It is an underground water table which, eroding the rock over the centuries, has collapsed, leaving the fresh and crystalline water sources uncovered. This unusual site in a capital of 5 million inhabitants, has been declared a national park.
You will then head to the Colonial Zone, without failing to make a photo stop at the '' Faro a Colón, and the Presidential Palace.
Once in the colonial zone, a district listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will visit the our-lady-of-incarnation Cathedral which is the first construction of this type built at the beginning of the 16th century on the American continent.
Lunch will be in a small and typical restaurant of the colonial zone, so you will have the opportunity to eat a meal like a Dominican! It is a simple meal, usually including chicken in sauce accompanied by rice and red beans.
In the afternoon you will see the national pantheon with its guards who do not move a millimeter.
You will also have free time to stroll through the alleys of the old town and possibly take the opportunity to buy some souvenirs.
