    One of my friends just got engaged and she and her FI are starting to plan a wedding in DR. She knows her mother will be freak about topless sunbathers. She is wondering if there are any all inclusives in DR (not sure where she is looking specificly)that ban toppless sunbathing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi! I'm not sure about resorts banning topless sunbathing, but I did stay at Sunscape the Beach last month. It was a great resort! I only saw 2 topless sunbathers the entire time I was there. Most of the guests were American, and I don't think many Americans will sunbathe topless...but I could be totally wrong. Hope that helps a little!

        I'm not sure about the DR, but it seems that a lot of the AIs in Mexico ban topless sunbathing by the pool. What Cassondra said is true, most americans don't sunbathe topless (unless they're in South Beach) so if you look for a resort that caters mostly to Americans as opposed to Europeans, you're less likely to run into it. And if your friend's mother does see some topless sunbathing, what's the worst that can happen? Shouldn't she be happy that her daughter is getting married as opposed to gawking at body parts she's already seen before?

              Keep in mind that the DR is very popular with Europeans... not to generalize but some of them are more liberal. I've read reviews about people changing ENTIRE swim suits at the pool.

                Ya, I agree with your non-generalization. I know that Europeans just tend to be more casual about these things. They don't mean to offend anyone, but sometimes it can be shocking! lol. I've never seen entire swimsuits before though. We're just not use to it over here!

                  I think your friend should look at this wedding as a cultural experience for her mother. I mean, c'mon - what's the big deal? She doesn't have to look? And, it's not a sexualized thing, it's just a Euro thing. But if she absolutely can't deal with it then the DR may not be for her...

                    Hi ladies!! 

                     

                    Sunbathing topless is illegal in Dominican Republic and there are warning signs at all pools & beaches... That said, once in a while, especially if the resort is popular with Europeans, you'll spot some topless ladies. They have their own privacy and you have yours. We've been photographing weddings in Punta Cana for the last 2 years and have never seen any topless sunbathing activity affecting weddings :) 

                     

                    The only topless pool is Eden at Hard Rock Punta Cana resort... Just in case any of you are looking forward to letting your ta-ta's enjoy some sun. 

                     

                     

                     

                    Cheers!
