ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
There are over 350 beaches scattered along the hundreds of miles of coastline, making water activities a priority. The natural attractions offer mountain climbing, nature tours, hiking and horseback riding.
Santo Domingo's Zono Colonial, "the oldest city in The Americas" features many old churches, museums, shops, cafes and bistros.
When Christopher Columbus landed in 1492, he said, "There is no island that is more beautiful in the world". Many visitors today echo that sentiment as they enjoy the sandy beaches, the turquoise waters, lush green valleys, tall mountains and some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean.
