Santiago Cibao airport (STI)
Santiago de los Caballeros, also called Santiago, city, northern Dominican Republic. Located on the Yaque del Norte River, in the heart of the fertile Cibao Valley, it is known as the capital of the Cibao region.
For a long time, the city's economy depended mainly on the production of cigarettes, rum, furniture, medicines, soap, leather articles and processed food, including cocoa, ground rice and dairy products. However, services, including tourism, have become increasingly important. Santiago is on the main road that connects Santo Domingo to Monte Cristi in the far northwest.
