Its once of the most happening place in Santo Domingo and kind of must visit for every tourist coming to Santo Domingo. The street is around 2-3 Kms long and since no vehicle is allowed one can wonder around. There are lots of shops selling...More

Zona Colonial offers a variety on interesting historic building and locations. So if one is familiar with the history, close your eyes at Plaza Colon and you will see Columbus back.

Music, walking and dancing. Great place to walk off a heavy dinner. We ate at Jalao and it was great. There’s valet parking right by the restaurant.

This part of the city is really wonderful, it has been refurbished and it is really nice, full of life and of welcome preserved monuments.
