Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic

Welcome to Santiago de los Caballeros, a dynamic city nestled in the heart of the Cibao Valley and affectionately known as “Ciudad Corazón.” Named after the Spanish aristocrats who settled here in 1495, Santiago was the Dominican Republic’s first capital until an earthquake struck in 1562. Today, it thrives as the country’s second-largest city, bustling with commerce, finance, education, and cultural vibrancy.

At the heart of Santiago stands the Monumento a Los Héroes de la Restauración, fondly referred to as El Monumento, symbolizing the nation’s struggle for independence. Against the backdrop of the Cordillera Central mountain range, the city offers ample opportunities for outdoor adventures, including hiking amid scenic landscapes. Santiago’s rich history and culture are on full display at the Centro Cultural León, showcasing the region’s heritage and serving as the birthplace of the Mirabal Sisters and several Dominican presidents. 

The city’s vibrant nightlife scene, with over 100 night clubs, bars, and lounges, provides youthful energy and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Despite its urban style, Santiago remains deeply rooted in tradition. Baseball enthusiasts cheer on the Aguilas Cibaeñas team, while artisans showcase their talent in the surrounding areas. Santiago’s Carnival is a highlight, featuring elaborate costumes and vibrant celebrations. Beyond its cultural offerings, Santiago is renowned for its tobacco production, earning it the moniker “Cigar Country.” Visitors can explore cigar factories in Tamboril, enjoying free daily tours and exclusive shopping experiences.

Just minutes from the city center, tranquility awaits in the picturesque Cibao heartland, offering a peaceful retreat from the city’s fast pace. Conveniently located a half-hour from the city center, the Cibao International Airport (STI) serves as a gateway to Santiago’s vibrant charm and captivating allure. Book your airport transfers and rides with Prestige Limousine Service.
