Santo Domingo Day Trip
Between 7 and 8 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Punta Cana and set off for Santo Domingo.
Our first stop will be the spectacular Los Tres Ojos grotto to see the famous freshwater lakes and its spectacular cave. Then we'll go on a sightseeing tour of the Columbus Lighthouse, where the remains of the navigator are said to be located.
Next, we'll make a stop at the Presidential Palace. From the exterior, we'll observe this large-scale neoclassical architectural ensemble, before continuing our visit through the historic center of the city, Santo Domingo's beautiful Ciudad Colonial!
The route will then take us through the historic center of the city to see the Cathedral Primada de America, the oldest cathedral on the continent. We'll walk along Calle de Las Damas, the oldest street, where we'll see the first stone house built in the new world. We'll also go inside the National Pantheon where the remains of illustrious historical figures of the Dominican Republic rest.
Our next stop will be in Plaza de España, a square with beautiful terraces and breathtaking views of the Ozama River. This is also the location of the Alcázar de Colón, the Admiral's former residence. You won't be able to stop taking photos as we make our way through its interior!
We'll also visit a souvenir store and check out a semi-precious stone called Larimar. The perfect opportunity to pick up a nice souvenir! Did you know that the Dominican Republic is home to the only mine in the world where this semi-precious stone can be found?
Afterward, we'll leave you some free time to have a coffee, stroll along Calle El Conde and enjoy this beautiful environment full of squares and historic buildings. Then, we'll refuel with a delicious buffet lunch with typical dishes such as rice, meat stew and beans.
Following a delicious meal, we'll head to the Malecón to end the tour with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. After taking you back to your hotel, where arrival is scheduled between 6 and 7:30 pm, the tour will conclude.
