Already more than 20 years ago!

Nature & Monuments

The walled Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo is where the first cathedral, monastery, university, customs house and hospital or the “New World” were build, all historical buildings dating back to the time of Christopher Columbus.

Apart from its endless coconut treed beaches protected by reefs perfect for diving, the Dominican Republic also has a very colorful country side, vast sugar cane fields, mangrove swamps, savannas and rushing rivers for rafting, all of it crowned by the highest mountain range in the Caribbean.


Dominican dishes are a reflection of Spanish and African historical influence. Sancocho is the national dish, a stew with different meats, beans, plantains & yams. Other popular meals are roast pork, all types of fish and seafood, and an extremely wide choice of exquisite tropical fruits. Try the battidas, no doubt the best milkshakes ever.

The country is also famous for its excellent rums distilled made from local sugar cane crops and for its tobacco with cigar brands that compete in excellence with those of Cuba. Don´t leave without trying “a fria”, typical Dominican beer by the name of Presidente and served at freezing point.
