Haiti may be on the same island but it's not the Dominican!! Dominicans are very friendly and you will love it there!

Hi Chauncey!

The Haitians are taking part in "elections" and things are more tense than usual. You should be fine on most of the DR resorts. I found that the following two local Dominican Newspapers offer up to date information about many many things that the average visitor might find interesting. I sure did!

Google search for Dominican Today and / or The Dominican Sun. The latter has a forum that I could not pull myself away from.

It is a big island and there are borders just like between any two countries. You will be safe. Put it this way...would you be scared to go to California if Mexico was at war? Or to New York if Canada was at war?

No, because it is exactly what you said - a war in Haiti, not the DR. Don't worry! The boarder is still almost 2 hours from Cabarete.

IT'S NOT A WAR! Haiti is and has been very volatile for years so why the uproar all of a sudden? It's a very unstable nation and illegal Haitian immigration to the DR is a huge problem. Read the papers (an indicated above) before posting. It's very misleading.
