I had a little spell living in Bella Vista. What I hadn't realised is that when everyone turns on their A/C units they all pump hot air outside, and in a street with so many condo blocks so close to each other you can hardly breathe. No chance of sitting out on the balcony. I have always found it weird how Dominicans prefer living like battery hens in Bella Vista to living beside the sea. The Malecon is almost abandoned.
