Enjoy the hotel and enjoy outside the hotel

This is one of the most exciting destination in the caribbean, Republica Dominicana is parto of the island of Española, shared with Haiti.
THe territory is full of magnifiquent locations and I could visit some places of the west as Punta Canta, Higuey and la Otra Banda, as well as driving as much as I could.
I visited the capital, Santo Domingo, going in local buses, the cheapest way, due to high tourist standard prices, that do not help normal tourist to get, and most of the excursions have to pick tourist from many hotels, so you can waste lot of time.
Dominican Republic cannot be compared with other caribbean island, has a proud identity rather than Cuba Jamaica or Puerto Rico and is the home of Merengue and Bachata.

I enjoy talking

I can have the cahge to talk about what I wanna learn with people of many countries, to see the opinion of theit countries. I was glad to meet tourist from Curaçao, Ecuador, Miami, USA, Macedonia or Germany.....

And meet the locals

they are fantastic, but in my hotel there are intructed to inform the tourist very strict, saiyng that outside the hotel all the places are dangerous, to enhance tourist to use hotel services.
After warm contact they will provide good info for shopping.
The spanish spoken here provide nice accent and "frases": HOLA MI AMOLL (hello darling)", "YA TU SABES (you know)", "¿COMO TU ESTAS? (how are you?"
