KEEP YOUR DOCUMENTS WITH YOU

Recommended Posts

Just as a warning... never let your passport or original documents (birth certificates and such) out of your sight.  If someone needs to copy something, then go with them and watch them do it but never entrust it to a wedding coordinator or other "government official" unless they are your personal friend or family. 

 

I will be writing up my story under the "Dominican Republic" forum later this week.

Thanks for the advice!  I'm sorry to hear something didn't go so well for you!

yes. that is something you have to be VERY careful about. When I went to mexico in 2009 my mom was very insistant on having all of our "important" things with us at all times, it was a huge pain in the ass lugging a huge beach bag around 24/7 but I'm glad we did. My stepdad had a few to many ceasers over breakfast and ended going back to the room to lay down (we had conjoining rooms with my parents) and he had someone actually come into their room and when they saw that there was someone in there took off. All the lights and whatnot were off and it looked like noone was there until he sat up and said something thinking it was one of us. So who knows if it was someone that worked at the resort or what but it wasnt any of us. It would be nice to know what their plan was to begin with but that just goes to show yoru belongings are not safe out of your sight, even in your room. I personally wouldnt even trust the "safes" they have in the rooms, for starters they arent bolted down or anything so anyone can just up and walk off with them not only that, im assuming you arent the only person that knows the code or has the key to get in. Something to be very weary about....lol

I advise everyone to check in with the local embassy and ensure that they know that you are there and the instructions you were given.  If I would have called the US embassy in DR, I would have known that our wedding coordinator and judge were corrupt and we could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble.

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
