    The first stop in the capital will be at the Three Eyes National Park with underground caverns and lagoons with gorgeous blue waters used by the Taino Indians (the Dominican Republic’s original inhabitants). There are many steps (around 60) down into the open air caverns so you have to be in good physical conditions.

    From the 3 Eyes Cave we will then move to the Colonial Zone. Our first peek at the Colonial Zone comes at the Columbus Palace (Alcazar de Colon). Completed in 1514, it was the home of Christopher Columbus’s son, Diego. This is a beautiful museum with lots of original old furniture and art which was purchased from Spain. From the Palace we walk through the historic Plaza de Espana and onto Calle Las Damas (the first paved street of the New World). Lunch is then served at one of the typical Dominican restaurants in Santo Domingo buffet-style

You will have some free time for shopping and you’ll visit a spacious gift shop selling nearly every Dominican keepsake imaginable. After leaving the Colonial Zone you’ll pass by some of the modern areas of the capital and the National Palace where the Dominican President and the highest level government officials have their offices. Then back on our way to Punta Cana.

We’re then off to the oldest streets of the Western Hemisphere in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, a 16 square block neighborhood declared a UNESCO World Heritage in 1992.
