About
There is so much more to the Dominican Republic than sun and beaches. Learn about the island’s fascinating culture and heritage through its most popular exports on a unique and lively shopping tour. During your visit you will be able to dive in into history of coffee and how it made its way to Dominican Republic. Explain main differences in roasting of coffee and how the taste differs according to the altitude where it’s growing. What makes Dominican cacao rank number one in the world, how it came to Dominican Republic and even you will be able to see how cacao was used in ancient times. Your guide will tell you how the chocolate and local liquor “MamaJuana” is made, and let you try it too. :) This is definitely the best way to shop for original handicrafts and souvenirs in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!

When we hopped in the complementary van to take us to this shop, we weren't sure what to expect. We were told it was "a gift shop much bigger than at the resort." However, upon arrival our guide, Edison, introduced us to a variety of chocolates and flavors. Then helped us find everything we wanted from Larimar jewelry to Taino god figures with pamphlets to explain them. Without his explanations and opportunities to try items, I would never have known what to purchase. After only 40 min, we had found Christmas gifts for everyone on our lists.

Edison was AWESOME! He stayed with my son and I the whole time helping us with tastings and product selection. He wasn’t trying to “sell” us on anything - just help us get what we wanted. He played great music on the short drive (15 minutes from Hyatt Ziva) to the shop. We felt safe and treated like friends. He even showed us pictures of his family and we shared baseball stories of our sons while shopping.

We went to Taino in Wednesday morning! After we called for information in about 1 hour later a bus waited for us outside the lobby of our hotel. The transportation was free(to taino and back to the hotel). We met a very polite girl who explained us all about mamahuana (traditional drink), coffee, tea and chocolate. We tasted it too. All was excellent. After this we went to the shop. It had an enormous variety of magnets of punta cana and santo domingo, jewels, things for decoration, cups and a lot of things more! My husband also try a cigar for free( it is possible for everyone) and we bought some. He told me was excellent. And finally we took some mamahuana for all back to greece. The place was interesting, amazing, the stuff fantastic and sure value for money. The best choice for your presents and yourselves.
