Santo Domingo Day Trip

Between 7 and 8 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Punta Cana and set off for Santo Domingo.

Our first stop will be the Los Tres Ojos grotto to see the four lakes inside: Azufre, La Nevera, Las Damas and Zaramagullones. Then we'll stop at the Columbus lighthouse, where the remains of the navigator are said to be located. Next, we'll make a brief stop at the Presidential Palace, a large-scale neoclassical architectural ensemble.

The route will then take us through the historic centre of the city to see the Cathedral Primada de America, the oldest cathedral on the continent, and the Plaza de España, where the Alcázar de Colón, the Admiral's former residence, stands. We'll have the opportunity to explore the Colonial Zone and learn the most curious facts about the past, and you won't stop taking pictures!

We'll visit an amber workshop to see the process the resin goes through until it becomes a conifer fossil. In addition, we'll also see the semi-precious stone Larimar, a variety specific to the Dominican Republic.

After the visit, you'll have 1 hour of free time to buy souvenirs. Finally, we'll enjoy a buffet lunch with rice, meat stew and beans.

The tour will end returning to your hotel between 5 and 6:30 pm.
