Find the Right Time to Go
If you can, try to plan your trip between April and December to enjoy the perks of visiting during the low season. Since tourist numbers are usually down at this time of year, hotels and airlines are more likely to offer special all-inclusive deals that help you enjoy your trip at a lower cost.
Think About Your Wardrobe Choices
Although you want to be comfortable while you travel, you should also pack a few stylish pieces of clothing so you can blend in with the locals. Dominicans love clothing and like to dress nicely. You do not need to wear an entire outfit of designer clothing, but you should try to look put-together while you travel.
Enjoy Your Food the Dominican Way
In the Dominican Republic, lunch is a big affair that can last for about two hours. If you are joining a family for a meal, you should bring a small gift. Do not start to eat until the host or hostess says, “buen provecho.” Make an effort to keep your elbows off the table. Rice, beans, and meat are popular types of food in the country so be prepared to see them on a lot of menus. Whenever you are finished eating, you should set your knife and fork across your plate to show that you are done.
