Tourism in Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo de Guzmán, better known as Santo Domingo, is the capital of the Dominican Republic, a paradise in the middle of the Caribbean that pleases one and all.
The first European city in the Americas, it was founded at the end of the 15th century a few years after the discovery of America by Columbus. The Dominican Republic is located on the island of Española and shares its territory with the neighboring state of Haiti. The city has strong colonial roots, as it was founded by Bartholomew Columbus. Since then it experienced sustained growth until the end of the 20th century when the development of tourism spurred the creation of infrastructures that have since led to an increase in population and an improvement in social status all over the island; an economy that relies on tourists seeking sand and sun.
Santo Domingo and the entire Dominican republic count on two key factors for tourism; the first and less important one is the colonial origin of the capital of the Republic, still seen in important buildings such as the Cathedral Primada de America, " Museo de las Casas Reales", the Monastery of San Francisco, the Palace of Columbus and the Church of the Dominican Convent. Other points of interest in the city are Boca Beach and the Fortress of Ozama. Due to all this, the city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
However, the Domican Republic’s strongest touristic attraction is its well-developed beach tourism, especially in such places as the internationally known beaches of Punta Cana. The main tourist areas are divided into Puerto Plata, also known as the Amber Coast. Santiago and the Cibao, where the main plantations of the country are found, specialize in tobacco. La Romana and Bayahibe, villas alternate with modest country homes, while in the fishing town of Bayahibe there is one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Playa Dominicus. Punta Cana and Bavaro, places for relaxing and having fun, is one of the zones that are most sought-after by Europeans. And in Samaná you will find one of the country’s most beautiful national parks. With its rich gastronomy, pleasant conversations, dreamy landscapes and all the relaxation in the world, the Dominican Republic is one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world.
