What you'll do
Everyone visits Zona Colonial without tasting the joy and vibrancy of the Dominican culture... the history, the people, the music and the dancing. Now is your chance to taste it all in one experience! Our guests are welcomed with a shot of mamajuana a local Dominican drink in a local colmado which is all part of the Dominican culture, we’ll mingle over a local beer or two and sometimes have the option to learn how to dance a little merengue or bachata. We’ll pass by a beautifully back lit ruins for a little history which is lesser known to tourist – the oldest hospital in the new world! We'll make our way through the backstreets to our final destination-where we'll spend most of our time a local Dominican street party event based in front of another site of old ruins with a spectacular merengue band playing son, salsa and merengue, there's a dance floor and street full of hundreds of locals socialising over a drink, this is where you’ll be able to experience the fun of partying with local Dominicans that will lift your energy and leave you smiling ear to ear! It's my absolute favorite thing to do in Zona Colonial-it simply cannnot be missed!! Note: This event is only on Sundays- please private message me for date availability.
