Please stop trying to ruin everyone's trip by creating false hysteria, it is a 3rd world country, go to Florida if you are fearful of getting sick. Making me nuts!

Bunch of hypochondriacs!!

Just so you all know, my boyfriend and I had no issues with mosquitos while in Dom Rep. We stayed at Sunscape the Beach and even ventured out in a rental car to various other parts of the country. No bites and I'm still healthy 2 weeks later. :-) Just take precautions if you feel the need and you'll be fine. We did not use bug spray or malaria medications, but he is Navy and I'm a Dept of the Army civilian and they give us shots for everything so the bugs probably didn't want to bit us for fear that they would get sick. Ha, ha.

Cheers!
