Should tourists avoid the "Outback Safari or the Bavaro...

Because of the Malaria warning, is it wise to avoid these tours? Does anyone know how far into the jungle they go? I was really looking forward to seeing how some of the Dominican people live. I have been collecting odds and ends for months to give away. Any info would be great.

Thanks everyone for all the info on the meds for Malaria. Now when I go to see the Doc, I will have a bit of information even if he hasn't, and saves me a bit on going to the travel clinic as well.

Bon Voyage Bellini.

It all depends on which part of the country you are going to...

If you are staying in Puerto Plata, you will be fine.

Just bring lots of bug spray

OH MY GOD NO!!!! Don't miss this trip for anything in the world. It was the best experience my family ever had, especially if you go on the trip where they end it by taking you to the waterfalls that you climb up. Also, we spent a week there this summer and never got bit by one bug . . . honest!!!
