Things to see and do
The Dominic Republic is one of the larger Caribbean islands, with something for everyone.

You will witness the sounds of domino pieces being slapped on tables, backfiring mufflers, merengue and bachata blasting from corner stores and horns from the chaotic traffic. Here you will find one of the oldest churches of the modern world, in the heart of the city known as Zone Colonial.
