A time-honored restaurant in the Zona Colonial (Colonial Zone), Mesón d'Bari serves fresh regional fare in a restored, two-story house. Inside, the restaurant contains brick archways, white-clothed tables, and large, for-sale paintings by local artists.

Located in the Hotel Conde de Peñalba in the center of the Zona Colonial (Colonial Zone), this casual café serves traditional Dominican cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Expect seclusion and serenity in one of 51 cane-thatched suites at Agua Resort & Spa on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic.
