Traffic Information

The DR-1 is the main highway in Santo Domingo which can also take you to visit the Dominican Republic's second biggest city of Santiago de los Caballeros. Another notable route is the DR-3, which takes you from Santo Domingo to the eastern region's main tourist cities. To avoid difficulties we recommend to map your journey out beforehand to avoid having to travel through rough terrain or any other less ideal driving conditions due to weak infrastructure in parts of the country. A GPS is especially helpful as road signs are not always posted.

Sixt Tips

Whether in Santo Domingo for a weekend or a part of a longer stay in the Dominican Republic you are sure to enjoy its European flair and historic charms. The capital of the country and its largest city, it is home to many important cultural institutions and other attractions. Divided into two by the Ozama River its Western half is considered to be the more developed. The famous Zona Colonial can be found on the western side as well as the main waterfront area. Take a stroll along George Washington Avenue, or El Malecon, the seafront promenade. Driving away from the main tourist areas to the Poligono Central will put you in the heart of some of the best shopping and dining available in Santo Domingo. Check out the upscale areas of Naco and Piantini as well before driving not far to the beautiful and lush Botanical Garden.
