Cabarete in February  (3 Answers)

Hi All
Just retired a few years ago and now my wife and I are starting to travel. We have booked a condo for the month of February.
I know it is very popular for all water sports but what activities should we look into?
Would like to take a few items for people who live there that make our stay enjoyable. What to bring?
We live in Canada, what should we bring that is difficult to get there?

Thank you

Jet skiing in D.R?

Hello fellow travelers!

I read somewhere that jet skiis are not allowed in Punta Cana due to safety. Is this true? If so, is there somewhere else in D.R. that you can recommend that allows jet skis?

Thank you!

Currency Export  (7 Answers)

Hi! I am going on a mission trip to the Dominican in a few days. I read on the Visa website that you can bring the Dominican Peso into the country, but you cannot take it back to the U.S. Is this still true?

Dreams LaRomana dress code for ala-carte restaurants  (1 Answer)

I see that the restaurants say no flip flops - does this mean that open toed shoes need a strap on the back?
Can ladies wear sleeves top/dresses, is the ' no sleeveless' just for men?
We have been to resorts that are very strict on policy and some that are not - so just checking.
Thanks!

Where to stay for 3 weeks in Dominica Republic?  (5 Answers)

I will be staying in the Dominican Republic for 3 weeks with my wife and son, and am looking for a place where the beach (the prettier the better) is quiet, yet there are still plenty of good-quality establishments nearby for eating and lounging around. Good snorkeling nearby would be nice too.
Thank you for any suggestions!

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · July 17, 2014
Samana or Cabarete? Couple's getaway

I'm trying to decide where in DR to go for a 3 night getaway, just me and my husband, in November. I'm considering samana or cabarete. I like the adults-only Bahia resort in samana, cayo levantado. I prefer to go where i will see no kids (i have two), but in an all-inclusive, i'm afraid of missing out on all the local foods and fun night life. My husband would certainly appreciate a more Dominican feel to his vacation days then myself, but I don't mind it. Do you think i'll find better options in cabarete? or should i do a non-all inclusive in samana?

Problem with Delta Vacations Destination Experts (e.g., TraficTours)  (6 Answers)

Has anyone received an early morning phone call from their Delta Vacations destination expert (in my case, it was TraficTours)? I was awakened by a 7:45 AM phone call on my first full day at Punta Cana. The representative said that I had to show up at for an 8:30 AM meeting. I had talked to a lot of Delta Vacations people but no one told me that I had to attend any meeting. Is this a common practice? Did I really have to show?

Entering DR without a return ticket home  (1 Answer)

I want to visit DR for a few months. Although, I do not want to return back to the USA from there. I want to bounce to another country afterwards, although I haven't figured out where I wanna go. I wanna figure that out towards the end of departing from the DR. How would I go about this...? (Since I heard you can't enter the DR with a one way ticket)

Blue Bay Villas Doradas Puerto Plata  (3 Answers)

I have read all the travel pages from VTers on the all-inclusive resort on the northern coast of the Dominican
Republic. Most sound fantastic , with the occasional traveler who complains about everything.

Another VT friend and I will be there for 6 nights during June. Any more ideas, comments, suggestions for
fun in the sun while there? I notice that Kaspian has been there, and I emailed him for ideas, but he has
not replied. This is my first time at an all-inclusive. I anticipate an easy vacation......yes?
