The Other Side of the Island August 18, 2015

The colonial city of Santo Domingo is the Dominican Republic’s vibrant capital and one of the Caribbean’s oldest cities. Also a UNESCO world heritage site, it enjoys the perfect mix of old world charm and modern Latin flair.

The energetic nightlife, brilliant shopping and love of baseball keep it is as cosmopolitan as any modern city, but it’s the allure of the medieval fortresses and beautiful 16th century architecture which really makes it spectacular.

“Zona Colonial” is home to the first cathedral built in the New World and is a must see. Explore the historical cobbled streets and absorb the culture, heritage and unique customs of the Dominican Republic, and as the sun sets you can salsa the night away at the popular merengue and bachata clubs.

The Malecón is the capitals famous oceanfront promenade and on Sunday’s it becomes a pedestrian-only thoroughfare, where locals and tourists alike join together to dance, drink rum and relax.

Half Moon

Jamaica

You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and, most recently, Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality.

With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it.

At over 60 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the Oleander section of the resort is now receiving a full makeover.
