The few shops we went to did not even take American money. The beaches are beautiful, but the waves were so huge that the beaches were shut down; no one could swim or go into the ocean.
Amazing... "The few shops we went to did not even take American money." N.b. American money is not legal tender in the D.R. and, while it's nice that some places will deal in our currency, we shouldn't expect it. That makes us ugly American tourists.
