Description

Uncover the highlights and hidden gems of Santo Domingo on a guided city tour from Bavaro or Punta Cana. Explore the wealth of colonial architecture that has led to the area being recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. After a pickup from your hotel, embark on a journey to the New World’s oldest city in America, Santo Domingo. Learn how the city was settled in the years following Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Caribbean on his first voyage. Your first stop is The Three Eyes National Park, a nature reserve and open-air limestone cave system with a series of crystal clear lakes known as the “eyes.” Venture into a subway cave once used by the Taino Indians for their rituals. Hit the vibrant streets of Santo Domingo, mixing walking tours and bus rides to fully immerse yourself in the Dominican capital's history. From the Alcazar de Colon to the National Pantheon, and even the First Cathedral of America, dive deep into the rich heritage of this colonial city. After visiting various landmarks, take a well-deserved break at a local restaurant to indulge in a typical lunch with drinks. With your energy replenished, continue your exploration to get a glimpse of the modern area, passing by the National Palace, the seat of power in the Dominican Republic. As your tour of Santo Domingo draws to an end, return to your hotel with a newfound appreciation of its history and heritage.
