    Puerto Plata is the first place I would go. Santiago is the second place. Prices my be a bit cheaper in Santiago but expenses getting there and delivery costs my make the savings disapate.

    Both Messon and Jimenez on the opposit side of the street have new baby departments both of them. You also find all "small" stuff on the 2nd floor at Casa Nelson. ( as by the other 2 )

    For living room set:
    Gonzales Muebles
    Casa Nelson
    Centro Hidelisa
    All in Puerto Plata

    Default Been there ......

    Nicky has six weeks to go, panic panic panic - We've found that National Supermarkets' baby department in Santiago is more or less the only place to go to find baby stuff that anyone would consider relatively "safe" to use.

    We went to America and carried everything back and still saved money. Be prepared to be shockingly and obviously ripped off. EG. Stroller sets in the USA come with a car seat and car seat base as standard. As if by magic over here they take the car seat out of the package and sell it seperately (for as much as the whole lot costs in America) and then sell the stroller seperately too racking up a mighty but somewhat unpalatable profit.

    To be honest it made me quite angry to see quality baby care accessories being priced so high as to exclude Dominican families who are just as entitled to bring up their child safely as I am. Who are they letting down here?

    There is a couple of furniture stores in Gaspar Hernandez with reasonable prices. The stores are on the main street and you can't miss them.
