Hard to describe exactly where it is, it is in the northwestern part of the city, but ask anyone where the mercado is and they will tell you. It is showed on Google maps.

    The nastiest place there ever was!

    It might've been planned and designed for indoor use many years ago but nowadays it isn't anything indoor related. The market and vendors around it had over taken the entire block and then some.

    From fruits to meat, rice beans, live animals to clothing - everything can be had here, if having the patience to navigate this maze.

    Be prepared to be dazzled!

    Welcome to the board sir. SanPedro will get lots of criticism but it’s not so bad. Maybe you’ve discovered them, but Blondy’s (if still open- they close sporadically) or Empanadas Reyes are delicious. I also love Brazas restaurant at the Malecón.

    Semana Santa is especially interesting in San Pedro-take care!

    Is Life about "eating food" only?

    I didn’t mean to dislike. Matilda already suggested the Mercado, and I would assume the OP knows all about the Malecón. Apparently Playa del Muertos is closed, but I wouldn’t suggest that anyway. Are you familiar with SPM?

    I want to work with granmoun (ancianos) of the different bateys here. Where I live in San Pedro is walking distance to Batey Esperanza and gua-gua distance to the Bateys of Monti Christi, Cubana, and Olivares. It also has a cheaper cost of living. I believe this is where God wants me for the near future at least.

    Playa del Muertos is not closed, but there is really nothing to see there.

    My fave restaurant when I was there was Robbie Mar fish place next to the river.

    Great food and people but the smell of the river is awful. The views are nice though, very relaxing place.

    San Pedro was once a mecca - government and business stripped all of the glamour and growth from the province years ago. Only thing left in SPM is the UCE and the Malecon.

    Sad indeed - a place with so much to offer and totally forgotten.
