Thanks for the heads up I'm sailing her soon! I've been to La Romania before. Dominican Republic is very 3rd world the poor people seemed desperate for money and I'm sure they could use it badly. We had some people trying to sell beads to our tour bus and were sort of scary. I am heading to Santo Domingo this time around to see the history there, oldest cathedral in the Western Hemisphere and Columbus light house. I went to Altos De Chavon artist village last time and loved it, no one hounded us to buy there, and I regret not purchasing some oil paintings they were lovely.I'm also going to snorkel the ship wreck in Aruba, and doing a unique private Jeep ecco tour in Curacao. In Grand Turk I'm heading to a small resort for the day nothing fancy but I hope to escape the crowds enjoy the beach maybe snorkel and take a taxi to see the Space Capsule, and Lighthouse first.
