How we made a 6 hour layover in Santo Domingo fun
Ever heard of PAWA Dominicana Airline. You should. Here are 5 reasons why I suggest you start flying with Pawa.
Street art at it’s Caribbean finest. That’s what I call the murals found in Santa Bárbara, a tiny neighborhood at the edge of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo. Not the finest of neighborhoods but a treat for street art fans nonetheless.
Today marks almost a week that I am back home, having visited a country I knew very little about initially, before I stepped foot out of the aircraft that landed at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo on August 14th. The 10 days I spent driving around the Dominican Republic’s busy and mostly chaotic highways, I got to see a lot of ugly but also some gorgeous parts of what I came to learn is a very diverse island.
I wasn’t quite sure where to start and what to write about first. My experiences were so many and I even learned a thing or two about myself on this particular trip. So I’ve decided to start with one of the most magical days in the DR. The day I finally hiked up to a waterfall.
