Weddings in a Caribbean city
Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic. This beautiful city is located at the mouth of the Ozama River, on the Caribbean Sea.

It is undoubtedly famous for being the oldest city in the New World, as it was the first European settlement in the Americas. Today it is one of the country’s major cultural, financial, political, commercial, and industrial centres.


Santo Domingo enjoys a tropical monsoon climate, but thanks to the trade winds, the city doesn’t usually endure the stifling heat and humidity that are characteristic of this type of climate. December and January are the coldest months, while July, August and September are undoubtedly the hottest.


Both the couple and their guests can extend their stay and take advantage of the additional days to enjoy the hotel’s fantastic amenities, as well as visiting the location’s main areas of interest, such as its monuments and parks.
