We will first stop at the magnificent Los Tres Ojos grotto to view the well-known freshwater lakes and its magnificent cave. After that, we’ll have a sightseeing tour to the Columbus Lighthouse, where the navigator’s alleged remains are thought to be.
We’ll stop to the Presidential Palace next. We’ll first take a look at this massive collection of neoclassical buildings from the outside before proceeding on to Santo Domingo’s lovely Ciudad Colonial, the city’s historic core.
The Cathedral Primada de America, the oldest cathedral on the continent, is the next stop on the path, which passes through the city’s historic district. The first stone house constructed in the new world will be visible when we stroll along Calle de Las Damas, the oldest street in the city. We’ll also visit the National Pantheon, home to the mortal remains of famous Dominican Republic historical personalities.
Plaza de Espaa, a square with lovely terraces and amazing views of the Ozama River, will be our next stop. The Alcázar de Colón, the old home of the Admiral, is also nearby. As we navigate its interior, you won’t be able to stop shooting pictures!
We’ll also stop by a gift shop to look at the Larimar semi-precious stone. The ideal chance to purchase a beautiful souvenir! Did you know that the only mine in the world that produces this semi-precious stone is in the Dominican Republic?
After that, we’ll give you some free time to drink a coffee, wander down Calle El Conde, and take in the lovely surroundings filled with squares and old buildings. After that, we’ll recharge with a delectable buffet meal featuring standard fare like beans, rice, and stewed pork.
We’ll proceed to the Malecón to complete the tour with a stunning view of the Caribbean Sea after a fantastic supper. The tour will end when we return you to your hotel, where you should arrive between 6 and 7:30 pm.

Santo Domingo (officially Santo Domingo de Guzmán) is the capital of the Dominican Republic. The city is located on the Caribbean Sea, at the mouth of the Ozama River, 155 km southeast of Santiago de los Caballeros. Founded by Bartolomé Colón in 1496, on the eastern margin of the Ozama River and then moved by Nicolás de Ovando in 1502 to the western margin of the same river.
Known for being the place of the first European settlement in America, and for being the first seat of the Spanish colonial government in the New World. It is located within the limits of the National District, and the latter in turn is bordered by three parts by the province of Santo Domingo.
It limits to the south with the Caribbean Sea, to the east with the city of Santo Domingo Este, to the west with Santo Domingo West and to the north with Santo Domingo North; between all they form the Great Santo Domingo. In Santo Domingo are the first cathedral and the first castle of America; both located in the Colonial City, home of Diego de Colón, Osama Fortress, street of the Count and the Ladies, the whole area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO
