    Plaza Bavaro: The Main Plaza

    by UneBanane Written Nov 27, 2005

    This is the main shopping plaza in the area. You can find the Western Union there where they offer the best exchange rate. It was a five minute bike from my resort.

    What to buy: Pick up cigars, Mamajuana or Brugal rum (local liquors) and paintings. Larimar & Amber are the stones native to the Dominican.

    Beach Flea Market: Barganing

    by Wellandguy Written Dec 20, 2005

    What to pay: Nothing has a price tag, when you ask the price, you will be quoted about 2X what they expect you to pay. Make a low offer and when it is rejected, start to walk away. Usually they stop you with their best price.

    There's a mall across the street from the resort. There's also a strip of shops down the beach...great stuff, don't forget to BARGIN!

    What to buy: Laramar, torquoise....

    What to pay: Not TOO much. But keep in mind it is a relatively poor country, give them a few extra bucks, it won't kill you =P
