Travelling and Sailing to the Dominican Republic
Hey guys, I need your help on something.
It seems that the hysteria of the earthquake in Haiti is starting to have people second guess their visit to the Dominican Republic. Whether you are sailing or flying there, the DR has in no way been affected and its people want you to know this. I've spoken to several of my DR friends over the weekend and they are concerned that people are entertaining on cancelling their vacation. There is absolutely no reason for this. Take a look at Google Earth or any map and you'll see how far Port-Au-Prince is from the DR.
As you know the DR is being intrumental in helping Haiti through this tragedy and cancelling your trip and not spending your dollars will not help the situation. The DR has not been immune to the world recession and missing out on this tourism season would not be good.
I'm heading out there next month and would never think of cancelling and missing out on some R&R.
Please help spread the word.
