    Coronavirus - In the DR

    Unfortunately it is very true...my spouse had some family members travel back to SDQ and basically described exactly what is in the photo. Maybe certain days are worse than others. One of the reasons my going back is on hold and spouse is still deciding. He was anxious to get back but then...

    Cultural question related to social status

    I know many Dominicans who could care less about social standing, etc... They work hard, buy what they can afford and put away for tomorrow. Then there is the other side. Spend/borrow every last dime to impress whomever. Their mindset is on today only not the future. This does happen in any...

    JetBlue leads the restart of flights to the Dominican Republic

    When will DR open for International travel??????

    Spouse had a conversation with some friends in NYC, 2 of whom are connected to the DR Consulate. Was told July is highly unlikely, more like Aug or Sept. But there are so many "rumors" flying around who knows. I even doubt at times the DR government knows from one day to the next. We all know...

    When will DR open for International travel??????

    As I have said in other posts, I am a DR citizen. We have been waiting for some type of update on flights.etc… Right now I am looking towards late Sept early Oct coming back. At that this point nothing is clear (government, etc..). IMHO why go from one bad situation (here in USA) to another (DR).
