I have read the 2/27/07 is Dominican Independence Day. Does any one know if something special happens in Puerto Plata , other local towns , because of that holiday? A couple years ago we hit a big festival, with a big parade going on in town that was fun to see,fun to people watch, and the hotel we stayed at bused us into town to catch it, but I don’t recall what the occasion was. ??
Most of feb is festival time, try going down the Malecon on Sundays loads happening last week when I was there all building up to the 27th of Feb, yes it’s the independance day.
