    Depending upon where you are going, have you considered a laptop and Skype? In Cabarete for example, I can think of four free wi-fi networks on the beachfront alone. I'd guess that most tourist areas now have open wi-fi networks.

    Free calls to other Skype users anywhere in the world is certainly the cheapest.

    Skype to skype calls aren't cheap, they are free. Both must be using computer.

    Thumbs up Good value call

    Hi,

    You can also try the YAK system (10-15-945...). Some of my friends call me for a very few amount of money. Between 20 and 40 cents a minute.

    Indeed, but the software is free too.

    You can call landlines from Skype on a PC too. US$0.021 per minute from Dom Rep to Canada. Landline quality is now pretty good (I've phoned DR laptop to UK landline many times). Skype in DR to a DR mobile however, is awful quality. Not tried calling a mobile elsewhere.

Keep in mind if you are calling a cellphone you'll get less time on your cards.

    Default rates

    try 10 10 967 and then the number you want 011 + country code + phone number.
    Canada and USA rates are .02 cents per minute

    or these calling card rates Dominican Rep. Calling Cards. Calls to Dominican Rep. from Canada. Lowest Rates.
