Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic and a UNESCO World Heritage Site
It is the oldest permanent settlement of Europeans in the Americas and one of the most populous cities in the Caribbean. The city combines Old World charm with a modern Latin American style. Santo Domingo not only offers medieval palaces and fortresses, but also world-class nightlife and shopping. It's easy to spot wild beaches and hidden gems like a salsa and merengue club inside a huge underground cave.
