One particular bonus you get when visiting the Dominican Republic between January and mid March is that it happens to be the 'Whale watching' season.

Information about the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Interesting places to see that are historical. Many buildings that are 400 to 500 years old.
Santo Domingo, the old Spanish colonial capital, is all set to bewilder its visitors whenever they visit the city. This very first European City of the New World is even today found to be intact sitting pretty well along Rio Ozama River's western bank.
Santiago has a bustling nightlife. Most of the fun after hours usually happens at the venue located outside the main district. At night the place abounds with people and noise coming from bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Despite those areas, there are several areas that are not well known to many tourist but it still thrives.
