With its vibrant cultural heritage and UNESCO-listed Zona Colonial (Colonial Zone), Santo Domingo is not only the largest city of the Dominican Republic, but famously the oldest city of the Americas. Founded by Bartholomew Columbus in 1496, the city is a hotbed of historic monuments, from the Cathedral of Santa María la Menor, the first cathedral in the New World, to the grand Columbus Alcazar.

Visiting Santo Domingo from Punta Cana makes a popular choice for a day trip and there’s plenty to cram into a day tour. Discover the beginnings of the New World in the fascinating Zona Colonial; admire the 15th and 16th century colonial buildings; and stroll down the central boulevard of Calle de las Damas, the oldest paved street of the Americas. After discovering the city’s Spanish colonial history, learn about the region’s Taino Indian heritage, see the natural wonder of Los Tres Ojos and experience modern-day Santo Domingo as you browse the markets and tuck into typical Dominican foods.
