"The locals are after your..." Dominican Republic Tourist Trap Tip by saint_eve

Dominican Republic Tourist Traps: 45 reviews and 15 photos

The locals are after your money and will sell you any old crap. When taking a bus tour they will drive you to a dodgy shop in the middle of nowhere and will wait until everyone bought something one does not need...
Also, watch out for people who will want to make your hair into millions of little pleads. I managed to keep my hair 'natural' for the complete holiday but it was a tough piece of work since they seem obsessed by wanting to plead your hair for money.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
