    Do you guys know if we can use all our stuf (i.e. Straightners, blow dryers, etc) in Punta Cana. I was planning on doing my own hair for the wedding...

      i went to la romana, the southern end of DR, last summer and it was not a problem. we plugged in cell phones and cameras and stuff with no issues. (be careful using your cell phone, muy expensive:)

      I also checked on their website for you and found this:
      Electricity in the Dominican Republic operates at 110 Volts/60 Hertz as it does in the United States. Therefore, converters are not necessary. However, because voltage irregularities are common in the country - sometimes providing less voltage, sometimes surging - it is important that any appliances or computers you intend to use have surge protection
      My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

          I was just fixing to do a search on this . . . leaving on the 2nd for a wedding & wasn't sure if I needed to get any type of converter or not.

          Thanks for the info!!!

            Do most resorts have hair dryers included in the room? I wasn hoping not to have to take my hair dryer...
