Description

Travel into the past with a day trip to Santo Domingo—the capital of the Dominican Republic. Admire architecture from the 16th century in the Zona Colonial, step into the first cathedral in the Americas, and roam among European art at the Alcázar de Colón as you discover the historic treasures of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Get picked up from your hotel in Punta Cana or Bavaro and set off in the direction of Santo Domingo. The largest metropolitan hub in the Caribbean, this bustling modern city is also home to a UNESCO-listed colonial old city that offers a fascinating glimpse into the past of the Dominican Republic. See the massive Columbus Lighthouse, a cross-shaped monument to Christopher Columbus, and then head into the Zona Colonial, listening as your guide describes the important role played by this fortified city for the Spanish.

Step beyond the stone facade of the Basilica Cathedral of Santa María la Menor, the oldest cathedral in the Americas. With an informative audio-guide, explore the church's 16th-century architecture and the paintings, furniture, and sculptures in its treasury. From there, follow your guide through the Alcázar de Colón, the city's original Vice-regal residence, which is now a world-class museum. Break for lunch at a local restaurant, and then make a final stop at a nearby market to browse for souvenirs before the ride back to your hotel.

Trip was long, on the Expedia site, it said they would pick us up at 8 AM which was a Lie, we were picked up at 6:15 AM and did not return to our hotel until 8:15 PM. Tour guide Johnny took us to 5 different tourist trap location to buy Souvenirs instead of giving us a tour of Santo Domingo. I do not recommend this tour
