Thumbnails - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
We spent part of a day at the beginning of the trip and a full day at the end, in Santo Domingo. We stayed in the old part of town and were able to walk through some interesting history connected with the discovery and original exploration of the Americas. Santo Domingo was where Columbus set up the first colony and where he is now buried. We saw buildings that dated from the early 1500's
