    Default La Vega or Bonao on Valentines Day

    I would like to spend a couple of days this Sunday/Monday in either La Vega or Bonao. What is their to do on those days (The Monday is Valentines). Any good hotel located close to a riverside? Good local disco? I know we are close to Carnaval, anything special happening this Sunday in La Vega? Thanks

    In Bonao there is NOTHING to do. They have a real nice hotel though Aquarius. So if you dont have any lady friends nor any friends it is a hole in the wall place to be, especially on the weekend. It makes Mayberry look like Chicago.

    La Vega will have Carnaval on Sunday.

    Thanks Jorge and racerX. Ok, so it looks like La Vega is the place to be. I have read in a previous thread favourably about Hotel Rey in LaVega. Any other good hotels to stay at? Any river close by? Any Restaurants that come recommended? Any places in town I should visit? By the way, I will not be solo I will have company with me. Thanks

    Have you considered Jarabacoa?

    Across from Hotel Rey is an outdoor steakhouse/Parillada...the food's decent and reasonable and they have have live music. I think the Rey is pretty much the only decent hotel in town. Macao Grill near the park in the center of town has pretty good pizza. There's a place on the main road off the highway that's famous for it's ribs (costillas) but I can't remember the name....if you ask any Vegano they'll tell you though...

    Well it was a possibility but I looked at a map and it seemed a little more off the main highway. Figured I would take baby steps and I could explore further on a second trip. Am I right about it being a little less accessible?

    You are correct, it is further off the main highway but a straight easy drive once you exit the highway.

    Wow, the photos on Hotel Gran Jimenoa's website looks like a place to spend my weekend. Will have to do a little more research on the old threads about Jarabacoa. Thanks guys, keep the help coming.

    Bonao will also have carnival processions on the Sunday. It's not on the scale of La Vega but that isn't such a bad thing.
