How far is the Plaza Bavaro from the Caribe Club Princess

Hi there, could anyone tell me how far the Plaza Bavaro is from the Caribe Club Princess? What type of stores do they have? I'm mainly looking for somewhere to buy souveniers, T-shirts, (the guys have all put in their orders for Beer T-shirts) and I'm also looking for where I can purchase reasonably priced local alcohol.

Thanks everyone,

Bavaro Plaza is about a 7 min walk from the lobby. It is where the Tower Casino of the Bavaro Princess is. The red stiped canvas roofed golf cart is the shuttle for the casino. You can walk or hop a ride if it is in the evening when you go shopping.

They have all kinds of souvenir stores. Same junk in all stores. Some of it is more unique others is the crap you could find at our dollar stores that sells for 12 times the price once in tourist country.

I found this time around the hotel gift store had very reasonable prices on t-shirts. 10$ US for nice t-shirts. I did try to find the same at the shops (mainly in the village of el Cortecito) and the price was higher and the quality of the print or embroidery poorer. this way I didn't have to worry about haggling or the headaches of not feeling at ease while looking around. The boutique beside the cigar store had really cool t-shirts packed inside a plastic form of a beer bottle. I thought it was well done.
