Must sees in DR!

I'll be arriving in Santo Domingo and from there going up north to Puerto Plata then to La Samana. Was just wondering if it will be worth stopping in Santiago on my way to Puerto Plata or should I just spend more time around the north coast. I'm not big into cities figure that SD will be enough for me, but I want to make sure!

Also if anybody can recommend any other destinations in DR it will be greatly appreciated!!!!

If spending time in Santo Domingo then I would skip Santiago and head to the north coast.

Probably best to miss out Santiago if you have spent time in SD. Another alternative is Constanza - 2000m up in the moutains off the main SD - Santiago road near Bonao. The valley is famous for vegetable production and is surrounded by pine forests and mountains - some stunning scenery.

I agree. Not too much to see in Santiago. If interested in going to Constanza you might consider Jarabacoa, which is also a mountain community. This would be a good stop if you're into water rafting or eco-tourism.

There is not too much to see in Santiago. But, if you do stop there, you've got to see the monument. Many people love Camp David because of the amazing view of the city.
