I have visited the DR a couple of times before or a short period of time but will in a few weeks be staying for 6 months. I know already that the water is a no-no, I know not to drink it and clean my teeth in it and the such, but the family I will be staying with has a river outside their house. They live in Los Quermados, and the river is the river Uni- or yuni (not too sure of the exact spelling) Is this river safe for to even touch. I cant swim soo I will not be getting my face or full body in the river buyt I would like to know if I can even paddle with my feet in it???
