  • The Aquarium is beautiful and has a large variety of marine species. There is an outdoor area overlooking the sea that yields gorgeous pictures. Nice ride, especially for those with children.

  • This place has an ample parking and is located a few minutes away from the center of the city. It is very affordable and if you go with Dominican friends who invite you thus do not spend you dollars that they charge you if you are a foreigner. Inside there are different spices marina but is small and its maintenance is poor. Really am sorry an important place for children East so bad. It has a café with the basics and even games for kids area which is the best place even though it suffers from the same evil upon the lack of maintenance. The view is spectacular. You can see the coast of the city from there, and a very nice breeze feels. Families spend at a time in the cespede while children play quietly. Finally a good place if you're not demanding and the truth that deserves a good investment from the Government to return it to its former glory.
