For those of us know Santo Domingo, Piantini is one of the most exclusive parts of the Dominican Republic with upscale hotels, high rise apartment complexes, and shopping malls that are considered prominent throughout the country like Blue Mall and Agora.

I know white Europeans must make up a significant amount of the population like maybe 20 percent. Maybe it is higher? I don't know.

Maybe there a few Middle Easterners and Asians as well as Americans there.

Also how much of the population there do you think is mixed race native Dominican or black Dominican? mixed race meaning european and black or european, black, or taino? Thanks.

The Dominican Upper class is not longer fully white (it never was). it Could be argued that the Dominican upper class is the most diverse in Latin america. DR never really had an aristocracy or even an real upper "class". Most rich families were in fact in the agricultural business around sugar cane and Rum, some were merchants but they never really amounted to become a real "class" in the European sense of word. Today DR upper class is made of merchants, politicians, entertainers of all backgrounds. Corruption has allowed a lot of people to move up in the social ladder very quick. Piantini reflects that, lots of neuve rich, filling up those new towers, people sending their children to expensive bilingual schools (despite maybe having a questionable education themselves) ect ect you get the idea.

Dominicans are mostly black. And the black population will only grow in the following years given as waves of Haitians keep on breaking into the country.

The DR isn't quite as black as the Anglo Caribbean. There's still plenty of mixed people all around and the white population at least around 10%.

Also, Haitians are starting to spread out to other LA countries such as Mexico and Chile.
