Parque Mirador del Sur is a 4 mile long shaded space that is ideal for leisure and recreation within the city. There are many cliffs and caves in the area that were used as settlements for the indigenous people of the island. Designated paths for walking, jogging, skating and bike riding plus a skateboard ramp and an exercise area make it the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. There is even a man-made lake with rowboats in this green area. The interesting murals throughout the park and a beautiful fountain make it the perfect place to be.

Location:

The park extends from Avenida Abraham Lincoln to Ave. Luperon in Santo Domingo South, Districto Nacional.

Plaza and Playa Guibia

Plaza and Playa Guibia

Plaza and Playa Güibia is the only beach available for swimming (if you dare) in the city of Santo Domingo. Guibia is a nice place to bring the family for a little fun, exercise or just for some relaxation.

Guibia used to be the place to be during the Trujillo era. There was a casino located next to the beach and it brought in all the rich and famous for some beach time and some fun. Later, for many years, this small beach and plaza were abandoned and forgotten. It was only used by surfers, daring local children looking to cool off and a dog or two.

President Leonel Fernández inaugurated the “New Guibia”, an area measuring 13,479 square meters, on November 20, 2011. The plaza includes sand volleyball courts, a free gym area, bike path, kiosks that sell foods and beverages, kids play area, Wi-Fi internet connection and stage for concerts and other activities. There is even a gazebo extending out on the Caribbean with a boardwalk leading to it. There is lots of security around to keep it safe for all who visit. They are now working on cleaning up the water so it is safe to swim here again.
