Manoguayabo is a small suburb of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. It is best known as the birthplace of Major League Baseball pitcher Pedro Martínez.

Manoguayabo is much like any other Dominican neighborhood, but by American standards is still poor. But, with many contributions made by Pedro Martínez, the town has built churches, schools and a baseball field. Near this suburb is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the city.
