Santo Domingo Travel Tips
Most Beautiful Stones: Larimar Museum
The Larimar Museum showcases the beautiful natural aquamarine stone that can only be found in the Dominican Republic. The gorgeous gem is the color of the Caribbean Sea. Make sure to visit the free museum and stop at the gift shop to take a piece of the Caribbean home with you.
Best Seafood: El Cantábrico
For a dinner just a little on the fancy side, check out El Cantábrico for yummy Spanish style seafood in Santo Domingo. They pair classic Spanish cuisine with a hint of Dominican Republic flair to make delicious entrees. Make sure to heighten your meal with one of their great wine selections and finish it off with something sweet.
Best History Lesson: El Conde
After hanging out in Parque Colon, make sure to wander onto Calle El Conde, where you'll learn the history of Dominican independence.
