Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, is the oldest Hispanic city in the Caribbean, dating back to Christopher Columbus, full of historical and cultural interest. This is a wonderful location in which to study Spanish abroad. While you study Spanish on a program at our Spanish language school, you can visit the many museums, theatres, and galleries in Santo Domingo, as well as experience the night life for which Santo Domingo is so famous. Also, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – Boca Chica – is just 30 minutes’ drive way. The Dominican Republic is a beautiful, tropical island with beaches, reefs, mountains and rain forests. Santo Domingo is the ideal location from which to explore the island.
