Dominican Republic: Shopping
A Land of Contrasts
Shopping in the Dominican Republic is a great way to pick up some local bargains. Imported items are unlikely to be any better value than shopping elsewhere, but if you are seeking some local Dominican products then you will be surprised at the value for money on offer. With tourism being such an important part of the Dominican economy, shopping for Dominican made products is highly encouraged. If you are seeking jewelry then the nation is famous for its production of amber items, and is also known for its fine dresses and, more recently, its works of art. You won’t find many bargains on your western prestige brands, but can fill suitcases with fantastic bargains if you know where to look. Shopping in the Dominican Republic will satisfy the shopaholic in all of us.
