A comfortable bus will take you from the hotel and we will embark on our journey (drive time is 2 hours). Our first stop will be the Three Eyes cave. This cave got its name thanks to three crystal clear lakes located at a depth of 15 meters. However, in 1916, the fourth lake was discovered, which is considered to be the most spectacular. And we will definitely visit it! Our next stop will be the colonial city. Here we can plunge into the atmosphere of authenticity and feel the spirit of the Spanish conquerors. You will enjoy an exciting walk along the first street of the New World, a visit to the house of Diego Columbus, a fort of the 16th century and the first temple of the New World, where the ashes of Christopher Columbus were found. At the end, you will have lunch with a gorgeous view of the colonial square. Next, we will go to the eastern part of the city, where we will visit the Columbus Lighthouse.

Santo Domingo City - Full Day Tour
"This was a great experience. You get to see a bit of everything which is great! It takes a bit to get going because of picking up groups from different locations but that didn’t bother me. I was a bit nervous since I was traveling alone and don’t speak Spanish but the driver was great and Leo the tour guide was AMAZING at explaining in English and Spanish! Leo certainly made this trip amazing. We got to see Los 3 Ojos, the Columbus Lighthouse and House, a cathedral, the president’s house, walk the streets in Santo Domingo, souvenir shop, a few others I’m sure I’m forgetting and have lunch (included). We did have to move a bit quickly so that we could see everything but it wasn’t rushed. It’s a very long day because of the ride to and from Santo Domingo so I would suggest packing snacks/drinks (or grab some at the gas station main meeting point) and dressing comfortably. I was picked up at 7:20 and returned to my hotel around 6:20. Awesome awesome experience!!"..."
