Driving vacation recommendations

We are used to staying at a resort but renting a car in Puerto Rico and driving around to see the sights, eating out, etc. Is this safe to do in the Dominican? Any recommendations about best areas/places to avoid?

Puerto Rico or Puerto Plata?

Puerto Plata: Driving around in the D.R. is not fun, not a recommendable thing. Stay in Cabarete where you can walk most anywhere to eat/drink out and beach/pool, etc. Close to POP and good excursions are nearby also.

Not sure he has picked a place yet. BUT in any event do not rent a car, especially the first time here. Rely on cabs and excursions to get out and about.
