    CrazyMoon: Let the Good time begin!

    by JennysTravels Written Aug 31, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nightclub at this resort was pretty cool. The music was hip-hop, trance, house, rasta. I danced all night long. The bartender was hilarous and made the night fun with rounds upon rounds of tequila. Oh the headache in the morning, thank goodness for the beach.

    by the beach: nite

    by quartinb Updated Oct 1, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    at a all inclusive resort nite offers are very few and narrow. it resumes to a discoteque, and a couple of half 'n hour shows. of course, if yu travel with kids, the disco is not suitable. so, we' ve spent nites, after the shows and animation they provide, just by the pool side by side with the beach, watchin' the stars and talkin' with other travel mates.

    Dress Code: no jacquet requiredLOL

    Any village: Visit a village

    I went to a village outside of Puerto Plata almost every night I was in the Dominican Republic and I had a great time dancing and people watching. I made friends with a member of the community and he made sure I was safe.

    Partying with the locals

    by fairy_dust Written Aug 24, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The locals love to dance! If you're living among the locals or in a small town or village, you won't need to go to a disco to party. Lots of times, the locals will go to some random spot in town where there is a cd player, and dance there. One time, we all went to a local bus stop/gas station, and did our dancing there. Some of the locals joined us, and we all had lots of fun.

    Dress Code: Anything goes. It's very casual, but just for fun, we wore our nice clothes.

    Landy's Disco: A disco in Consuelo

    by fairy_dust Written Feb 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you go to Consuelo, there is a disco in town, where the crowd is mostly young people. They play mostly latin music (salsa, merengue, bachata).

    Interesting tidbit: I had my first kiss in that disco! ;) With a hot local guy!

    Dress Code: Trendy clothes, but if you're a girl, don't wear anything too revealing. The guys might think you're slutty or a prostitute if you do, and since the culture is very macho, they might use that as an excuse to harrass or even rape you. A nice tank top with dress pants or a skirt is ok. A sundress is good too. Just don't show too much cleavage, belly, or leg.

    by DianaenVera Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We once went to a touristic disco. It was great, but we didn't like the people there. They were only looking for tourists. After this disco, we only went to disco's with some of our Dominican friends. They knew were to go. We went to Carwash, Orion and Plaza Mambo's. Sosua has some very nice merengue bars, but there are not very much disco's. Puerto Plata has got some really great disco's. If you are in Sosua, you can take a taxi to Puerto Plata. We went to one disco at Sosua, called Toucan. It is a bit touristic, but it's really nog bad.
    We really like to dance the Merengue, so we were very happy to be at the Dominican Republic. The only thing you hear is Merengue, Bachata and Salsa. It's perfect! Everybody that goes to the Dominican Republic has to learn the Merengue. It is not very difficult.

    Dress Code: You can put on anything. The dresscode is not very difficult. Just put on something nice, and do not forget your dancing-shoes!

    The Barcelo Bavaro Beach...

    by datdanigirl Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort has two nightclubs, a discoteca that plays popular music (mostly American) and a Spanish club that plays Latin music for Merengue, Salsa etc.

    Both were definitely hot spots for the entire week I was there (yes I visited it NEARLY every night, and the night I missed (Friday) was the night they had a live band and was REALLY happening, and of course I missed it due to being there for the 5 nights previous (okay due to hangover and exhaustion.. Thursday night was a rough one!)
    The Spanish club at the Plaza Dominicana is called 'Las Canas' [less CON yahs] and many of the resort workers go there. They are very entertaining and more than happy to teach you how to dance their local merengue..

    Dress Code: Gentlemen must wear long pants to the discoteca. Most men were wearing pants at Las Canas as well, but it didn't appear to be a requirement as it's somewhat open-air and there isn't a doorman.

    Yes in puerto plata is lots to do!
    There are 3 major discos.
    1. High Caribbean
    2. T...something (tuka i think - Forgot the name)
    3. Copa Cabana

    Copa Cabana was very close to my hotel but I din't like it as much. It was o.k.
    I liked the High Caribbean best.
    There are discos at some big hotels at well.
    But you usually need to be a guest of this hotel.
    (you get a wrist ribbon - so they can identify you)
    But if you are smart and quick you'll get in there too!
    lots of bars!!!
    There is one on every corner!
    tip: Check out the jail club ;))

    Cabing it.

    U can catch a cab from your resort to go to other resorts that have night life until all hours. Its safe to get in a cab. Just let them know your wanting a bar that goes all night. Cab fair isnt all that much. Drinks are a little pricey. Very young crouds.

    There are a lot of places to have a good party, the local places where only locals come you can see one of the best merengue dancing going on in the world.
    The bars and pubs, but be aware when there, prostitutes will flok there trying to get some money of the rich foreigners.
    The night clubs where you have to pay entrance, they are pretty empty during the week (most tourist will go to the bars and pubs) but in the weekends the locals will flok over here and dance away the night
    The one to go to in Sosua when I was there is MOby Dick's

    by AniaKuzma Written Aug 26, 2002

    In the Dominican - there's always something to do at night. If you go to a resort you'll enjoy evening shows from around 9:00 p.m. till 11:00 p.m. Then... the real party begins. You can party at your resort disco or decide to be adventurous and check out one of the many local discos. We were feeling adventurous most of the time - and we had a blast. But we always went in groups to be safe. Ladies! Watch out! You may walk into a bar single but you might leave engaged to be married. To more than one man. At least they will convince you that you are.
    Dancing is awesome in Dominican - I love their music. And they know how to dance!

    Dress Code: Anything goes - but local girls really go all out (gold, silver, wery tight and revealing), so if you're insecure keep that in mind. Otherwise wear whatever you wish, we did:)

    If you are in Punta Cana the disco Pacha is ok, you will have fun with disco music and live concerts.
    You can find Pasha disco inside the RIU resort and you can go even if you do not stay there.

    Dress Code: nothing special is required
