    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you go by the capital of the Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo) be sure to stop by the Zona Colonial, where relics of the Colonial era are still alive and well preserved. You can see the Alcazar de Colon, where Columbus' family resided all surrounded by the Ozama river. A few minutes away is El Malecon which you can see a great view of the Caribbean Sea, many high class hotels, restaurants and scenery.

    Independence day is February 27th, where many carnivals take place, especially in El Malecon!

    Favorite thing: People throw garbage into the sea along the Malecon, which is sad. Here you can see a photo of the shore in the aquarium park where it is clean and beautiful.
