Saona Island Paradise From Punta Cana

230 reviews
Travel from Punta Cana to Saona Island, a showstopper among the Dominican Republic’s off-shore islands. Get there with a quick and easy speedboat and return at a more leisurely pace aboard a spacious catamaran that includes music and an open bar. Start your all-inclusive, full-day outing with pickup at your hotel.

It's really interesting walking around and visit the historical city center of Santo Domingo. It's full of culture and history about the Spanish, French and American domination of the past everywhere. The only thing a bit sad is that the infrastructures and the streets are quite abandoned and dirty. Vendors try to sell you every kind of local stuff, and after a while this can be annoying. They can improve the service and the contact with the tourists a lot.

Old cobbles streets and lots of history make this a great place to walk around. Good for kids too! Lots of space in the big plaza to run!

It is impossible to visit Santo Domingo and miss its "Ciudad Colonial"! This is the historic central area where, at the end of the 15th century, the first Spanish explorers, led by Christopher Columbus' younger brother, Don Bartolomé Colón, founded the city of "Santo Domingo de Guzmán", on the East bank of the "Río Ozama" in the colony of "La Hispaniola". In 1502, after a terrible earthquake, the town was resettled on the West bank of the same river, in what became the actual city and the oldest area continuously inhabited in the New World! Amazing history! And history is everywhere, at every single corner of "Ciudad Colonial", a Unesco appointed, since 1990, "World Heritage Site"! Take your time and stroll along its cobblestone streets, allowing yourself to discover its monuments and beauty, slowly and pleasantly! Start from the remnants of its old defensive walls and visit landmarks such as the "Puerta del Conde, Calle El Conde, Plaza de España, Alcázar de Colón, Museo de las Casa Reales, Calle las Damas, Fortaleza Ozama, Catedral Basílica de Santa María la Menor, Panteón Nacional, Plaza María de Toledo, Calle Isabel la Católica, Casa del Cordón, Casa de Tostado, Malecón de Santo Domingo" and so on! Absolutely unmissable! Enjoy!
