Best Things to Do in Santo Domingo
Santo Domingo is right on the Caribbean Sea, but still, this isn't a beach town. Instead, you should spend some time at historically significant sites like the Catedral Primada de América or the Fortaleza Ozama. And you also have to allot an hour or two for the architecturally significant Columbus Lighthouse. And then there's the nocturnally significant -- some say the nightlife along the Malecón is the best available in the Caribbean.
