    I'm just playing devil's advocate here...

    You can't legally visit for a "couple of months" so what makes you think you can find a person willing to rent to an "illegal" and risk getting themselves in trouble?

    Now granted the likelihood of any of that happening is remote, but change has to start somewhere. What makes you believe that it's ok for you to come here and break the law just because you want to and potentially reduce the chance (albeit temporarily) for a resident to rent that same space?

    And because they still will have the overstay fine at the airport until at least sometime next year.

    A little harsh! Plenty of people come and stay for that length of time over and over.

    My point being...just because you "can" do something, doesn't make it "alright" to do it. Morality and ethics is a murky subject for some.

    Granted, I'm picking on Irina1. Her coming here and staying as long as she wants doesn't affect me at all. It's just with all the uproar about visitor normalization I thought I'd bring to the forefront the hypocrisy of the complaints about that process and the "do whatever you can get away with attitude" that brought it about in the first place.

    At some point one has to choose to be a part of the solution or remain the problem.

    I don't feel there is too much wrong with either my ethics or my morals thanks. The government doesn't seem to be bothered by tourists coming for a couple of months or they wouldn't simply charge an overstay fee, they would ban you from re-entering the DR.

    And you've made your choice Black Dog, fair enough.
