The Sheraton Santo Domingo is just a short 15 minute walk to the historic Colonial Zone. Spend the day sightseeing while walking along the first street in the Americas, touring the palace of Diego Columbus, Christopher's son, or visiting any number of the other museums, churches, parks and ruins the area has to offer. Need a break? Enjoy a drink or meal at one of the restaurants along the Plaza to recharge before heading home. The Colonial Zone is truly a magical place!
