Dreams Palm Beach

I am going 2/18/2010 to Dreams Palm Beach and a couple questions I hope someone can answer.

Is there a safe way to bring back Cuban cigars?

Is there much nudity?

Is marijuana widely used?

Have you been there and what is your opion of this place?

"Is there much nudity?" people in bikinis and speedos: Yes. Topless: a few. Full nudity: no.

"Is marijuana widely used?" No, the DR is not a drug tolerant country. I wouldn't risk bringing your own supply as they regularly use sniffer dogs at Punta Cana airport.

Was just at Dreams Palm Beach...

Not sure about bringing back Cigars or if you will get REAL Cubans. I would suggest when you are at the resort to talk to Duncan at the AMStar Desk or Guest Services to find out where to get the best Cigars and how to take them back home.

While I was there I saw some toplessness, but not a lot. Never saw any total nudity.

As far as I `know marijuana is illegal there like it is in the US. Maybe you were asking about MAMAJUANA the drink that is made of herbs and roots and mixed with RUM and Honey and served quite often at the bars there and throughout the Dominican Republic

Happy Travels,

We have seen the K-9 crew on all trips into the Punta Cana Airport.

As mentioned, it's a big no-no in the DR. You do not want to get caught with it in your posession.

Very easy to find mariuana in punta cana, just ask the people who try to sell you necklaces and cigars, was just at dreams palm beach and finding mariuana was very very easy. Have a great trip
