When we hearCaribbean»We tend to think of beaches very similar to what paradise should be. However, we should also think about the cities in this tourist area that we have all wanted to travel to once.
To make it clear that the Caribbean is more than just beaches, I have decided to compile those that for me are the 10 most beautiful cities. Take note!
Santo Domingo Dominican Republic)
The capital of the Dominican Republic a place where you would not mind spending your last years of life as a retiree. It has a population of almost a million inhabitants, but you do not have the feeling of being in an overwhelming city as it could happen in other cities with a very similar number of citizens. The beach is a stone's throw away.
In the Habana you live at a different pace. It is a city that I would recommend going to if you are stressed, since very soon you would learn to live more relaxed, giving less importance to problems. Cars and colored houses mix with its people, who are certainly very hospitable and friendly with tourists.

We return to the Dominican Republic, but this time to talk about Bávaro, which is a tourist city at its best. It is in the province of La Altagracia, in the east of the country, and was originally a dormitory town for those who worked in Punta Cana. However, over time it has become a city of about 60,000 inhabitants whose main objective is I claim Bavaro Beach.
