This is "the coolest bookworm spot in town". They have a great collection of hard to find history and informative literature. There are many history books about Dominican Republic in both English and Spanish. They also publish their own books, hold lectures and much more. There is a nice little patio inside where you can sit and relax while looking at the books. The man working there, Pedro, knows his books and loves to help you find just what you are looking for. You can join for a small yearly fee and get discounts on their books and lots more.

I have used their veterinary services for my own dog. They were very courteous and treated my dog like a queen. The vet even called a few times to see how my dog was and when I didn't have money he still gave my dog her needed treatments. I highly recommend them for veterinary services.
