Throughout some reviews I've read, for numerous hotels (it's taken us forever to actually pick one haha) and also some stuff on FB, through friends, etc....I've read just a few, but concerning comments about safety in the DR.
We've been to Cuba many times, and I always felt safe leaving the resorts, going downtown veradero by cab .,... one year it was just my 13 year old and myself and I still did this and felt safe doing so.
We (fiance and I) will be coming to the DR in June for our honeymoon. We are looking forward to some excursions, but wonder if we can venture around in the same manner as we did in Cuba.
