    i feel badly for them, but to jump into a rental car at night, and set off on a five hour drive in a country with which you have no familiarity, is nuts.

    That is an expensive lesson learned .. People who got NO business renting a Car, cause they are clueless, and especially NOT Driving at Night ..
    People with 20 + years experience in the DR would not DARE make that drive at night.. WT* were they thinking ?

    my question, exactly. they look to me like some hayseeds who are not exactly world travellers, and who have no idea how to function outside of Boise. i mean, why would they want to be on some rural road at 10 pm, on their first night in a new country...

    For sure these bumpkins didn't realize they weren't in Kansas anymore, however it's still bad press and I think that's the point.

    Flying into PUJ for a Puerto Plata vacation was the first mistake.

    well, you might be surprised. just like jd426, yourself, and i think it was a nutty idea, a lot of people in their hometown are asking the same question about WTF were they thinking. they might even be saying that they are lucky to be alive.
