Santo Domingo de Guzmán : Michelin's recommendations
Santo Domingo has all the trappings of a major capital. Great museums, particularly the Plaza de la Cultura in the modern town; a remarkable architectural legacy from the past in the Colonial sector; a nightlife that takes place between the historic district and the Malecón, a seashore promenade by the Caribbean that is a great favourite with the locals. Santo Domingo is however best expressed and depicted by its 3-million strong heterogeneous, fun-loving and welcoming population. A capital worthy of the name.
