We all love the beach, but there is so much more to discover in the Caribbean — and there’s nowhere better to experience the authentic Caribbean than some of its remarkable cities.

The Caribbean’s urban centers offer a mix of nightlife, culture, art and culinary adventure that will always reward the adventurous traveler. These are our favorites for 2017.

Santo Domingo

The Caribbean’s largest metro area is a pulsing, vibrant city with a modern, energetic vibe. But it’s also home to the Colonial Zone, the oldest city in the New World and a wonderful destination in its own right. The best trips to Santo Domingo combine both of these worlds.

What You Must Do:

Stay at the JW Marriott Santo Domingo

Eat at Pat’e Palo European Brasserie

Drink at the lobby bar at the Hostal Nicolas Ovando

Experience a walk around the Colonial Zone and its myriad sidewalk cafes and art galleries.
