PALMA REAL SHOPPING VILLAGE

Palma Real Shopping Village is a swanky, partially enclosed mall that is also the most expensive. Fountains and tropical plants infuse life into the bright and airy interiors beneath the blue-tile roof. Music plays through the stone-floor plaza in the center, where seating
is available and security is tight. Upscale retail shops, which sell beachwear, clothing, skin-care products, and jewelry, line the walls. Several restaurants give visitors welcome dining alternatives beyond the gates of their resorts. There’s also a movie theater, the only
one in Punta Cana. There are two banks, ATMs, and a money exchange outlet. It has the best pharmacy in the area. Shuttle buses run to and from many of the hotels, with pick-ups every two hours.

PLAZA BÁVARO SHOPPING CENTER

Plaza Bávaro Shopping Center has dozens of shops spanning two sides of the main street that cuts through its center. It is a Dominican hodgepodge; like a neighborhood without any zoning restrictions. On the side closest to the beach you can find clothing stores, jewelry, cigars, and crafts, as well as money-exchanges, a DHL shipping station, and a pharmacy, all laid out in a square; in the middle is a bar where you can take a beverage break. Across the street, most of the booths sell artwork and handicrafts.

PLAZA UVERO ALTO

Plaza Uvero Alto is a convenient shopping center for the hotels in the remote Uvero Alto area of Punta Cana. Especially useful are a bank and outdoor ATM, a money exchange, followed by Internet access, a small pharmacy, gift shops, and two minimarkets (one in the front, the other in the back row of booths). Here you can get sundries like sunscreen and deodorant at prices much cheaper than in the hotels. Behind the first row of enclosed stores, visit the colorful kiosks full of handicrafts, paintings, ceramics, and other gift items. There’s also a branch of the Politur (tourist police) in the plaza.
