long sleeves

I have read that men must wear long pants at dinner. No problem. But I have read that long sleeves are also required. Last year, few men had long sleeves. Is it a custom in the Dominican for long sleeves and do the locals find it offensive if my arms are not covered at mealtime?

No long sleeves required anywhere I have been. Just no sleeveless shirts, tank tops, for men.

H NSsunseeker,

We are heading to the Bavaro Princess April 3-10th. We can't wait. I have been reading alot on these forums and there is mention of men wearing pants in the a la carte restaurants but I didn't hear anything about long sleeves.

Hey TravelAsh:

Been to Caribe last year and wife was there year before. It's a great resort and we had no issues with anything. Maybe we will run into each other.

Sunnymommy, if you are going April 3rd, we are probably on the same plane. Westjet 0800am (time change)
