San Juan Shopping Center is home to designer clothing stores, including American fashion brands, jewelry stores with Dominican amber and larimar, cigar shops, and arts and crafts galleries. Visit Plaza Turquesa for a handful of boutiques selling imported beachwear and accessories, as well as locally made souvenirs. Palma Real Shopping Village houses multiple designer clothing and accessories stores, art galleries, as well as small arts and crafts boutiques, cigar shops, and supermarkets. On the beach, Playa Los Corales has a craft market shopping area, selling all things Dominican, while Mundo Auténtico shopping complex is a great spot to find authentic Dominican hand-rolled cigars, chocolate, and coffee.

Boca de Yuma

Boca de Yuma offers a daytime escape to a scenic Dominican fishing village. Boasting panoramic cliff top views, it has often been compared to an Italian seaside town, where restaurants, bars, and shacks line up above the sea. The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León once had a home in the area.
