    Leaving DR to Western Canada

    There were a few threads on similar discussions but they all seem to be closed. Hope this one lasts a bit longer. The 3 day mandatory hotel quarantine was set to expire May 21/21. Somehow with no announcement the date on the Canadian government website was removed but it still says the...

    Returning to Canada from the DR

    All of us Canadians are probably aware of the 3 day mandatory quarantine if you fly into one of the 4 Canadian airports accepting international travellers. After a conversation with WW he suggested I post this loop hole some people may not be aware of. If you can get to any state that has a...

    Second shot in Punta Cana area.

    We received our first shots at the PUJ airport on March 6 and are due for the second shot April 6. The airport is now operating both terminals so I don't think they will be doing them at B terminal any more. Does anyone know where the second Sinovac shot can be administered in the PC/ Bavaro area.

    Good Dentist in PC, Bavaro, Higuey area.

    Does anyone know of a good dentist that is qualified in veneers and implants in the Bávaro, Higuey area. We got a quote from the clinic in PC village and they are pretty much the same price as Canada. The dentist I currently use in Bavaro is really good but stays away from the cosmetic stuff. We...

    Cigar Institute, Santiago

    A few days ago I was invited to attend a new product launch at the La Aurora cigar factory in Santiago. I was invited by a freind who owns several cigar stores. It was one of the best Dominican experiences I have had in my 13 years here. From when you are greeted at the door, to the antique...

I have tried a few different things I found on a US website but it seems to work more as a aphrodisiac than a poison. If you know of anything thing or a place in the Bavaro area please let...
