Dajabon is another Dominican Republic city close to the border of Haiti. It is the capital city of Dajabon Province and situated on the river banks of the infamous Dajabon River. It can be accessed by passing through Monti Christi using secondary roads. Cheap flights to Dajabon are usually directed to the nearest airport.
Dajabon is practically not for tourism as there is nothing to see in the city except the city market where Haiti people sell their wares. If you would like to see and witness the lively trade between Dominicans and Haiti's people, you can embark a one day tour in the city and enjoy this particular market scene.
What's unusual here is that Haiti people set foot and cross the Dajabon River Bridge to sell everything from pots, pans, clothing, shoes, perfumes, house tools, decorations and small furniture and machines; most of them are from different world charity organizations. They sell their wares cheap as everything has to go before the sun sets.
Shopping for an item here would mean haggling with the seller and hunting for the best buys. If you happen to like an item, make sure you know how to haggle and negotiate for the right price. Most of time, you will end up buying a lot of items not only because they're cheap but with the intentions of helping Haitians turn these donated items into hard cash.
There are no hotels in Dajabon but one good for an overnight stay. You can find this hotel along Parque Central and people can easily turn you to the exact location. Don't expect to have full amenities and facilities but you'll get clean bed and clean bathroom for a low rate.
You can roam around the city on foot or you can take the motoconchos (taxi). Leaving the city, you can catch guagua (minivan) which leaves Dajabon terminal on a scheduled trip.
Although there is not too many to do and see in Dajabon, getting cheap flights to Dajabon is still worth it only for the unique culture of the people. If you are a camera bug, you'll have the best opportunity to capture candid nature of Dominicans as well as the Haitians.
