Dominican Republic: City Breaks
A Land of Contrasts
A city break in the Dominican Republic is a great idea if you want to limit yourself to one city, but given the long-haul flight it probably isn’t the best way to enjoy the wealth of options that the country has to offer. A city break in the Dominican Republic is best taken at Santo Domingo, the nation’s capital. Santo Domingo is a hotbed of Dominican arts, history, culture and entertainment, meaning that you will never be tired of this ancient and vibrant settlement. If you wish to focus all of your attention on it, then Santo Domingo can be a very rewarding place. Other city break options would include the city of La Romana, another diverse and exciting place in which to enjoy the variety of Dominican life. If you are visiting from Europe then a city break in the Dominican Republic would deprive you of the pleasure of some of the incredible sights that lie out in the countryside or in the smaller towns and settlements dotted around the nation. Whilst a city break in the Dominican Republic can be highly fulfilling, it is probably better to seek more from your visit than just one place.
