As we make our way into the city of Santo Domingo, the first city to be built in the New World, we disembark on its waterfront. Breathtaking views portray a lowly Caribbean Sea.Discover ancient real estate wrought by accents epitomizing French neoclassical designs. Delicate facades elaborated in stucco entrap visitors in the thick of 500 years of history.We will visit the first institution of higher learning. Make a stopover through the most splendid and arty manifestations of the Dominican cultural realm.We will undertake a tour of the Colonial Zone, where monuments and museums highlight the most critical periods of colonial times. A walk in the Alcázar de Colón will enrapture us back to the era of the first Spanish conquistadors. Indulge in the solemnity of the Catedral Primada de América, where the seeds of a fervent Catholic faith were first sowed.

While we greatly enjoyed visiting this Capitol City, the tour atmosphere left a lot to be desired. Specifically, it felt a bit like we were being herded around, and you should expect a large tour group. I would have preferred a more intimate smaller group....More
