The capital of the Dominican Republic as well as its largest city. Zona Colonial is a UNESCO heritage site, and a great place to take a stroll during the day. The city is the financial, political, and industrial hub of the country. Santo Domingo women are among the best in the country, so if your priority is dating, I recommend starting here!
SEX AND DATING IN SANTO DOMINGO
You definitely have some strong value here as a foreigner. Maybe it’s because they’re bored, but the attention you’ll draw as a non-local here will shock you. This isn’t to say girls will be hurling themselves at you around every corner in Santo Domingo, but if you put forth minimal effort, you will be rewarded. Hooking up with girls in Santo Domingo is easy. It is not difficult to tell if they’re interested either because bashfulness is not usually the modus operandi here. It’s very much a culture of cat-calling and public displays of affection! Hitting on women is very-much expected of you. Local guys will think you’re strange if you don’t do it, so put your shyness aside to fit in! Another plus is that you’ll have to deal with less prostitutes than you would in Puerto Plata.

There are some stunners here in Santo Domingo. Depending on your type, you will either be in heaven or just content. If you like black girls with large breasts and big booties, you will be in heaven. If you like slim black girls, you will be in heaven. Hell, if you like any black girls this isn’t a bad place to be as far as Latin America goes. That said, the Dominican Republic (like Cuba) is a melting pot, so there are people of all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds here. If meeting women is part of your Latin America travel itinerary, Santo Domingo is a pretty good place to start

RENT AN APARTMENT IN SANTO DOMINGO
$500.00 in Santo Domingo can be done, and has been done. You may want to pay a bit more rent for a better apartment amenities/location, though. Apartment rentals — and cost of living in general — is higher than you might expect.
NIGHTLIFE IN SANTO DOMINGO
A plethora of options with some of the best dancing you’ll see anywhere. Zona Colonial and Venezuela Avenue is where it’s at. Zona Colonial has better looking girls and fancier clubs, but it is easier to hook up with girls on Venezuela. The choice is yours. Nightlife in Santo Domingo is pretty bumpin’ but kind of intimidating at first…feels like you might be robbed. But it is safer than it feels.
I recommend: Platinum Disco Club. In the university zone, which is not far from the colonial zone. A bit higher brow, so if you like something a bit grittier so to speak, head to Venezuela Ave.
IS SANTO DOMINGO SAFE?
Santo Domingo can be a bit dangerous. Don’t look lost or rich at night and have all your wits about you when you’re out and about.

Santo Domingo is a solid city. Definitely has enough to warrant a week’s stay or longer. Girls in Santo Domingo are super cool as well. However, if you’re not used to spending time in 3rd-ish world countries, you may find the city a bit…grotty. But it would be a damn shame if you let that deter you from going.
