Santo Domingo: Ciudad Colonial

 

The Santo Domingo Colonial Fest (CFEST) is a celebration to commemorate the culture, cuisine, and history of the Dominican Republic, creating awareness and appreciation of the Dominican authenticity and idiosyncrasy.

 

This festival celebrates the First City of America with cultural activities that last a full weekend. In three days you can enjoy music, theater plays, artistic performances and culinary offerings.

 

Since 2012 it has been meeting ground for Dominican families in the Colonial City. All kinds of people with different artistic tastes converge in a single event.

 

The festival represents recreation, fun, enjoy the outdoors, quality time with family and friends. The sentiment behind is how special Santo Domingo for being the first city in the New World and the cultural and historical baggage that entails.

 

Another important aspect of Santo Domingo Colonial Fest is to promote historical knowledge of the city, through buildings, museums and monuments to colonial times. At these points, they are carried out activities such as parades of traditional costumes of the sixteenth century, living statues and presentations dressed as characters from the history of Santo Domingo.

Some of the most beautiful places in the Dominican Republic

Back in 2008, the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Tourism glossed the DR as the country “that has it all.”

The country is still sticking with that slogan and it’s easy to see why:

  • Year-round tropical climate.
  • Lush coastline with 250 miles of beaches.
  • Historic cities and culture.
  • Mountains.
  • Waterfalls.
  • Golf courses.
  • We could go on.

PLAYA MORON

Is one of the gorgeous Samana Peninsula´s smaller beaches. Visitors have a good chance to spotting a humpback whale during the January-March mating season.

EL SALTO DEL LIMON WATERFALL, SAMANÁ

It´s a mile-and-a-half trek through the jungle to get to the top of the cascades. The reward is the 130-feet-high El Salto del Limon, which flows into a natural pool that´s great for swimming.

CATHEDRAL OF SANTA MARIA LA MENOR

Dating to 1512, the Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor in Santo Domingo is widely considered the oldest cathedral in the Americas. Gothic architecture, 500-year-old mahogany doors and the former site of Christopher Columbus´ tomb all wow visitors.

PUERTO PLATA ``TELEFERICO``

A popular excursion in Puerto Plata is the ``teleferico`` tour. Panoramic views of the city and ocean can be seen from the cable cars. A massive statue of Jesus Christ stands at the top of Mount Isabel de Torres.

The protected forest of Los Haitises has limited road access. It´s become a popular eco-tourism destination, with most visitors arriving by boat. A variety of geographical landscapes are found in the region.

ALTOS DE CHAVON, LA ROMANA

Altos de Chavon is a massive replica 16th-century Mediterranean village. It´s home to a cultural center, an archeological museum and an amphitheater, but just walking around is impressive.

BAYAHIBE BEACH

Bayahibe Beach has a bar and a lighthouse and not much else, but it´s known as one of the nicest places in the country to watch a sunset.

JUANILLO BEACH, CAP CANA

Juanilo Beach is a calm, secluded public beach on the country's East Coast.
