How far from Apart- Hotel plaza colonial to bus station from Haiti?

Re: Need an answer

by marielexoteria

You mean from the apart-hotel to the bus station where you can get the bus to Haiti?

If so, about 45 minutes by taxi (or less), depends on traffic. With public transportation it might take the same time but you'd have to take 3 public cars/share-a-taxis.

The bus station is called Caribe Tours (www.caribetours.com.do).

Travel Tips for Santo Domingo

I used to live in Santo...

by Patricialuv

I used to live in Santo Domingo for a big part of my childhood. When I was eight years old till I was fourteen, santo domingo was my hometown.

When visiting Santo Domingo, you will see many beaches, disco clubs, restaurants, and many site seeing places right at your fingertips. (For more info please visit my Dominican Republic page).

AND....I am so happy to go once again this summer and visit this beautiful country for a good month....(from mid july to mid august!!) The many friends that I still keep in touch with. My family members who live here. Tons of fun we had!!

Picapollo (deep fried chicken a la Dominican)

by marielexoteria

Picapollo is chicken that's covered with flour and then deep fried until the skin is crunchy. This dish can be served with rice, tostones (fried sliced plantain) or French fries and it's a life savior for a lot of people when hunger attacks and they can't wait long. They can be found in any big city, being Pollos Victorina the most famous ones.

Useless trivia: when I was growing up and Pollos Victorina was new, the tostones were very hard and were eaten only if there was no fries or if you *really* had no choice. So hard we used to joke that they could be used as frisbees hehe.

Packing Up!

by damaris05

Essentials of course. Leave room for souvenirs. Walking alot? Don't suggest sandals or flip-flops. I'd rather take comfortable walking shoes... it rains sporadically throughout the day so keep a small umbrella handy. Save the sandals for the beach! Take some Wet Ones.
OFF bug repellant!
Keep a First Aid kit handy. Definitely stack up on cameras. Swim suit; flip-flops; beach stuff! ***For those Contact wearers:
********DON'T FORGET YOUR CONTACT CASE!!!
**like I did!! I had to be resourceful and use to waterbottles to stick my contacts in.

A nice walk after work, National Botanical Garden

by alfredop

The Jardin Botanico, located in Santo Domingo, is a wonderful place for nature/bird lovers, families, joggers, couples, and just about anyone else to spend a morning or afternoon. The well-maintained park has a main road the loops around the entire garden, allowing you to see all parts easily. The Japanese garden is lovely and meticuously maintained.

Bird lovers will want to visit in the morning, preferably on a weekday, before the crowds arrive. At the park, you'll see the ubiquitous palmchat, the Hispaniolan woodpecker, hummingbirds, flycatchers, and even aquatic birds such as the purple gallinule. Reptile lovers will want to keep a lookout for fauna; a beautifully patterned little boa slithered across the path when I visited.

The park has a rather noisy train that circles the park. Anxious to finish the last circuit of the day, our driver led us through at what seemed like break-neck speed. The train was pretty crowded, with people leaning out, etc.--not what I'd consider safe. If at all possible, I strongly recommend walking rather than viewing the park by train. You'll see a lot more--and burn the calories from all that Brugal and Presidente you've consumed!

LOCAL BRIDGE

by REYNALDOPICHARDO

OK

This is one of the many hundreds of bridges around the country, the Dom. Rep. has lots of rivers and waterways so they are very common place, unlike in the western part of the country near the Haiti border, this is where many bateyes are located, they were built to house seasonal Haitians sugar cane workers, but later many of them settled there, thus having family, there're many Haitians-Dominicans there, the gov has a hard time of educating people not to cut the trees to make charcoal with it, desforestation it's a continuing problem there, also many poor dominicans do this in the mountains and woods, hence the lack of waterways and green in that part of the country.
