    Default need recomendations

    Would like to plan a trip to the DR for me and my girlfriend
    in about 3 weeks.
    Looking for a nice couples place, we don't have kids so adult
    places would probably suit us. There are a lot of
    all inclusive places but it's hard to figure out what the
    best deal and location would be. Looking for some insight.

    I'm hoping to stay 3 nights. Would like to visit natural
    wonders, significant historical places and good places to
    mingle and meet people.

    It's a big island. Which airport do you fly into?

    The choices are between Puerto Plata or Santo Domingo.
    I think I'm going for Santo Domingo.

    I have some TWA tickets I have to use soon, so I'm pretty
    unprepared. I think I'm going to head to a book store and
    get one of those travel books.

    I'm pretty much in the dark as far as what cities are north
    or south and what attractions are associated with each. From
    postings I have read the Jarabacoa and Constanza places sound
    interesting for a visit or drive. Something about amber mines.
    If this is in the vicinity of Santo Domingo I will target that
    as my point of entry. It also seems that the all inclusive places
    would be kinda detached from the native flavor and people so now
    I'm rethinking that and trying to get a feel for decent but costly lodging.

    You have probably heard such ignorance on this board countless time, But I haven't find it in the archives so far.

    Well, well well three days and a hole county to look at?

    If you go to Santo Domingo, OK - but I believe you are better of in Puerto Plata! The reasons: You are asking for amber mines, they are close to PP! (At least the best sites!) Constanza is in the middle of the country in the mountains - very interesting place, but do you realy have the time to get there??? Puerto Plata is intersting and has a lot of beaches and other things to see arround it and - there are some nice hotels in the all incl. resort of Playa Dorada (guess you have noticed it on this board!)

    If you chose to extend your stay, there are more things to visit, but 3 days is sort of turnarround at the airport!

    Pick up Sean Harvey's Rough Guide to the DR. I think that should help you. And I'm sure others on the board will give you some suggestions as well!
