    I'm dominican so I know a bit. I would say depending on your tastes really. You can get a very nice resort with a beach for a pretty decent price. Can even come with benefits like free food. I would say resorts are probably the one thing our country has the best.

    If youre more of a nature guy I recommend Jarabacoa. It's a town with really high elevation so it can get pretty chilly at night especially around December. It has a lot of tropical forest so really does have that quiet nature feel.

    I would say avoid the cities. Aside from the colonial zone, theres not much the captial offers. Not when you can get the same, better experience on actual 1st world cities.

    The one skill id say is important is know when you are being swindled, know what place is likely to get you robbed, and definitely rent a car if you wanna travel anywhere avoid public transportation.

      Thanks for the advice, I was thinking on doing the cliche tropical vacation (snorkeling, lagoons, chilling at the beach, hiking, etc...) while visiting the multiples isles, got some longer stays in Aruba & Punta Cana , already got some experience in bad areas but I'm not going there anyway, will still keep an eye out tho

        Anytime. I recently went to see the Dominican-haitian border and theres a town there where you can get a hotel and do stuff. We ended up going to this beach where they give you a boat ride along the coast and drop you very far away from things. It was a nice spot since really the beaches are untouched (see pic below). The only I guess drawback is that you have to bring your own food since you are far from everything.

        They had other programs like diving and seeing sea creatures but my family isn't into that type of thing the way I am.

        Right now, the country is trying to take the western part by the border and turn it into another tourist paradise. The area is relatively safe since there's a lot of military personnel that have to guard the border at all times. The real downside is that everything is really far from just about any city with very little on the road. You would have to get a car to go over there. If thats no issue to you, I recommend the southwest before it becomes another tourist place.

        are you doing volunteer work? I can heavily respect it since im in the minority of haitian sympathizers in the country. During my trip to the DR-HT border I saw a lot of poor kids that would swarm you begging for a coin if they saw you had money. It's really sad that haiti was a country that never really got the chance to actually form. Keep up the great work man.

    worked on a cruise ship over Christmas in the youth department. We sailed into St. Maartens. Arranged a game between of bunch of our staff and another boat at the National Stadium on the French side. A couple of people showed up and were singing for us as my fat ass slogged around the pitch doing give and goes with our hungover casino buddies. Smashed the other cruise line and then got bussed back to the beach on the Dutch side. Enjoyed Christmas lunch in the sand hanging out with a ton of beers and some of the girls who joined us from the crew. Best popcorn shrimp of my life. Really nice company with refreshing beers and a beach dog hung out with us and played fetch with a chunk of driftwood.

    Spent a week each in DR (Punta Cana) and Puerto Rico. PR I enjoyed a little more because Old San Juan was close by where I was staying and I enjoy being out and about.

    The resort I was at in Punta Cana was nice though and they have ATV excursions and waterfalls within 20-30 mins of that area.

    grand cayman is nice, super chilled, expensive tho
    beautiful beaches, can be quiet areas, can be busy areas.
    the funniest thing is there are a handful of super expensive hotels that have PACKED beaches along the main tourist beach, and then are neighbored by a bunch of condo rentals that only have half a dozen visitors on their beach
    has very americanized amenities imo (not american), but you are still obviously not in america
    probably the lowest crime of any notable island

    never been to the other cayman islands, imagine them to be quite sleepy but safe.

      Virgin Islands is the most dangerous place in the US, going by homicide rate per 100k people. I wonder what the demographics there are...
