    Talking Moving to San Pedro De Macoris in August...

    I'm moving to SPDM in August with my husband, and would like some advice on the area. My husband will be attending UCE, we are both Colombians and in our early to mid-twenties. Just want to know where would be a good place to live in and information on SPDM in general.

    Thank you

    I am sure MATILDA will be able to help ... maybe you can PM (Private Message) her your questions. She lives in Juan Dolio, about 10 kms from San Pedro.

    What do you want to know???!!!

    1. You could live in San Pedro - or Juan Dolio. San pedro is cheaper and closer to hospitals, supermarkets, shops etc. Best area is behind Jumbo supermarket - the electric is more reliable there.

    2. Juan Dolio is as Rubio said around 10 kms away and has more upmarket accommodation, 24 hour electric, the beach - but you would need to go into San pedro for shopping. Easy for your husband to commute - just a bus ride away, and possibly a bit more pleasant for you.

    3. Depends if you want to work and if you have children too.

    Think of some specific questions and let me know!

    Thank you Guys ^_^

    Matilda we do not have kids and I do not plan to work initially but you never know.

    1. Do you know about apartments for rent around JUMBO? we are planning on moving the 1st week of august

    2. How's the area around UCE?
    I've tried to find pictures online but haven't had luck

    3. Being native Spanish speakers, i don't believe we will have any problems


    Can't think of anything else right now.

    if you guys have any more tips or suggestions I'd love to hear them

    No sorry I don't. You really need to be here to find an apt. Suggest you book into a hotel in Juan Dolio for first few days and then hunt for apt. Let me know if you want hotel info

    2. How's the area around UCE?

    UCE is very close to Jumbo. Again quite a good area behind UCE.

    3. Being native Spanish speakers, i don't believe we will have any problems

    Well it will certainly help speaking spanish!!!

    Check out Google maps which will give you a bit re the lie of the land.

    SPM is one of the ugliest cities in the DR with a rich history of "what used to be" ....

    If you can afford UCE, you can afford UNPHU or UNIBE or INTEC in Santo Domingo...maybe even PUCMM in Santiago...so why on earth would you go to UCE??

    Sorry for you...

    I would agree with Matilda about the area around Jumbo. Also look around the west end of the malecon close to the Howard Johnson Hotel Macorix. There are several apt/condo buildings with many students of UCE. With all due respect to Hillbillie, SPM is a fine town, and UCE is a good school.

    San Pedro de Macoris is a very dirty city.
    I only go there to go to the supermarket and than quickly back to Juan Dolio.
