Energetic and bustling with a population of roughly 2.5 million, Santo Domingo is a big city with the warmth of a small town. Despite its size, which can sound daunting, it maintains the typical vibe of a Latin culture.
Head down to Old Santo Domingo, the city's colonial district full of cobblestone streets and traditional architecture that will transport you back to another era. However, you can also take advantage of the city's up-and-coming modern side: fine dining restaurants, frenetic merengue clubs and much more!
Aside from age-old traditions and architecture, Santo Domingo's rich culture also offers newer facets, such as theaters, cinemas, and museums- all of which are dispersed throughout the city streets.
Finally, when you're in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean, how can you forget the beach! Luckily for you towel-toting sun-lovers, Santo Doming is located on the Dominican Republic's southern coast- that means just minutes from the beach.
All of this and much more makes Santo Domingo a prime study abroad destination- come discover it!
Situated in the midst of bustling student activity and cafés, our school is set right across from the island's largest university. Its unbeatable location provides students with the opportunity to get to know native DOminicans and practice your Spanish both inside and outside of the classroom. Plus, you'll be just a 10-minute bus ride to the historic Colonial Quarter!
The academic center's facilities include: 3 outdoor classrooms, 2 indoor classrooms with ceiling fans, access to the university library across the street, and a garden and terraces where you can meet and socialize with other students.
