Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Sarasota's sister city since 1963, Santo Domingo was Sarasota's first sister city. It was also the first city chartered on the American Continent, occuring in 1498 by Christopher Columbus's brother Diego. This vibrant city of 2.5 million people is located on the island of Hispaniola, between Cuba and Puerto Rico. The economy of this independent democratic nation is based on both agriculture and tourism.
