      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."

      diariolibre.com/m/noticias/l...

      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?

    • Iberostar Dominicana or Ocean Sand

      Provincia de San Juan Feb 5, 2007 at 9:46 AM

      Anyone been to both these resorts. If so which is best? Both look very good in the brochure, but that can be very misleading!
      I understand both resorts share their facilities with sister hotels, and am somewhat concerned as to the actual size of resorts & numbers of people there. I am to travel mid July, and hate having to rise early in order to play the towel game (all nationalities are guilty of this!). Also concerned as to the availability in the a-la-cartes.
      Please Help!
