SHOPPING IN
Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is the shopping giant of the Caribbean. Browse designer stores in Santo Domingo’s shopping malls, notably the Blue Mall and Ágora, or shop at a handful of Dominican and international boutiques in Punta Cana, and La Romana. Local arts and crafts are ubiquitous, but you will find the best selections near city centers such as in the Colonial City’s galleries, near Parque Central in Puerto Plata, among others. Resorts and marinas offer even more options for those with limited time. Along the way, meander in colorful produce markets, present in every town and brimming with abundant fruits and vegetables. Pick up amber or larimar jewelry, cigars, chocolate, coffee, or a flask of mamajuana.

Stores are generally open Monday through Saturday, with shopping malls also opening on Sunday with limited hours.
