Vacation Learning: Dominican Republic #4 Santo Domingo

If you are headed to Santo Domingo with kids, there is a wonderful interactive experience waiting for them.  The place is called Peképolis. It is an educational park where they can take on many roles: T.V news anchor, veterinarian, pediatrician, chef, firefighter, consumer, archaeologists, police officer, detective...etc.  It is very similar to Divercity in Colombia with a few additional community worker stations.  The kids got to pick jobs, and earned money by performing tasks.  Our kids loved it.  I would love one of these museums here in Illinois.  
Each of the different stations, like the bank, or ice cream parlor, gives the kids a chance to interact with a guide and learn a little bit about the trade. The kids took care of babies, and rescued treasures all while learning and having fun!

  1. Fabulous! It looks like Kidzania in London. Such a great idea.

    1. Yes! I just google Kidzania and it looks just like Divercity in Barranquilla (Colombia), and Peképolis in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). I am yet to find one like it here in the United States.
