Seeing the “Real” Dominican Republic

We had a great day exploring Santo Domingo and the surrounding area.  Our guide told us that 90% of visitors to the Dominican Republic do not bother to visit Santo Domingo.  We are not sure if this is the true number, but even if the number is 50% there are still too many people missing this historic capital.  We suspect that many visitors to the DR prefer to stay at their all inclusive resorts rather than “waste their time” exploring this fascinating city.  Seems such a shame to us.  Below are a few photos from our adventure.
