As soon as the plane lands in The Dominican Republic and the doors open, you will know you are in the Caribbean by the wonderful smell of the heat and humidity.
The first stop is immigration where you show your passport (ID), and tourist visa. Have these ready, it'll save a lot of time. Those who do not have them (tourist visa) supplied in advance of their arrival in the DR must purchase them for $10 US and fill out the form prior to going through immigration.
After going through immigration, get your luggage, and then head out of the airport past customs, they will likely not stop you, but if they do cooperate with them. Then look for someone holding a sign with your Tour operator's name on it and they will direct you to your bus.
Airport porters will try and carry your luggage for you - a firm "NO Gracias" a couple of times will dissuade them. If you do allow them to carry your luggage, keep tabs on it and make sure you see it loaded on your bus. $2 per bag is a generous tip for their service.
