There are some nice schools there is POP if what you want is a total immersion into POP/Dominican culture for your child. It might be rough for a few weeks, and h/she will need a lot of support, but it can be done. Try San Jose first.Hi,
I am looking for a school for my son to attend and I will be in the Puerto Plata area this month to look. I am particularly interested in schools that are helpful to kids who are still learning Spanish. We definitely want him to do his course work in Spanish. We would also like to know about opportunities for ex pats (14 years old) to play organised baseball
As for baseball, there are baseball leagues in POP, amateurs looking to play baseball. Just ask any of the people at the local ballpark and they can point you in the right direction. I am going through the same thing here in Santiago with my 13 y.o. grandson..not to worry, he will find a team.
Note that these "leagues" are the sustenance of the league's owners. There is a cost involved. Usually a few dollars a week. Have photos and a photocopy of the birth certificate on hand and be prepared to travel around with the team.\
