Did a quick check of two week AI resort prices, primarily Playa Dorada for off season (July-August) from Toronto. Discounts up to 35% are available. As low as $1375 Canadian per person, double occupancy. That equates to $1008 US dollars at current exchange rates and includes airfare.

some people like to show off or brag about their spending power .....they are called " Big" mouths .......Personally I was here for two weeks in April and I would think I spent about $2000 for my vacation and enjoyed it immensely
some people wear Christian Louboutin shoes, and some people wear crocs. Life is full of choices. Enjoy yours!

I wouldn't pay anything for most of the men's shoes in his collection. They are some ugly shoes there. I prefer a quality shoe with more functionality, and of course a great fit. Sioux shoes do the job for me. https://www.watkinsonsshoes.com/mens-c3/sioux-m12 I have some Auturo Calle from Colombia that are really nice looking and good quality as well.

I think US$ 2000 for a week is very doable. Flight to SDQ from somewhere like New York, you could get this for say US$ 500 return? Nice apartment in Las Terrenas will be US$ 130 a night. You can self cater for breakfast and lunch and have dinner out, I think you'd do this comfortably for US$ 2000. Especially if this is your budget per person.

The cheap hotels that charge US$ 50 a night are usually full of tourists, as are the Spirit and Frontier flights. So clearly there is a lot of demand for these cheapo vacations.

as I indicated Mr Bob, life is full of choices. Ferragamo is my second favorite shoe. Some men love sports cars, my vice is shoes.

I've got some very comfortable heels that I bought for US$ 30 online, took them to a shoe mender and got them to put a red sole on them. Much much more comfortable than the real thing, and because I am someone who could afford the real thing, everyone thinks they are Louboutins.

But we digress and should return to talking about whether you can vacation in DR for US$ 2000 for a week before we get told off.

I used to wear Ferragamo shoes in DR before I moved to US, here I wear Red Wings and Caterpillar boots 🤒
Don't tell nobody I never bought the Ferragamo shoes my cousing Sawen donated to me he is a rich business man in SD.

I have a few myself, I like vintage watches.
Still have my Seiko issue Mickey Mouse watch. Around 40 years old now. I think Timex made a version a long time ago. The Seiko is much better quality. Walking around the DR streets I wear a ratty old Timex Ironman. An older Rolex Submariner is on my wish list.

My favourite shoes are my Reikers. Made in Germany . Good looking dress shoes, light weight, and great for hot climates. They can be expensive but I buy them on sale. A woman once told me women notice men who wear nice shoes. She was right.
