    It is common knowledge that the DR has pretty high crime rates compared to other nations:

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/06/16/3454853/military-takes-to-the-streets.html

    Street crime and a rising murder rates have become the No. 1 concern for residents, according to polls.

    In the past 20 years, the murder rate has nearly doubled to 25 homicides per 100,000 residents, a rate more than five times higher that of the United States. Robberies and thefts have also increased.

    In recent months, motorcycle-riding thieves, working in tandem, have carried out brazen armed attacks at busy intersections, robbing drivers and passengers of the ubiquitous private shared taxis. The crimes prompted the U.S. Embassy to warn citizens and visitors to “exercise extreme caution.”

    Citizens and elected officials have called for any means necessary, including using the armed forces, to improve safety.

    As a result, camouflaged soldiers, wielding machine guns, are walking the sidewalks of residential neighborhoods, standing by at busy intersections and stationed at a makeshift camp in the middle of a popular public park.

    “I’m in favor of having the soldiers here because the criminality is reaching a point where something needs to be done,” said Máximo Jiménez Mella, 47, who added that two family members have been mugged in the past year. “Obviously, the police alone are not enough.”

    I also love the Dominican Republic.   Laughing

    I usually visit in December (when the winter baseball league begins).  

    Every Tuesday and Thursday, Air Havana flies from Santo Domingo to Havana, Cuba. Quite a few Americans take a risk and travel to Cuba despite the embargo.  I visited Cuba once and the hotels and food were not as good as the DR.

    No it doesn't.  Unless you count pitching as offense.
