UN / Locode: DO SPM


The port of San Pedro de Macoris is located on the Higuamo River mouth on the Southern coast of the Hispaniola Island, about 70 kilometres east of Santo Domingo. This port is used mainly for exporting cement in bulk and in bags, clinker, sugar and molasses and fertilizer in bags. It is also used to import bulk fertilizers and wheat. Also tankers vessels discharge fuel oil at the floating power plant and white products and LPG to shore tanks at the CBM arrangements of Coastal Petroleum and Cogentrix.


Being situated at the mouth of a river, the port is subjected to continuous silting. Therefore we suggest you always double check with us before you make any commitments that require a draft near the upper limit.

The bottom in the Entrance channel and harbour consists generally of soft mud and silt.


Controlling Depth in the entrance channel 8,0 m.
