Flights to Santo Domingo Las Americas

The capital of the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo is a laid back but historic city known for its vibrant nightlife and blessed with beautiful weather. Best of all, it’s still fairly undiscovered by tourists.

The oldest European city in the Americas, Santo Domingo has a well earned spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Walking through the Zona Colonial, with its cobblestoned streets, you could easily be in Spain or Portugal. The vibrant sound of merengue music quickly brings you back to the Caribbean, while the exclusive clubs and fantastic restaurants lend a cosmopolitan edge to the beautiful city.  Go now, before it’s discovered.
