    This book does NOT tell you that travel in the Dominican if you are an American is dangerous and difficult. Most Americans will just be going to the Dominican for a resort and guided excursions. It would not be appropriate for them to be wandering on their own through the Dominican Republic. I am glad I figured out it was best to stay on the resort after I got into Punta Cana and La Romana before this book got me into trouble!

    I have been visiting the DR since 1978 and have taken guaguas all over the country and back in the early 80's pickup trucks. I have never had any experiences that were dangerous other than a ride in a pickup from Sosua to Las Terrenas, in which the driver stopped every five minutes to put in brake fluid. I think the master cylinder was leaking. I bailed before he started up the hill around Sanchez. Of course, I know Spanish and something about the culture.

    Where and what is Plaza Espaņa? People watching is a great activity. I need other venues besides El Conde . . . Hmm, perhaps this at the park at the terminal point of El Conde?

    If it is, I'm very familiar with that, except for its name. Can you recommend a couple of other places for people watching, places where I might have a coffee and cigar??

    Always crowded. Many choices; plato del dia with many selections; sandwich deli; wide selection of postres, coffee; menu for entrees. Also, this part of Independencia is nice for a walk as it is lined with shade trees. If you want to go to El Conde from here, just grab a guagua for RD 25. This part of Independencia is one-way. Also, if you need a good pharmacy, you will find Carrol pharmacies here as there are many medical clinics.

    How conducive is the Botanical Garden to people watching? Are there vendors, places to sit, cafes?
