Yes, of course there are other things to photograph in the Dominican Republic besides baseball! I especially enjoyed the Colonial Zone or Ciudad Colonial in Santo Domingo. The shopping options do lean on the “touristy” side, but you can still have fun looking around. There are numerous cultural places to explore, including the ruins of the Hospital of San Nicolás de Bari. Construction began in 1503, making it the first hospital built in the Americas. Catherine and I spent a few days hanging out on the beach in Boca Chica. The sunsets were wonderful, and we enjoyed some of the tasty local cuisine. Fish that is cooked “Boca Chica Style” is a deep-fried plate of awesomeness. This isn’t a secluded spot with all-inclusive resorts. Boca-Chica is full of noise and activity. If you enjoy people-watching, and trying fresh coconuts that people are selling on the beach, this is the place for you. One of my favorite locations was the ruins of Monasterio de San Francisco. There are some occasional Sunday afternoon cultural events and concerts here, but you will often find that the gate is locked when you show up on a random weekday. However, if you are persistent, and have 5 bucks or so to tip the person watching the gate, there is a good chance you can get inside. This was the first monastery built in the Americas, started in 1508. I visited here on two separate days and came away with some amazing images.
