Sun, surf and sand
Santo Domingo beaches are the stuff of legend. Providing the setting for the premier Santo Domingo resorts, hotels and cafes, the water is clear and warm and the sand is soft and inviting. Whether you like to snorkel, swim or just sit back, once you get to the beach, you won’t want to leave!
An artistic and cultural hub
The home of the Santo Domingo University is also the home of fascinating history, a brilliant and thriving arts scene, musicians and museums. Experience that culture firsthand while exploring historic Santo Domingo churches, people-watching in hip, local cafes or feeling the groove of live music in a Santo Domingo nightclub.
Steeped in rich history, Santo Domingo is the oldest European city in the Americas. Officially founded on August 5th, 1498, by Christopher Columbus, many aspects of the old way of doing things are still embraced by locals. Treat yourself to an exquisite piece of Santo Domingo jewellery or become entranced by a master potter’s hands bringing a unique piece of Santo Domingo pottery to life. The people of Santo Domingo are what makes the city hum.
