Surrounded by mountains in the lush Cibao Valley, Santiago is the second-largest city in the Dominican Republic, yet it retains a small-town feel. This commercial and cultural hub, about an hour from the coast, has robust restaurant, nightlife, and shopping scenes. You can also visit monuments, historical sites such as the rock paintings left by the indigenous Taíno peoples, or the capital of Santo Domingo.
