On Dominican Republic walking holidays, start by taking a tour of the capital city, Santo Domingo, with one of our local guide leaders. Explore the Zona Colonial to see the country’s magnificent churches and European fortresses, in the place where Christopher Columbus once visited, while taking in the beautiful 15th and 16th-century architecture.
On your tour of the capital, you will see the oldest cathedral in the Western Hemisphere, Basilica Cathedral of Santa María la Menor, which was built in 1514 and completed in 1541 by Diego Columbus, the son of the great explorer. Take in the intricate stonework and stately presence as your guide leader shows you around this magnificent site.
After you’ve taken in the breathtaking sights of the city, take a stroll through Dr. Rafael Ma. Moscoso National Botanical Garden. Ferns, palm trees and even a Japanese garden can be found in this well-maintained spot, which you can enjoy during an afternoon stroll.
