      Wooden houses

      Puerto Plata Nov 26, 2016 at 5:30 PM

      I was on a tour of the city of Puerto Plata and the guide (named Jesus) spoke English but with an accent. He said something that I didn't quite understand. It was something to the effect that if you didn't use wood for your house that you had to pay two fees, one to the governor. I have not been able to find anything about this on the internet. I asked the guy who runs the tour agency and his response was

      "I told to Jesus about your restlessness. I am sendimg you a Link where you can see some of our vitoriana Houses, and can read a little bit of the history, but you have to translate to english."

      I looked at this website and translated some of it, but it appears to be mostly an argument about whether they should call the wooden houses with the gingerbread trim 'Victorian' or some other term - because apparently Victorian is a bourgeois European type architecture.

      Can anyone think of what the guide was trying to say or the basic story behind it?

      A Special Place in Boca Chica

      by Boosmom Online Now Aug 10, 2006 at 12:29 AM

      I just returned from a wonderful trip to Dominican Republic. I spent some time in Boca Chica (about 40 minutes south of Santo Domingo), and need some information if anyone is planning to go there soon (or is already there). I went to a restaurant on the main street and need to get the address and phone number. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name. It's weird though. It was a combination of three names all rolled together into one so it was fairly long. I think it had some "l's","a's" and "m's" in the name. The guys that owns it are French. The place was nice with good food (open all day). It had a lot of wood counters and stools with a passage-way straight to the beach. They had a big pizza oven in front with a window and they baked fresh bread every morning. The manager was named "Thomas" and the pizza cook was "Miguel". It's really important that I have this information. If anyone can help me out I would be forever grateful. THANK YOU!!

      I am an independent traveller, and this summer I want to stay in Boca Chica with my friend but I don't want the standard all included beach resort, "honeymoon" like.... I would like a nice, not very expensive independent hotel close to the beach. Can anyone help me? Thank you very much in advance
