Looking for Larimar/Flea Market in Sosua?

Hello from Puerto Plata! We have really been enjoying our stay. Just ate at Mares tonight: AMAZING!

Here's my question: I really want to get some nice Larimar jewelry. I have seen what they have at the Playa Dorada plaza, the gift shop up at Mount Isabella, and in the Amber Museum and the Free Mercado. The stuff in the plaza was decent, but all the rest were pretty cheap trinkets (I'm looking for pieces in silver, not aluminum wire). So.... Where to buy good jewelry??

And what is the flea market like in Sosua? Is it mostly the same stuff we came across here in Puerto Plata? Need to make a decision on if it's worth the day trip for shopping.

Gracias, amigos!

Not sure what flea market you are talking about.

There is a small market every Saturday and Jolly Rodger's bar but not for the next two weeks.

There is a Pulga (used clothes store)

Best place for larimar is at Patricks silversmith shop

Patricks is at the very beginning of the main street at the top of the hill on the short road to the beach. Next to Mauri Mi restaurant and the small Palyero in town.
