Downtown Puerto Plata
The birthplace of many talented Dominican creatives, from merengue musicians to painters, Puerto Plata’s shopping opportunities are as plentiful as its wealthy offerings in nature and culture. You’ll find jewelry stores carrying original amber stones mined within the province, organic coffee and cacao sourced from its plantations, musical instruments made in Puerto Plata’s merengue-centric villages, and numerous handmade arts and crafts. Shopping streets are located adjacent to Parque Independencia, as well as the nearby covered arts and crafts market downtown. For a relaxing indoor experience, visit the stores inside Playa Dorada shopping complex, stocking everything from beachwear to bottles of mamajuana.
