Travelling in January always comes with it's own set of risks and challenges but I was wondering if anyone can offer an insight as to what my wife and I can expect in terms of going to Puerto Plata in what generally is off season.
Given that the Dominican Republic is very much tourist driven now do you notice the difference during the low seasons?
If so can anyone comment on how this affects the Hotels, particularly Blue Bay Villas? I've read great things about the staff teams there. Can we expect to have the same staff in January as other get during peak season? Generally speaking how busy is Puerto Plata (and obviously BBV) at the end of January?
Again having done a bit of research (and keeping a close eye B0bk's weather post) its fair to say the weather wont be much of an issue (keeping in mind that Scotland and the UK in January is grim to say the least) but can anyone provide an insight into the weather patterns in January? No matter what it's surely going to be better than home.
Do the same excursions run all year round or are there any that are season as such?
I look forward to hearing any information anyone can give me.
Both the wife and I are really looking forward to getting our holiday started and while its still ages away it's nice to get an idea of what we are going to.
