Shopping in Puerto Plata

While some people might recommend heading to Sosua to get your shopping fix, there are actually plenty of places to purchase local goods and souvenirs right in Puerto Plata; you just have to know where to look to find them.  

Gift shops are everywhere, from little storefronts on main streets to corners of resorts.  There is even an outdoor market on Beller Street called the Souvenirs Market that specializes the gift items, though the prices are generally high to start to encourage bargaining.  Central Park appears to be something of a bazaar with several different shops selling international products.  In all of these locations, be on the lookout for amber and larimar set jewelry, pottery and ceramics, paintings, cigars, and wood carvings.
