The exhaustion from my red eye flight to New York from California and 4-hour flight to Santo Domingo seemed to diminish the second I laid eyes on the turquoise water outside the window of my Uber.

Driving from the airport into the capital is a friendly welcome to the Caribbean, as the palm tree-lined road follows the south coast of the island.
