Santiago

Christopher Columbus named Santiago de los Treinta Caballeros after the 30 Spanish aristocrats who founded the city in 1495 and formed the original community. Santiago was traditionally the country’s main agricultural hub – and even today, Santiago is still the first place cigar aficionados should visit. The tradition of fine cigars remains strong, with most of the larger cigar plantations and factories located in the area. The Dominican Republic’s second largest city, Santiago has evolved into a modern, cosmopolitan center for culture, industry and services.

Learn all about Caribbean and Dominican culture and art at Centro León, one of the region’s most active museums and cultural centers.

Santiago’s Hospital Metropolitano has a reputation for high quality health care at relatively low prices.

A university city that boasts a vibrant nightlife, Santiago has more than 100 discos, bars and lounges – most located in its downtown area. Dance the night away. Santiago is also home to the Aguilas Cibaeñas baseball team.

The Cibao International Airport is located 15 minutes from the center of Santiago.
