The food the culture the music. The spirit of the people and body compassion, curiosity, and fun. Plus the beaches are amazing, and did I mention the food


The zona colonial in Santo Domingo is beautiful, enchanting and wellcworth the trip. Outside is just a big city with no many attractions for a tourist, but some of the best Restaurants and Clubs
