Santiago de los Caballeros — 4 nights

Founded in 1496 by Christopher Columbus' brother, Santiago de los Caballeros was among the very first European settlements in the Americas, which explains its nickname: "First Santiago of the Americas." Today, the city represents one of the Western Hemisphere's major financial, cultural, and industrial centers.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Macorix House of Rum, Runners Adventures, Paradise Island & The Mangroves (Cayo Arena), and other attractions. Visit Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes and Iglesia Sagrado Corazon de Jesus for their historical value. Museum-lovers will get to explore Dominican Amber Museum and Casa Museo Hermanas Mirabal. Step out of Santiago de los Caballeros with an excursion to Scuba & Snorkeling in Sosua--about 1h 35 min away. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Centro Leon, make a trip to La Aurora Cigar Factory, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Catedral de Santiago Apostol.
