The Dominican Republic’s capital Santo Domingo was the first European settlement in the Americas, started by Spanish soldier Nicolás de Ovando and about 2500 colonists. This legacy can still be seen in the city’s old town, the Zona Colonial. What’s left of the original fort walls encircle cobbled streets bordered by churches and museums such as the Cathedral of Santa María la Menor and the Casa de Tostado.
Along the coast you will find plenty of resorts and white sand beaches where you can relax in the sun with a cocktail or go swimming in the crystal clear water. The beach town of Punta Cana is one of the best places to visit, and its northernmost beach Bávaro just might be the best bit of sand on the island. If you are more of the sporting type, check out Kite Beach in the town of Cabarete.
For an experience with a different flavour, take yourself away from the beaches to explore the island interior, where sugar cane, coffee and cocoa plantations line the roads, and the welcoming locals go about their lives in small Dominican towns.
