    Default Is there a better Punta Cana forum?

    It seems like 90% of the traffic and posts here at Dr1 are very North Coast and Santo Domingo centric.

    Do any fellow Punta Cana condo owners or residents of use another more active forum?

    or POST on one of the many open threads ... and get response ..
    not rocket science ..

    For us , no , not really....maybe FB as already mentioned .Was thinking of starting one a few years ago ....did some research and found that many had tried ..and failed....or just left it by the wayside...wasn’t worth the time and effort perhaps....plus I had more productive things to do with my time...

    less than a month the new posters will be chased off the board from the little group of rude old timer posters

    Start threads about local issues, news
    and that same group will know more about Punta Cana issues than those living there

    Post information about local events in calendar thread
    I sure hope no third hand info or events that don't interest the masses

    Recommend local restaurants, attractions, etc.
    That would be nice as long as there are pics to support the info is not some TripAdvisor read stuff

    Share trip reports
    Trip Reports are once every other month thing on dr1. (too much arguing to be done first and foremost about matters that don't matter)
    Not being evil spirited but just the way things have become. Yes, you can still get some good info on dr1. Way too many north coasters dominating the board but if you live on the north coast a good thing. Santo Domingo, Santiago, or elsewhere just ain't a thing happening.

    Just ain't happening, are you sure???

    We have 11,228 threads and 123,762 posts right now that are not related to the North Coast.
    That's almost 1,400 more threads than in the North Coast forum.

    So yes, maybe being a little negative and mean spirited. LOL!

    Can you date those Sir.... recent posts ?
    Or is that a cumulative, life time number....including a lot of old posts/threads?

    My sense is that the Aerie Man is right ... for current stats

    The forum ebbs and flows. What is current this month is not valid next month.
    We have ALWAYS had more activity on the North Coast for obvious reasons, but that doesn't mean the other forums do not get their share of threads and posts, hence my response.

    I can pick holes all day long if I wanted, but I prefer to look at it for what it is.
    The best resource period, for info related to the Dominican Republic.
