Referred too locally as “La Capital,” Santo Domingo is a vibrant mix of sights, sounds and aromas. The oldest European city in the New World, Santo Domingo was founded in 1496. The Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring churches, forts and other examples of 15th- and 16th-century colonial architecture. The Malecon, a waterfront promenade, parallels the tree-lined Avenida Independencia, a boulevard filled with shops and restaurants like El Meson De La Cava.
The Plaza de la Cultura is home to the National Theater and five culturally important museums, including the renowned Museum of Modern Art.
Located in Punta Caucedo approximately 12 miles southeast of the capital, Santo Domingo Las Americas International Airport (SDQ) is also near the beach resort city of Boca Chica. Highway 3, a scenic coastal road, connects the airport with the capital city and the lush Parque Mirador Sur, with its spectacular views of the Caribbean.
Several carriers offer a number of non-stop flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Santo Domingo that last approximately four hours. All major rental car agencies have operations at the airport. Upgrading your car rental to include GPS makes it easier to find places of interest in the city, such as the Faro a Colon, a monument to Christopher Columbus that reportedly holds the remains of the Great Navigator.
