Dominican Republic: Dominican Republic, faro del caribe, lake enriquillo
faro del caribe, lake enriquillo, monte cristi: Hi, Don -- Forget about going to Haiti from the DR easily.

Dominican Republic: Dominican republic foods, caribbean lobster, domican republic

Dominican Republic: drinking age, friend need, underage drinkers
friend need, underage drinkers, sunscape: If your parents give you permission at the front desk, when you get your all-inclusive wristband put on, you ll probably be fine.

Dominican Republic: drinking age, drinking age, drunk drivers
drinking age, drunk drivers, punta cana: Hi, Shannon: In theory, 18. In reality, if you are staying at an all-inclusive, closer to 14, depending on the bartender. But in all cases, stay off the roads. Dominican police are often very, very rough (and I mean physically) on drunk drivers. -- Georg...

Dominican Republic: drinking in punta cana, march break, southeast coast
march break, southeast coast, drinking age: Hi, Sandy!
