    Recommended 4-5 star hotels in santiago

    I’m certainly not as experienced or as knowledgeable as the others who have posted but for what it’s worth: I stayed at the Hodelpa Centro Plaza (3 stars ?) a couple years ago and I liked it. Our room had a view of the monument and the breakfast was pretty good. I liked the central location...

    Cigars in the DR

    Thanks for the tip. I have driven through Tamboril before and I did notice a number of small cigar producers in the area but I will have to spend a bit more time there for sure. I did take the La Aurora tour a couple of years ago and it was a very good experience. I may do it again if they are...

    Hi all, I’m looking for some good gastronomy in POP city. Some place that a couple can enjoy a high quality meal that has some good ambiance. Not too fussy on the type of cuisine as long as it’s good and somewhat elegant.

    Cigars in the DR

    Ok, I guess I will start this off and see if it goes anywhere. When talking about cigars I am only referring to hand made cigars using only natural tobacco. I am not interested in flavoured cigars or mass produced machine made cigars. So that being said here are some questions or topics of...

    Cabarete by-pass.

    I have heard lately that there is a plan(or idea, I'm not sure which) to build a by-pass road around Cabarete and leaving the existing road through town for foot traffic only. Personally I quite like the idea, but I was wondering about the lagoon and the environmental impact of road construction...
