Everyone goes for the beaches but why not explore the city and see what Santo Domingo is really like? Why not travel around the city and see where the locals go and what they do? Santo Domingo has great beaches and is a great city full of friendly and dedicated people. My family and I took a tour of the city neighborhoods and met local people. They were very friendly and welcoming. I got to learn about the Dominican culture and their way of life. For a brief moment in time, I was able to immerse myself in their way of life.
