Dominicus Americus

Dominicus Americus Review

Nicknamed "Little Italy," this town was developed mostly by Italians, who, it is said, brought tourism here. The main drag, however, is named after a pioneering American, Wayne Fuller. In the early 1970s he bought large tracts of waterfront land, which he sold and where the major resorts now flourish. The original houses in Dominicus, built in the 1970s, are painted mostly in Caribbean pastels A more moderne wave of both apartments and single-family houses has proliferated. One main street holds most of the shops and there are a few simple restaurants (some with Wi-Fi), bars, a supermarket, and tour agencies where excursions are sold mostly to Isla Catalina and Isla Saona. Most of the resorts are on Playa Dominicus; the casino at Monte Carlo Plaza enlivens the night.
