Plaza Espana, Ciudad Colonial, Santo Domingo 10210, Dominican Republic
Everyone we asked recommended Pat'e Palo as the best restaurant in Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial. Styling itself as a European brasserie, the enticing menu of executive chef Saverio Stassi manages to seem both exotic and familiar at the same time,...

Playa Las Galeras, Las Galeras Las Galeras Samana, Las Galeras 32000, Dominican Republic
Kiosco Las Galeras is a seafood shack at the end of the only road into town, where it terminates at the main, white sand beach of Las Galeras. The seafood is all fresh caught and, in some cases, still kicking. Everything is served with platanos...

Av. 30 de Marzo 140, Santo Domingo 10201, Dominican Republic
After a night of partying Dominicans in Santo Domingo head to popular old school spot Payan. It became my favorite place to eat not only because of their luscious pork leg sandwiches, but also all of the freshly made juices they offer. It was...

Calle Emiliano Tejera 106, Santo Domingo 10212, Dominican Republic
La Casa De Los Dulces translates to The House of Sweets in English. You can see why this is every kids favorite spot in the colonial section of Santo Domingo. I used to visit all the time. It brought back so many memories to return and the owner...

To see some of the most colorful, old, colonial architecture in the Caribbean, it is not necessary to get a difficult-to-procure ticket to Havana. Of course, Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic is not the only Caribbean city with narrow...

Luckily, there still are places in the world enough untouched to spend a week like Robinson Crusoe--unplugged, unstructured, by the sea. On the Samana Peninsula of the Dominican Republic, I found a small guest house that had space in the back...

Samana Bay, Dominican Republic
Officially, the town is known as Santa Barbara de Samana, or sometimes Samana City, or even just Samana. It's also the name for the pretty bay, the peninsula and the province... so if you decide to go to Samana, you'll pretty much be there no...

The journey to Cascada El Limon takes about 30 minutes on horseback. The trail is rocky and muddy and steep in some spots, but the horses are surefooted, and you'll have a guide walking nearby just in case your horse gets a little excited. Once...

We decided to do a tour of the island of the Dominican Republic. On our journey we stopped by Samana where a local had told us about a lake. It was called "The Devils Lake". Why? We're not really sure and neither was anyone else. For that matter,...
