    Default Questions about night life in SD (2 guys from Europe, late 20´s).

    We will be visiting the capital, we choose SD over Sosua, because we want a more ¨authentic experience¨.

    Can you recommend some high end disco´s? 
    Is it safe for tourists to go clubbing/ partying with locals?

    How dangerous is SD compared to Rio de Janiero? Can I walk around with my Canon / iPhone/ Dre Beats?

    Leave your Canon/iPhone/Dre Beats locked up in the room safe at your hotel in Sosua.

    If you behave yourself and don't get too drunk it's safe enough. But there are always people watching you and waiting for a chance. For disco's you can start in Avenida Venezuela, many good big disco's within 500 meters.

    It is safe to party with the locals but avoid bringing expensive stuff like the latest i-phone or jewelry. Other than that, enjoy your night :-)

    Its safe, you just must have common sense like if you were in Rio or any other big city arround the world, try to dress like locals, do not use your phone on streets, dont use jewery or expensive watch. In the Avenida Venezuela there is a bunch of clubs, also in the Colonial Zone has a lot of night life.

    And very well for you to go also to Santo Domingo. Welcome. Feel free to send me a PM if you need more specific details.

    It's not dangerous but you need to use common sense. When you go out leave most of your credit cards in the hotel safe. Do not wear expense watches or other jewelery and be careful interacting. Remember prostitution is legal in the DR and "clubs" are prime territory for these ladies to find a john. Although being "hit on" may seem flattering it is more like being stalked or hunted. Men from Europe or NA are probably not use to this role. Have fun but be safe.

    Exactly USA DOC, S.D.????, not sure what type of "authentic experience" these guys think they are going to find in SD. If they are looking to party and hit the "clubs" Sosua is the place to go.

    And here I thought Doc was asking what/where SD was.  

    Plenty of partying for young people in Santo Domingo bird!
