Try this approach and watch your photographic eye improve. Calle El Conde is packed with colorful, cultural photo ops — this pedestrian street runs through the heart of the Zona and is lined with sidewalk art vendors, cafes, shops, restaurants and iconic old buildings as well as restored ones. A little more tucked away from the center is Calle Arzobispo Portes , shown at left — a lovely, tree-lined residential street with a few corner colmados or mom and pop grocery stores, as well as colorful doors and balconies that will throw you back a century or two.
Calle Padre Billini — between Fortaleza Ozama to Calle Santome — is another lovely, unshaded stretch with bougainvillea flower pots in windows and random street art. There are also historic churches on Calle Padre Billini, with gorgeous courtyards. This means that like most tourist areas around the world, it attracts its fair share of pickpockets and the occasional motorbike-thief who might try to snatch your camera off you if the opportunity strikes.
10 Most Insta-Worthy Sites In The Heart of Zona Colonial, Santo Domingo
Stay in majorly trafficked areas and quickly put away the camera after you shoot. The more you venture out to the edges of the Zona Colonial, which are run down and isolated, the riskier it gets in terms of wandering solo with equipment. For my fellow solo traveling females : street harassment has significantly reduced in the Colonial Zone. You might just fall in love with it as hard as I did. For my expert recommendations on places to stay, museums to visit, local restaurants and bars in the Colonial Zone, purchase a copy of my upcoming, updated Moon Dominican Republic guidebook for Moon Travel Guides.
There are beautiful, original works of Dominican art available, but learn to ask about the artist and even better, visit a real gallery where the prices are still reasonable and the works are genuine. These museums exhibit works by the great Dominican artists and exiled European artists who painted here. These artists formed the vanguard of the Modernist movement in the Dominican Republic and greatly influenced the Dominican art that followed.
