Dominican Republic General: 136 reviews and 114 photos


Fondest memory: It was our first day at our hotel and we had made friends already with a couple of girls who were on our flight. One who could speak Spanish! She was a real help that week. By the time evening had rolled around we were also friends with the staff. We ended up going to a local nightclub with the staff. Now this wasn't somewhere that tourists went to, it was all local people. We had a great time even though I stuck out like a sore thumb with my, then, very blonde hair! Even my friends had dark hair, so you could really pick me out in the crowd. We were in the DJ's booth pulling music, learning how to merengue and drinking extremely strong rum and cokes. They use coke to colour it I think!

What a night that was! And what an introduction to the country!
