    Default US Consulate Now Open in Bavaro

    I don't know if this has been posted before so I will post it. In Palma Real Mall, Bavaro next to the Mail Box,etc on the second floor is a US Consulate Office. It looks like it is permanent, as it is not small.

    So you can save a trip to SD for a lot of things you may need from the Embassy.

    Hello Chirimoya,

    I have been trying to contact the Trinity Real School with the information in their Website, which is apparently very old. I am especially interested because there is information they offer special education. I have checked most bilingual schools in the Punta Cana/Bavaro area and the only one offering an Academic Accomodation Plan and IEP for students with learning disabilities is the CCHS. This school is expensive, and I would like to hear of more options of schools for a child who speaks little spanish and has a mild learning disability. I hope to be moving there by the end of summer and any information is valued as I have little time for admision and registration.

    That school is not there any more: there is a school where it used to be called Dominico-Cubano, which does not appear to have a website. I'll ask the moderator to edit the list of schools.

    I suggest you contact the two other schools - Punta Cana International and Bávaro Bilingual - directly with a request for information. I will send you a Private Message with one contact.

    Err... does that mean everybody has to go to the airport? No more passing by Pueblo Bavaro?

    Not sure, I'm guessing it goes to Punta Cana Village and the airport first, then doubles back to Verón and on to Friusa. If anyone has first-hand info please post here.

    Great thread, kiddo. Thanks.
    Thanks! All the migration/residency rule changes mean some of the content in the book is out of date, and I need to wait till the situation becomes clearer before re-writing that section. Meanwhile I'm trying to complement the book by posting all new information that comes up online.

    It ends at the large circle before the circle at Punta Cana Village. So if you go right you are at PC Village, left to Bavaro.

    OK, but will there be a shuttle or something or is one forced to take a cab or to walk from there (to Pueblo Bavaro, to Veron etc.) now?

    I think Sky means the highway. Caribmike is asking about the bus route. My sister-in-law who came to visit us yesterday got off at the airport, and at that stage the bus had not gone through Verón. She says there were still some passengers on board who presumably were continuing on to Verón and/or Bávaro.
