  • I didn't enjoy this "controlled" shopping experience. The operators of the shops (likely all owned by the same group) wouldn't allow us to leave the gated shop area unless we were willing to arrange our own transport back to the hotel. Overall, the experience lacked any real culture, although the employees and staff were very nice. In this gated compound, you can get a quick tour of cigar making, but you can also purchase jewelry, typical tourist gifts, rum, coffee, and chocolate. You also are able to get free samples of cigars, rum tastings, coffee, chocolate, and mamajuana (the local spiced rum in Dominican Republic).
  • Great little spot. Loved the cigar tour and gift shop. The rum, coffee and chocolate were nice little stores.
  • Cigar making, Rum, coffee and chocolate shop. In a way its a tourist trap. Designed for tourists. It is a safe "shopping" experience in a fenced compound. Not a true Dominican shopping experience in the local Punta Cana economy. So understand what it is. It was fun and free to go to. Cigar making tour and a free cigar to try. Rum tasting, hot chocolate and chocolate tea tasting were free. There is also a coffee shop. You can buy rum ,cigars, coffee, chocolate and other souvenirs.
  • Little pricey but honest. No bartering...just the price . I hate when i am told a " good price " ...No ....i want THE price Quality products ..not something that breaks before you go back home. Cigars could be cheaper but great selection
  • I was disappointed with the selection of items and the prices. Surprisingly i found better prices at the resort for things like bags. They have a lot of stuff but our resort offered a weekly flea market. Perhaps, the cigars and rum might be worth the trip. I didn't visit the rum, cocoa, or cigar stores . As always, it's relative, but the flea market will probably offer better things (wooden objects, jewlery, clothes, etc.) at slightly better prices. The staff at my resort was phenomenal!!! All the best in Punta Cana!
