The guide “Santo Domingo is a Great Investment Opportunity” encourages national and international investors to think of Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone as an excellent location to invest in. The zone is packed with historic monuments, trendy restaurants and bars, art galleries and arts & crafts stores, and is a particularly attractive section for investment because, says the guide, of its proximity to Santo Domingo’s international airport, a modern cruise ship port, and the possibility of receiving important incentives through the country’s Tourism Incentive Law.
The guide highlights the colonial zone’s many treasures, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Currently the government is investing millions in the renovation of the important zone, an important regional tourism attraction.
The guide also encourages investment in Santo Domingo’s seaside boulevard, known locally at the “Malecon.” The avenue is an excellent place to invest in bars, restaurants, pubs, souvenir shops, tobacco stores, among other possibilities.
