Anyone ever been? Had a look through google for information, etc but it only really brought up economy facts and t he like so does anyone have any informative links?

Useful facts like drinking age, places to visit would be much appreciated. Cheers

    You'll find if you go to the Dominican then the places to visit are all done by tour guides. You would not be advised to go off on your own as it is a poverty stricken country. It's getting better every year but will be a long while before it is safe to wander as a tourist, you're very likely to get stabbed in the back for your cash if you wander round on your todd. Having said that the place is gorgeous (or at least the tourist spots are, the poverty lifestyle is upsetting).

    The people are friendly, if you want nightlife and a jet-set lifestyle not ideal. If you want all inclusive piss ups, cheesy nightlife/caberet, relaxation, sun and watersports then go.

    I fully enjoyed it. You get to put your feet up for 2 weeks, eat loads and drink loads and you only have to go on the trips if you want to :)
