Hotel in Santo Domingo suburbs

by englishman007

I will be in Santo Domingo for 8-9 days in May and will be staying in Juan Dolio for the duration- however, I would like to see a bit more- I have been to Santo Domingo a number of times, but always stayed in the Zona Colonial. This time I want to stay in a decent hotel outside of the centre- either- maybe towards Herrera and west to San Cristobal- but I cannot find anything out there. Looking at maybe 50 bucks a night? any ideas? Even by Miramar or north but still central.. I'm just looking to avoid the tourist centre that I already know well. I need a place more Dominican and in an area where I can sit with the locals in a colmado and share a few beers.....

I got a hotel in Naco, which is quite central. Aparta Hotel Aladino: http://www.hotelaladino.com.do/en/tarifas.html - they charge 55 US for a single room including taxes (26%) and continental breakfast. The hotel is located near John F. Kennedy avenue, which has lots of buses and carros públicos if you want to be Dominican for a day hehe, and close to some malls where you'll interact with Dominicans and less tourists.

If you walk towards Quisqueya stadium (about 10 minutes) or north, towards the university UNPHU (about 20 minutes) you'll find some colmados.

Travel Tips for Santo Domingo

Definetely go to El Conde,...

by rd.

Definetely go to El Conde, thats the place to go for food, and for meeting lots of people, and discovering the wonders of the old Santo Domingo.
Also for good food go to Adrians Tropical Food: I think that is the best place to go and have MOFONGO, mofongo is made of mashed green bananas(platanos)with almost everything you can think of.
And, for a more Domincan type of eating go to El Conuco.That is a typical name which means fields. The thing i miss the most is the people that live there, the happiness they share, and the way they make you feel welcome as if your one of their very own family.

VIEW OF THE CITY 10

by REYNALDOPICHARDO

This is a view of the city of Santo Domingo, this is the capital of the Dom. Rep. it's located on the ESE of the island, heavely populated(More than 2 million), and for the most part it compares to other major cities in the world in the services avaliable to it's residents, transportation and tele-communications are on parity to most developed countries, it has to it's prestige, the first university of the new world, as well as the first cathedral of america which still stands today, this city claims to many firsts, since it was the cradle of the new world when the spanish colonists founded the city there, a part of the city called "Zona Colonial" Colonial Zone, shows much of the culture and architecture of the century, still standing after more than 500 years, just as the day they were erected, the city is very much a relic itself, one can see parts of the city that are home to many buildings and streets of that time, a must see, but forget the tours and do it on your own time, since you'll need to take your time to imagine yourself in that period of time,standing there just as a conquistador of that period would had, the surroundings can take you there, since it's several blocks in size and the surrounds despict the true settings of the original city.

Casabe (cassava bread)

by marielexoteria

Casabe is a thin, flat bread made of yuca, also known as cassava. Casabe is one of the few things that we inherited from the Taíno people and that we still enjoy to this day. We have several sorts of casabe: natural, with garlic flavor and filled with different kinds of fruit/marmalade. You can find them in big packages or buffet size, roughly the size of a coffee cup. They're eaten mostly by themselves, as a between meals snack but a lot of Dominicans like eating casabe with chicharrón de cerdo (deep fried pork meat).

Yuca is a root and comes in 2 sorts: sweet, which we cook (boil, in empanadas, in arepitas, fried) and eat right away and bitter, which must be processed before consumption and which is the one used to prepare casabe.

Do your nails!

by Belsaita

We were wandering around Av. Duarte area. We saw so many hairdressers (even in the middle of the street, see another tip) and so many nail shops. Something really unusual for us. We did not dare to put some false long nails in our hands... But we had our manicure done, and a relaxing hand peeling massage. Funny way to spend some time. Of course, the shop had latino music at high volume as background, and the manicurists were kind of dancing when unoccupied. As well, a good excuse to sit down for a while :-) Not recommended for hygiene-obsessed indeed :-)))

La Obelisca/Obelisco Hembra

by mikey_e

Trujillo, one of the more brutal dictators of the Dominican Republic, appears to have been quite fond of erecting Obelisks. A kilometre east of the Male Obelisk (see my tip on that sight), you'll find La Obelisca or El Obelisco Hembra (the Female Obelisk), which was erected by the dictator in 1941 to honour the DR's repayment of outstanding loans to the US, incurred by previous Dominican administrations. I'm not entirely certain what makes this Obelisk female while the other one is male, but you can probably find a well-informed Dominican who can give you a tip. In any case, this monument is close to the intersection of the Malecón and Piña, south of the Puerta de la Misericordia.
