Larimar Shopping

The Dominican Republic is the only place in the world with deposits of the gemstone larimar. A rich blue which appears as turquoise, nearly all of the larimar is mined in the mountains along the southwestern border with Haiti. While finding larimar outside of the Domincan Republic can be a difficult (and costly) endeavor, you can larimar from Santo Domingo to Puerto Plata and and stores of Punta Cana. As is to be expected, the larimar sold in the Dominican Republic is at heavily-reduced rates when compared to other parts of the world.
