Things to do

A family visit to Santo Domingo is an enriching journey through a vivacious cultural tapestry filled with fun. Spark curiosity, ignite imagination and create lasting memories in this diverse, captivating city. Here are our picks to start your adventure.

At the heart of Santo Domingo lies the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Colonial Zone. Brimming with history, this district is home to numerous landmarks including the oldest Catholic building in continuous use in the Americas and the first cathedral, castle, and monastery. Let your imaginations run wild while roaming these ancient streets, breathing in the stories of times gone by.

The Trampoline Children's Museum, with exhibits like earthquake machines and volcano simulations, offers a hands-on approach to learning that children adore. Science and ecology come alive here, sparking interest and fostering love for learning in young minds. When ready for some open-air downtime, head to Columbus Park. This verdant landscape, filled with colourful flowers and interactive water fountains, provides a perfect respite for the whole family. Engage in fun activities or just lay back and soak in the vibrant atmosphere!

The vast Parque Zoológico Nacional, teeming with countless species of plants and a diverse range of animals, invites families to explore the wild side of Santo Domingo. Its sprawling spaciousness coupled with the educational opportunities it provides make it a must-visit spot for your family. Finally, be sure to explore the city's museums that reflect Santo Domingo's diverse cultural milieu: from the Columbus Lighthouse and the Museum of the Royal Houses to the Museum of the Dominican Man and the Memorial Museum of Dominican Resistance.

When to visit

Santo Domingo, luxuriant in its tropical climate, welcomes families all year round. Regardless of the season, expect warm, welcoming weather; perfect for exploration and outdoor adventures with the ones you hold dear.

For those inclined towards sun-kissed holidays, the dry season—spanning from December to April—is the prime time. It’s the busiest season, but with reason: sunny days and comfortable temperatures. Alternatively, the allure of off-peak deals and quieter attractions may beckon from June to November. And don't fret about the occasional tropical rain shower—it only adds to the charm. For optimal weather conditions with fewer crowds, consider visiting during the 'shoulder season', during April, May, or November. Just remember, with so much on offer indoors and out, there's never a bad time to visit Santo Domingo, the jewel of the Caribbean.
