In a nutshell
Great Beach for a family vacation
At the Gran Dominicus you can spend pleasant evenings. After dinner you'll go to the bar where you'll can try to dance the merengue waiting for the show organized by the staff members. Later you'll can go to the open air discoteque on the beach just behind the Pasta e Pizza restaurant. While you are dancing the cooks take pizzas out of the oven...Here you can sit up all night.

This is a big tourist shop where you can find many local crafts, wood carvings, paintings, typical percussion instruments, CD of Dominican music, amber and larimar jewels and also (unfortunately) dried starfhishes and monstrous embalmed spiders, the mygales...I hate the spiders!!
What to buy: Here I bought the larimar and a painting in the typical Haitian style. (please, wait for the pic!)

I do not recommend driving yourself in the DR. It is dangerous and it will be likely you are gonna get into an accident unless you are used to driving in similar situations. 2 lanes can turn into 3, or 4. Passing on corners is not uncommon. The first time I went to the Dominican, I thought I'd never see my homeland again, serious! Our bus transfer driver thank goodness knew what he was doing, even if others did not. We almost smoked this guy on a scooter, and even he pulled over and put his hand over his heart, took some deep breaths, and then continued on in and out of traffic. Be cautious at the very least!
