As name of the thread said how many times you traveled to Dominican Republic? Personally I visited Puerto Plata and Punta Cana and I had amazing vacations in both places.
I have visited Punta Cana and surrounding areas 20+ times. Just got back this Saturday and heading out again in May
Seventeen trips to Punta Cana at last count...Most trips recently to Punta Cana but also stayed in Santa Domingo, Puerto Plata and Samana...
Debbie you need to explore other regions of this beautiful country
I've lost count, but we've done Santo Domingo, Punta Cana and Puerto Plata. Samana is on our short list.
Question: Most people visit for one week. We normally go for two weeks. Does that count as two trips?
LOL Bob... I usually do 2 weeks and my best so far has been 4 weeks and then I never want to come home LOL
I'm familiar with that problem. I'm not looking forward to any vacation I want to come home from ....
How many weeks visa is good for Dominican Republis? 6 Months or?
Bob, I "hear" you have a cute little place
I think the tourist visa is good for 30 days, after that you must pay extra upon exit. I'm sure BobK will have better information on this and the surcharges.
We have made 14 trips to the D.R. 9 trips to the Puerta Plata area, 4 trips to Punta Cana & 1 trip to Samana. Most of our trips have been a 2 week duration.
I believe that cost wise 14 days trips are much better as you pay same amount of taxes as when you going for 7 days!
I came here once....Never left
Right. That second week is usually quite inexpensive. You've already paid the airfare and the taxes. All you have to pay for is an extra week in the hotel.
So the only problem is for the most people to find time to go and spend 14 days in Dominican Republic
I want Debbies job lol
are you ready to change your career?
Haven't been as often as I'd like (we travel as a group and take turns picking destination and price is a big factor).
Been to Puerto Plata 4 times, Samana 1 time and Punta Cana 2 times, so 7 trips in total, all for 2 weeks each.
But you went to Mexico and other destinations as well so you travel a lot as well. I met many people that never went anywhere! So how many people in the group? That is fun traveling in the group and nice that you can organize such trips all the time as it is not easy to get time off duties at the same time and travel.
We have been to Punta Cana 1 time for a week and Puerto Plata 14 times... most at the beginning were at the Gran Ventana for 2 weeks but we did do 3 weeks one trip. In 2012, we rented a 2 bedroom condo in Costambar (just outside POP) for a month, 2013 we rented same condo for 5 weeks.... just got back last week from same condo where we stayed for 10 weeks. Wish we had booked for 12 weeks cause it has been so cold since we got back last Thursday!!! Think 2015 will be for 12 or 14 weeks!!!
