Anette was the guite who treated the guests like naughty children without any reason. In a museum I am the one who decides what an when I watch the exhibits, NOT THE GUIDE!!! In a most impertinent way ANETTE behaved inaccetably and outrageous! NEVER AGAIN!!!

It is in Old Puerto Plata near the Cathedral. It is a fair distance from Playa Dorado. Can't say for sure how far but you cannot walk. Sorry I do not know more. We had a car and drove in from Sosua.
