5 Travel Tips for the Dominican Republic

#dominicanrepublic #traveltips #caribbean

Having been in the Dominican Republic for 6 weeks, there are a handful of tips that I would have found incredibly helpful before arriving in Santo Domingo (and travelling to Cabarete on the North Coast).

They are admittedly from anecdotal experience. However, I am not the only person to have had these issues in the Dominican Republic.

A quick summary of my travel tips for the DR:

Tip 1: At the airport, get to customs as quickly as possible.

Tip 2: Electronics are temperamental. Some devices work, some don’t. Some charge, some don’t. Even when using different chargers!

Tip 3: Wear mosquito repellent, straight away. There are a lot of mosquitos in the Dominican Republic.

Tip 4: Bring a good raincoat. It might not rain when you’re here, but if it does, you’ll be thankful you have a good waterproof in a tropical thunderstorm.

Tip 5: Transport options are harder than in other places (like South East Asia).

Bonus tip: If you suffer from Hayfever or allergies, it cane particularly bad in the DR!

Hopefully these tips are useful if you’re looking to travel to the Dominican Republic either for holiday (vacation) or for a longer stay.
