Just stick to bottled watera nd you will be fine. The resort will provide plent of it for you and always have it at the bar and in your hotel room and at the restaurants :)

I got a Havrix vaccination before I went... and have to get the booster six months after the initial vaccine, so sometime this fall. Havrix covers one of the Hepatistis strains, not sure which one, but I had already been vaccinated in school for the other strain. Twinrix is recommended to cover both.

 

I came back from the DR with no issues what so ever though, so it probably isnt necessary as everyone else says!

It isn't a bad idea to get Hep A &/or Hep B. The combined shot is Twinrix. This will cover you if you do any other travelling as well. I myself would prefer to get the vaccine to protect my liver than to regret not getting it, but everyone has their opinions on vaccines.

As for the malaria medication, you start taking it a week before you go and finish taking it a week after returning home I believe. The medication is called, Chloroquine. It is pill form for adults and liquid for shildren. Both forms taste awful too. This medications is recommended if you are travelling to the Punta Cana area but not Puerto Plata.

You could always put the info out there for your guests and let them decide if they are going to do anything with it.

I was there in late April and was bitten a few times (I attract them), but barely used bug spray. I think a small bottle should do just in case.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
