Dominican Republic is surrounded by beautiful beaches and scenery to keep the tourist coming back over and over again.  We wanted to get a more authentic feel for the country, so we visited the capital Santo Domingo. The city is very fast paced and filled with plenty activities to keep you occupied. 

We stayed at the Embassy Suites and the view (pictured above) was breathtaking. We never needed to leave our hotel which consisted of shopping mall, skating ring, full fitness gym (planet fitness), and movie theater etc.

Definitely recommend and will be going to back to explore more places on the island. It's the second largest and most diverse Caribbean country, Dominican Republic is a destination like no other, featuring astounding nature, intriguing history and rich culture.

Dance to the pulse pounding thrill of the merengue, renew in luxurious and diverse accommodations certified by NEPCon, explore ancient relics of centuries past, delight in delicious Dominican gastronomy or enjoy ecotourism adventures in their magnificent national parks, mountain ranges, rivers, and beaches. Dominican Republic has it all!
