I'm learning lots and lots about the lovely Dominican Republic, but I still have lots of answers that searching this forum hasn't answered. To name a few...
We're renting a condo in October in Playa Turquesa, we have a $20 a day credit already built in to the price of condo, can anyone give me a general guide about what to expect if we run the A/C only at night?
I'm trying to budget cash for the all the expenses involved and want to be sure I haven't under estimated.
Like wine, for example. While I am no wine snob, I do LOVE good, hearty, delicious, full-bodied, red wine. And I would love to know what is available locally - I love Chilean Reds! - tell me what to look for, and how much to expect to pay, if possible.
And like I mentioned, we'll be in a condo, and we love to cook - so I'm going to be leaning heavily on the local fruit/veggie carts and local fisherman. But we'll stock up on our way from the airport.
Figure the very basics - eggs, milk, cream, cheese, garlic, herbs, some fruit, veg and beef, chicken, pork, butter or oil, bacon(?). Anyone have any idea in Dominican Pesos what I'd expect to spend for a weeks work for very basic staples for two? I have no frame of reference... so any info helps.
I really appreciate any advice, these boards have guided me on many an adventure!
