    Default Emergency advice needed!

    Hey everyone, I need this info within next 3 days, I've got 2 questions for you experts.

    1. Can any of you recommend a good dentist? I'm hoping for someone with good clean office, etc. I have a cavity! Eeek!

    2. What one thing would you NOT miss as a tourist? Restaurants? Museums?

    Now I know these sites have controversies surrounding doctors/dentists and people advertising for their clinics. I don't want to upset any hornet's nests but I DO need some advice, I trust that someone here can give me some help.

    Thanks everyone have a great weekend, I'll be in Santo Domingo

    El Conde which is the main street in Zona Colonial. Have a Presidente beer at Pacos Restaurant and enjoy the pedestrian traffic. Across the street from Pacos is a park where they have a small time changing of the guard. It is no big deal but it is nice to watch.

    Be sure to go inside the Cathedral of Santo Domingo and take a walk around the area.

    Plaza de Cultura has a few museums, but last time I was there they were closed for renovations.

    If you want to shop Dominican style take a taxi ($100 pesos) to Plaza Lama on Calle Durate.

    You can also go to Mercado Modelo on Avenida Mella.

    For the best information for things to do in Zona Colonial go here:

    there are more dentists in Santo Domingo than you can shake a stick at. Look for an Estomatólogo/a. These are trained at PUCMM in Santiago and are very, very good.

    Now if you were in Santiago, I could take you by the hand and lead you to a fine dentist....

    Default Sounds good!

    I will be there within next 1 1/2 years, if you mean Santiago, Chile. Latin America is so damn exciting, I plan to go everywhere. Next up, after my trip to Santo Domingo, will be Panama. But Chile is pretty high on my list of places I must go.

    Thanks for the detailed info bigbird, I'll check out the changing of the guard and having a beer and a quick snack before sounds even better! Presidente beer is Dominican? Trust me, I'll grab a few...

    Thanks for the link too. I usually (over)research the places I've visited far more so I appreciate everyone's help.

    Anyone with more info on dentists? Dentistas? Err....
