One of the oldest cities in the Americas, Santo Domingo is a real mix of styles, attitudes and architecture. The old Zona Colonial boasts one of the oldest churches in the continent and charming cobblestone streets. Elsewhere in the city, merengue music reminds you that this is the Caribbean while the business district, industrial areas and coastal seaside resort all place their own competing stamps on the city’s identity.
Santo Domingo is blessed with warm weather pretty much all year round, but you should be aware that hurricane season falls between June and November. However, the warning system is good and the risks low so this shouldn’t necessarily put you off traveling at these times. It’s also be a bit wetter in the summer months, but showers don’t usually last for too long.
January and February are great months to visit, with warm weather and plenty of sunshine. Flights and accommodation are also not too expensive at this time.Guide-FlightsGuide-Flights

Las Americas International Airport (SDQ) is the main entry point for most visitors traveling from the US or other countries. The airport is located in Punta Caucedo, just outside the city. It is the second largest in the country, after Punta Cana, and with more than 3.5 million passengers passing through its doors each year, it’s also one of the busiest in the Caribbean.
From the airport, the cheapest way into town is using the Guagua buses from the upper level of the terminal. Taxis are also available from the airport. They are more expensive but you have the added convenience of being taken exactly where you need to go. Some of the city’s hotels also offer free shuttle services, so it’s worth asking in advance.
A choice of international and domestic carriers offer cheap flight tickets to Santo Domingo, including:
The quickest way to get around in the city is by using the metro system, which is very cheap for most journeys. However, it is not a comprehensive system as yet and only covers limited areas.
Buses are also very affordable, although there are fewer serving the main tourism areas. Taxis in the city tend to be pre-booked, with your hotel being able to help you arrange this. They are seldom metered so always agree a price before you get in to save a lengthy discussion at the far end.
Renting a car is a good option, with agencies at the airport for convenient onward travel. A car is a particularly good option if you are intending of getting out of the city to visit the nearby Punta Cana. Driving in the city can be a little hectic but the main coastal road Route 3 is generally safe to drive.
The Zona Colonial lies at the heart of the first city of the Americas, with the Primada de America cathedral at its center. Visit the Parque Colon and jump on board the Chu Chu Colonial train to see most of the major sights. The 16th century Fort Ozama is the oldest European military base on the continent and well worth a visit.
If you’re in the mood for exploring a tropical paradise, then the Three Eyes Park is a must. It’s an oasis in the middle of the city with open air caves and sunken cenotes. To fully relax, head from here to the Malecon, which runs alongside the Caribbean Sea from the Ozama river. People come here to promenade at all times of the day but it is particularly beautiful at sunset.
No visas are required for US citizens for stays of up to 30 days. The currency in Santo Domingo is the Dominican Peso.
