Sounds great when the hotel says they offer a free shuttle here and it’s safer. They drop you off and come back in 2 hours. I was done in 30 minutes then stuck there. I’m positive the hotels get a kick back because the shops...More

We took a short shuttle ride from our resort and found plenty of selection with the best prices on things from cigars, coffee, liquor, and jewelry to lotions, trinkets, and clothing. Great place to buy gifts or souvenirs to remember your trip. My favorite finds...More

We really enjoyed this! Free transportation, free to get in. No pressure to tip/ buy. Very reasonably priced souvenirs. So much cheaper than the resort. I purchased a hand painted canvas for $6.00 and a bottle of Coke for only $2.00. They gave you a...More

This is a trap to get your money. It is hardly indicative of the real Domincan Republic. It is a bunch on shops in a "gated" shopping center with over-priced items. 12$ for a bar of chocolate!! Do not waste your precious vacation time on...More

We've just returned from a shopping trip to Mund Autentica Bavaro in Punta Cana. Unfortunately, though we spent an hour walking around the store making our selections, I wasn't able to actually buy the two bottles I'd decided upon. Though it sounds unbelievable, two of...More

We were staying at Secrets Cap Cana and there was a free shuttle to go shopping. The trip was about 2.5 hours which was nice also. There was rum tasting, cigars, chocolate, coffee and souvenirs. The sales people were not overly aggressive and there was...More

We had asked our "travel agency" representative to recommend a portion of the town that we could see the local culture, get some souvenirs, go to stores/restaurants that the locals go to, etc since the resort life is not at all indicative of dominican culture....More

The resort advertised this as a free shopping experience. It was a short bus ride from the resort. Immediately as we pulled up I knew this wasn’t going to be the shopping experience I preferred or wanted. This is a tourist trap, it’s a dump...More

Visited this small shopping arcade today. Great small place that makes you feel welcome and gives you opportunities to taste the Dominican rum, cigars, coffee and chocolate. Has a great gift shop and all this without any hassles forcing you to buy.

If you want a free and safe place to shop this is a good place to visit. You can take a shuttle right from your resort and they take you back when you are done. Only cost was a tip to the driver! Lots of...More
