Santo Domingo Travel Guide
Why? Thousands are drawn to the beautiful Dominican
Republic for its miles of pearly white sand beaches, the plethora
of activities, and its luxury resorts and happening night-life, but
no-one who visits should fail to travel to Santo Domingo, the
capital, to complete their holiday experience. A holiday in Santo
Domingo is vibrant and exciting with plenty to see and do,
including the spot where Christopher Columbus founded the first
settlement in the Americas.
When? It is possible to enjoy a Santo Domingo holiday any time of year because the city, like the rest of the Dominican Republic, enjoys a hot, sunny, tropical climate, somewhat tempered by sea breezes. The rainy season is between May and November, but showers are short and sharp and should not interfere with holiday fun.
Who for? Party people who enjoy a wild night out and days relaxing on the palm-fringed Malecon (promenade) will relish a holiday in Santo Domingo, as well as those interested in the history of Columbus and the conquistadors.
