    The information we knew about the Dominican capital was really useful and interesting. The bus picked us up about 8 a.m. The guide was telling many interesting facts about the country, Columbus, his difficult life, about Spanish colonialists, traditions, pirates… It was very interesting to listen to it. The road is a little bit long, but it was worth the trip.

    If you want to get acquainted with this country, it is worth visiting the capital of the Dominican Republic - the city of Santo Domingo. During our vacation in the Dominican Republic, among all the excursions we chose a trip Los Haitises national park and the excursion to Santo Domingo. The road to Santo Domingo is a bit exhausting, but it's a good opportunity to travel to the medieval times, the era when the island was discovered… The city of Santo Domingo is situated on the coast of the Caribbean Sea. Historical houses, paved streets, all kinds of shops with souvenirs, the cathedral of Santo Domingo and many other things. And above all, we learned many interesting historical facts about this awesome country. I gave 4 stars because of the heat outside.
