Since already on the island, I thought I should have a look at Dominican republic with is the other half of Haiti. I stayed 3 days in Santo Domingo and in a lovely old colonial villa in the district Zona Colonial. This is a beautiful old colonial area of the city, which buildings from the colonial era. Some kept in good condition, others under restoration or in poorer condition. A lot of renovation work was ongoing when I walked around this district of the city. The area is also littered with old churches - well worth visiting.
The Columbus Lighthouse and the Three eye National Park are also sights which are worth a visit. There is an abundance of restaurants to choose from in the city.
