I've spent the past couple of days perusing the forums on dr1.com and came across several posts highlighting the crime against tourists in all the cities frequented by them. I noticed the word "dangerous" used by several posters to describe the situation and incidents. My gf and I are planning on spending a month in Cabarete but are now concerned about our safety after reading all that stuff. Is the situation really that bad for tourists? Are there any specific areas we should avoid in Cabarete, Sosua and Puerto Plata? Also, how is the security at Ocean Dream condos? Or should we consider an AI?
Thanks to all, in advance, for taking some time out to reply. Appreciate it :-)
