Monday night we ventured out the local road toward the "caves" to an authentic Dominican place called Mercedes. Wonderful dinner for around $800 RD for all of us. When we showed up the only other patrons were a family from Wisconsin who had walked there from their resort -- at least a mile on a rough road. They seemed relieved to see us and were very happy when we gave them a lift back to town after dinner. Stopped at Bon for ice cream.
