Free admission

The Caribbean is known for its brilliant colors and vibrant culture. Travelers to Dominican Republic will find this to be especially true amid the lively streets of Santo Domingo, where the country’s urban center is ripe with the smells and sounds of Latin America.

But visitors who venture to Ciudad Colonial (Zona Colonial)—one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods—will find a tiny enclave filled with traditional European-style architecture, well-kept parks, cobblestone streets and artistic nods to great adventurers.

A mighty bronze statue of Christopher Columbus sits at the center of Parque Colon, and nearby Calle Las Damas is the oldest paved road in the New World. These historic sites, paired with incredible architecture unlike anywhere in Santo Domingo, are just part of what make Zona Colonial a popular destination for travelers looking to escape the hustle of the city, as well as those who want to experience the nation’s capital as it used to be.

A comfortable bus will take you from the hotel and we will embark on our journey (drive time is 2 hours). Our first stop will be the Three Eyes cave. This cave got its name thanks to three crystal clear lakes located at a depth of 15 meters. However, in 1916, the fourth lake was discovered, which is considered to be the most spectacular. And we will definitely visit it! Our next stop will be the colonial city. Here we can plunge into the atmosphere of authenticity and feel the spirit of the Spanish conquerors. You will enjoy an exciting walk along the first street of the New World, a visit to the house of Diego Columbus, a fort of the 16th century and the first temple of the New World, where the ashes of Christopher Columbus were found.
