    Government invests RD$3 billion to refurbish beaches and organize vendors

    Unfortunately, "organizing the vendors", is government speak for turning them into taxpayers.

    Where to buy antidecubitus mattress?

    There is a chain of surgical supply stores here. Farmaconal. I don't know where they are in the capitol, but you should be able to find what you need.

    That is a very flattering photo of Pueblito, in between Playa Dorada and Costa Dorada. There is a wonderful French restaurant right on the beach there. Petit Francois is the name IIRC.

    Any advice on safe parking in zona colonial??

    Traffic police don't chase or shoot anyone. If you drive here frequently, sooner or later you will come across a proper checkpoint. Traffic cones, riflemen w/M16's, lots of National police presence. Be sure to stop, these guys mean business!

    When the traffic police wave at me from the side of the road, I always wave back. I never stop unless an agent physically gets in the roadway and forces me to stop. Welcome to Paradise!!

    I found This Hard to Believe

    No, where she lives and works, it's close to impossible, that she has never seen a boat. Is this the first time that you will meet her?

    It is close to impossible, to live and work in the Punta Cana area, and never to have seen a boat!
