Travel with Respect

Dominicans are kind and peaceful people. Attempts at speaking Spanish are a good sign of respect for the local people. Be polite, show respect and do your best to speak the language and you will be treated with kindness.AVOID talking about Haiti! Some Dominicans still don't respect Haitian people since the border wars in the 1800's and 1900's. Gang Wars can erupt along the border, so stay cautious!

Travel Safe

The age of consent is 18. Tourists who have sex with minors may also be prosecuted by their home country.Using common sense is the best way to stay safe. Tourists are advised not to travel alone in cities if possible as muggings are fairly common. Streets are largely unlit after dark, even in the captial of Santo Domingo, and are subject to routine power outages. Wild dogs are common throughout the country but largely ignore people (feeding these dogs is not recommended as this may induce aggressive behavior). Western travellers are advised to dress casually and remove rings and other jewelery when away from tourist destinations. However common tourist destinations, in particular the more expensive, luxury hotels and areas are very safe. Corruption is rampant and the level of professionalism of the National Police is somewhat debatable. To protect income from tourism the government has established the Polit Tour or "tourist police" which is tasked with the safety of foreign tourists. Travellers are advised to contact this agency if any problems are encountered as they will have a much more positive response than with the national police.
