I have read about this but want to know if for a fact is it true,
Cannot i not hold hands or kiss my GF in public?

What are the consequences, if any

They arrest everyone for holding hands in Sosua.
But I think owning a cabaña is a good business

JAJAJAJA.
I read this in more than one source. I was dead serious. Here are a couple of examples of what i came across

"The Dominican Republic is a Christian country with prominent Catholic and evangelical communities.
Public displays of affection (such as hand-holding or kissing) between opposite or same-sex couples are uncommon"

"Yes, kissing in public is illegal in the Dominican Republic, when I refer to “kissing” I don’t mean small kisses or greetings, but rather prolonged kisses.
A couple displaying an intimate encounter in a public space may be subject to sanction if discovered by authorities".

A friend of mine was caught canoodling with her boyfriend in front of the Basilica in Higuey. They were actually dragged over to the police station and threatened with arrest. The police were terribly offended and the couple were warned to get out of town and not come back anytime soon.
But then again...that was about twenty five years ago.
Things have probably changed since then.
