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