shopping

Punta Cana is not the kind of place where you can shop ’til you drop, but you can still have fun checking out local shopping destinations. The Palma Real Shopping Village, located right at the resort, offers retailers like Guess, Armani, Billabong, Converse and many more. Plaza Bávaro is a bit more local-oriented; if you like to haggle you will enjoy this colourful market. San Juan Shopping Center also has plenty of shops to discover. Visit the open-air Bi2JH2O (pronounced bee-bee-HA-gua) Artisanal Shopping Plaza for handicrafts, cigars, local art and other souvenirs.
