    Puerto Plata Stadium

    they have a baseball team: tiburones del norte. They play in the summer league. They were champions a couple of years ago. But indeed it would be good if they would have a team in the winter league again. Anyway, I am European, I go with a lot of friends to Atlantico (the football team) every...

    Police given access to Migration database

    If I sell drugs in Belgium and I get caught, I only pay a little fine and don't go in jail, If I do that in some other countries, I get put in jail or worse,....

But Dominicans and expats who work with the cruise ships, spend a...

    Jolly Roger only $399K in Sosua

    Thanks to the cruise ships yes. Most of them only go to some places (where the taxi drivers get money), some go to other places, but the main thing is that more people in pop now have money and they spend it in the other places. (like for example when I opened my bar 10 years ago, on Sunday...

    Jolly Roger only $399K in Sosua

    I never said they were upscale tourism. (just like a lot of businesses on the beach in Belgium). But the fact is that 1) you pay for the view/place and 2) the rent is most of the times more expensive in those places than in the centre of a town. It is just like in an airport, I always hear...
