Dominican Republic Fossil Hunting?!

Recommended Posts



This mid western fossil hound is heading to Punta Cana for a vacay with the wife but the fossil hunter in me needs more to do than let the ladies gaze at my miraculous beer belly! haha I'm doing research into the area we are staying and I'm wondering if this would be a good area to sift for fossilized teeth or bone. I know PC is guarded by a reef, so modern shark teeth are unlikely but I'm not sure where this land mass sat throughout our eras. 


Any advise would be appreciated. I know the Dominican Republic is know for their Amber mines (which would be cool). Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks all! :)

From the attached post, it doesn't appear to be a particularly fossiliferous area.

Good luck.
