I went to one years ago, and it was the only time my spidey senses were constantly on alert with the crowd, something that never happens to me.

Pickpockets from allover the country are already on their way to Santo Domingo. At this Carneval they steal your sneakers if you don't walk fast enough.
Leave everything in your Car. 2000 Pesos and your Car Key in the frontpocket of your pants and you are good to go.
