants & accommodations
