Santo Domingo Travel Guide

Santo Domingo

Between Heredia and San José, the pretty town of Santo Domingo de Heredia, established in the early 19th century, has wide streets and fine examples of traditional, tile-roof houses, and a monumental church, the Basílica de Santo Domingo, that stands out as a brilliant white landmark against the surrounding sea of green coffee farms. There's a level of tranquility here that belies its proximity to the capital, a mere 30-minute drive away if the traffic gods smile upon you.
