My name is Tessa.
I'am going to Dominican republic in november 2017. And I will be staying 3 days in Santo domingo and 3 days in punta cana. We're going to visit the 27 waterfalls in puerto plata. But we don't know what else we're going to do. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Hi Tessa!

So nice to hear you are coming to Santo Domingo.

The best place to do things by yourself is colonial district. There you can visit many museums related to the first city of the new world history, Santo Domingo.

I suggest the Columbus Palace museum, the Royal House Museum and the Columbus Lighthouse. A visit to Three Eyes Caves National Park is amazing opportunity to see the underground world with beautiful interior lakes and aboriginal history.

There other options of fun to do to near Santo Domingo, but you will have to hire local guides to take you there.

Santodomingourbanadventures.com has a few options to visit Santo Domingo with a local, and rinconesdemipais.com has many options for the ones that want to know the off the beaten path places full with real culture and nature of the Dominican Republic.

Hope it helps!

Further questions just let me know.
