    Bringing my car on the San Juan to Santo Domingo Ferry

    I am returning to the Caribbean, but will be mostly in Puerto Rico. I will be making frequent trips to the DR though. Can I bring my vehicle with me on the ferry, and stay with it for a few weeks? Any idea what kind of insurance or paperwork I would need?

    I need a voodoo doll.

    Either one I can just purchase, or someone who can make one. Any idea where to start looking? Doesn't need to be authentic, or cursed. It could be something from a gift shop.
