Old Santo Domingo – The Colonial Zone
The Colonial Zone comes recommended for a visit of at least a day, to allow time to take in some of the highlights of the old city, such as its Alcazar and Cathedral Santa Maria la Menor. The evenings also light up with a myriad of mainstream restaurant and bar choices in the Colonial Zone, with the area’s signature alfresco terraced seating where guests, owners and crew alike can feel at ease.
