My boyfriend and I, along with another couple, are going to La Romana in two weeks. (so excited, I'm already packed!)
There are a few things that I wanted to find out before we go..
Health risks? I've heard about the water and have been advised to drink bottled water only, but what about the ice cubes they use in the drinks? What are the chances of getting sick from a frozen drink?
I am also aware that malaria is a potential risk and plan on bringing bug spray, but what meds, vaccines, preventatives are necessary?
We are all in our mid twenties and healthy as can be, but agree that we had better be safe than sorry...
I have packed clorox wipes and antibacterial hand gel; is there anything else I should bring for sterilizing purposes?
