We had a great time great souvenirs and the cigar Factory next to it was very informative
Be very careful of this place, dangerous tourist trap. In some instances hotels will tell you it is a tour, but in reality it is s glorified overpriced gift shop. The guards are also holding guns and will hold you if you try to leave via any other fashion than their timely controlled vans. Do yourself a favor and go to the mall nearby for gifts.
Educational and enjoyable shopping experience and a look at local products.
Absolutely the contrary to prior posts, no pressure sales, informative and educated guides. Great insight to the culture and economy of the Dominican Republic.
Just for tourists... Everything overpriced. Just trinkets, cigars that cost more than they should, and liquor that costs more than it should.
