Dominican Republic or Cuba?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
did villas dorada many years ago and it was very nice - have been looking at the brochures recently and it sounds about the same. there is a great golf course closeby and you can travel between resorts. a bit of a walk to the beach as it is a large resort but direct access.
where are you flying out of? did cuba 3 times out of toronto, same resort and had a great time -- staff were geared to making sure everyone had a good time. cant get there from the west coast without the extra flight. as with any vacation you take YOU with you so . . .
have recommended cuba to friends who have gone to veradero they thought the blau was awesome. what are you looking for--e.g. type of vacation, hookup? sports? local sights? bakeonthebeach? cuba is the home of dance in my mind but you cant make a mistake with any latin destination. especially these two choices.
also did mexico both oceans DR & Cuba leave it in the dust in my mind

It's not really difficult to travel to Cuba. Just go there from another country. The Cuban immigration people won't stamp your passport. Or as in my case it's possible to crew on a Canadian's boat or maybe a boat from Austrailia, France, Germany etc. Take money so you don't use plastic, which can be traced.

Cuba is about 6,000,000 times better than the DR. I love stepping back in time in Cuba, and the lack of Americanization is refreshing. Not as much sanky panky as the DR too...as a single woman, that's nice to know there aren't going to be 6 different men, telling you how much they love you, on every corner you turn. I've been to Dr four times (Santiago, Sousa, Puerto Plata), and will be heading to Cuba for my 5th time (in less than two years!) in September. I just love it there.

Cuba is amazing, visit Habana, Matanzas (Varadero/Cuevas de Bellamar), Pinar del Rio (Cuevas de Pinar Del Rio)
so much one can do - won't kill your wallet if you do your h/w

DR or Cuba ? That question is a no brainer,... it's without doubt Cuba by a mile.

I've been to both DR 3 times and Cuba ....well I lost count on how many times it's actualy been,..but it's close to 20 times I'm sure. + on a few of those trips I stayed for several months...been everywhere on that island and know it like the back of my hand,....speak spanish fluently and know many Cubans and some for over 10 years,...

Safest, nicest country in the world,..without corrupt police and without any kind of crime ,..... organized and street crime....non existant ! no hassles, no hustlers, no drugs.
Just friendly honest people, good wheater, cheap for almost everything....and a more just, and equal society than most without street rampant poverty and also without the few 1% of super rich oligarchs who would own everything and exploit the masses of poor peasants......here at least everybody is poor equal,....luxuries they don't have, but the nessessities of life is provided by their benevolent government free of charge,..Education, health etc.... CUBA SI all the way,...and Viva Fidel !

Hi, I have been to both destinations. Once to Dominican and twice to Cuba. Of the two, I LOVE CUBA! The beaches, and the people. Now the food is not the best, but you won't go hungry. ahhhh can't wait to get back there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
