We are trying for the Dominican Republic again (superstorm sandy killed our plans last year) so a few questions and would appreciate answers/opinions.
1. do you still need the "tourist card" and do companies like funjet or apple include that or at least tell you what you have to do?
2. because the insurance was easy and DID pay on cancel for any reason-lol the hurricane at OUR end not theirs!, is using a tour company better than doing all the pieces of a vacation yourself?
3. we are looking at the Ambar and the Iberostar Grand (adults only both). The iberostar is about 900.00 per person MORE, so is it worth the extra money?
4. which trip company is best? i have looked at apple, funjet, and cheap caribbean, is there another i should look at? (btw the ambar is within 100.00 priced between funjet and apple)
