  • You will find many sights in Amber and Larimar, typical of the region. Haggle is mandatory. It's not that as the colonial zone and tourist prices are a little better

  • To complement a visit to the capital, it is impnrescindible to visit this market to acquire Dominican handicraft products, I personally recommend a store called Freddy

  • Pintoresque local market
  • Something that must be seen. But about the prices.... If you have white shin... Well all will be double price. Anyway this place and the area around are typical. Don't go during the night .too dangerous. To be seen only with the daylight.
  • My favorite market!
  • A craft market of truth

  • It is a place where you can find almost everything. Excellent for if you want to take a souvenir from the Dominican to your acquaintances abroad. Also to find flowers in good price or ingredients of a recipe
