    I can report that my nephew has used them for years and has been very happy with their service.

    Yesterday there was good news in that the Jones Act of the USA had been suspended in the case of Puerto Rico. The act said that only US ships with US crews could deliver to Puerto Rico, so that all help from the DR had to go first to the USA. Now aid can go direct to Puerto Rico which means we can send water and food to our neighbour and just hope the distribution process improves .

    My understanding is that AirBnB is available in the RD. Am I mistaken?

    In the post there are 2 links, one is the normal rent and the other is a link to receive refugees in your house.

    Default Willing to help.

    As some of you have noted and expressed concern for our PR neighbors some very heart felt reactions.

    Some bring up the commercial aspect that they are "human". My heart sinks at such "crap".

    We in the D.R. are very lucky. TWICE! My wife and I have tried to help our friends in the PR via the Red Cross, Fema, CNN, Fox, our Reps from any where and NOT ONE RESPONSE AT ALL!

    We have a 3 b/3b fully functional with all our own keep it going infrastructure and less then 10 mins. to a well equipped clinic. We are willing and invite a family unit of 12... or more to use it. We will adjust as needed. My wife and I will send a plane loaded with canned fruit to unload and bring people back to POP and get them back into ... we care mode.

    But No One responds. Not one.

    We are soo depressed that we can help and ask nothing but to help but...................... can not contact or get a response from anyone.

    Anyone know of private planes from POP to San Juan?

    Yes, I was one of the first to sign up with them. Years ago now. As for any free rooms, I have no idea. Normally Airbnb sends me notices on their suggestions. I have seen nothing on that point.

    there is a lot of confusion about the Jones Act - but if you actually read my post - I know I write excessively long posts
    you will find
    this

    "Carlos C. Martinez Rivera "Even before today's amend to the law, there is regular traffic of goods from the DR to PR on the ferry. It is coming from the DR, but the company is based in Puerto Rico. I used it regularly to travel to and from both island, there is one boat that is a cruise and ferry, and a second boat that is just for cargo. The one that is for cargo has been in operation since at least two days supplying diesel, generators, and other emergency items needed to run buildings without electricity to Mayagüez and other western towns. The port in Mayagüez wasn't really damaged, but the offices and some building were. It needed the OK from Customs, USDA and ICE before it could receive cargo on the ferry, so It took a few days, but it has saved the west from collapsing."
