"Do not be rude...Your in their..." Dominican Republic Local Custom Tip by melissamn1

Dominican Republic Local Customs: 79 reviews and 81 photos


Do not be rude...Your in their country. Always make an effort to say hello, good morning, thank you, your welcome..etc. They are very polite and always want to talk. If you plan on going on the jeep ride bring some 'trinkets' for the kids. Ex..pencils, pens..school supplies. The parents don't like the tourists giving out CANDY because it will rot the teeth. Make a note to tip!! Especially the baggage people at the resorts...etc. Another thing..when your leaving from the week of vacation leave a tip for the maids on the table. They work hard to keep your stay nice and pleasant.
