La Romana is a city set up to please every different type of traveler, and even when it comes to shopping you'll find diversity and plenty of options.  Your style and the types of wares you're after will help to dictate where the best shopping will be found for you.  

Altos de Chavon may be the best known center of shopping in the area.  Aside from its historic appeal, this is where tourists can get their hands on locally made artwork and handicrafts.  If you're looking for style and luxury, then it is La Marina de Casa de Campo which will have the most appealing offerings.  Everything in between can be found as you explore the small stand alone shops that dot the landscape of this busy, yet still relaxed, town.

Specialty Shops

One of the popular speciality shops in the area is Arte Cuseco. They are found within eastern La Romana. Every piece of artwork on display and for sale at Arte Cuseco has been handmade by a woman in the shop. These women focus on utilizing local materials, or as they call it "natural trash." This includes everything from conch shells and coconut shells to suede. You'll be able to find them at 19 Parte Atras.

A second option is Casa Montecristo Shop And Cigar Tours, which is found 10.1 mi. (16.3 km) from Arte Cuseco. Hand-created cigars in numerous blends for every different taste are available at Casa Montecristo. If you are looking to call ahead, you can do so at (809) 523-8111.

Bibi Leon: Home to the works of one of the most celebrated artists in the country, Bibi Leon, this shop which is named for her sells her handmade wares. They are said to evoke the vibrant spirit of the Dominican Republic and encourage viewers to embrace life. You can find them at 2 Calle Restauracion.
