Other Options to Punta Cana

5- Reasons Why The #1 Destination In the Dominican Republic Is Wrong For You and where you should visit.

As the Dominican Republic was finding its place in the world’s tourism market despite all the wonderful destinations this country has to offer, its tourism industry started and ended in one location -Punta Cana. The Dominican Republic has matured past the basic all-inclusive resorts located in Punta Cana, to a wonderful place to experience beaches, the ocean, nature, rivers, lakes, mountains, Dominican culture, food, and dancing (merengue, salsa, bachata), all with the wonderful backdrop of the Caribbean.

Dominican Food

The food of the Dominican Republic is a fusion of Taino (indigenous Dominicans), Spanish, and African. Dominican main dishes are usually comprised of: fish (pescado), seafood (mariscos), chicken (pollo), some beef (carne), pork (cerdo) and goat meat (chivo). These dishes are usually cooked either fried (frito), in a creole sauce (salsa de criolla), grilled (parrallida) or stewed (guisado). For side dishes the Dominican usually have either rice (arroz), beans (Habichuela) or plantains (platanos). 

We have picked a couple of the popular dishes and have given a short explanation of the dish below.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Rebublic

Santo Domingo sits on rocky bluff overlooking the Caribbean Ocean. While this makes for wonderful views of the Caribbean while having a great dinner or walking along the melacon (seaside), the city itself doesn’t have much beach (playa) access to speak of. If you want to enjoy the sand on your feet, the sun on your head, a nice Caribbean breeze on your face, and a wonderful view of the water, you need to head to either Boca Chica or Juan Dolio.

Translate without internet

There are many translation applications you can download onto your phone but this article will talk specifically on how you can use Google’s translation app offline.


Many of the hotels, resorts and properties that people will stay at on their vacation will have WIFI but it will be very weak. Also, when you out in town, the beach, etc. you won’t have access to that WIFI. At the large resorts many of them will only have WIFI in a couple common areas and not in the rooms. If you don’t speak Spanish, you will want to make sure you can use your translator with or without internet. In order to do this you will need to install the language package for Spanish.

Your Cell Phone

Some companies like T-Mobile in the United States are making calling international easier and cheaper and you may want to use your cell phone to make calls. The main issue that you may experience is that you will have to still use the local towers to have signal. This means you need to access a local providers network and when you attempt to make your first call you will be given instructions in Spanish. If you speak Spanish great you shouldn’t have any problems...
