My husband and I have been invited to join a group of friends traveling to the Iberostar Bavaro in mid December 2008. My questions and concerns are:
1. Have heard from many friend/relatives that they all got sick while there. Stomach/lower intestine problems. Any thoughts/knowledge?
2. Is the water safe to drink?
4. How big a hassle is customs/airport.
5. Is there a problem with bugs (on the beach, in your rooms, restaurants, etc).
6. Any day trips you could recommend?
Thank you in advance for any help you could give us. We would like to make the trip, but since literally all of my friends ended up sick there, we're a little hesitant to commit.
