I will keep that in my mind for sure. Thanks for warning
I can imagine that 5-10$ for them is like 300-500$ or more for US people.
What is wrong with Puerto Plata bay ?
Yes. Sellars Pond (Turtle Cove Landing) Provo, Turks & Caicos is a great place to get out of weather
complete with Fuel Dock and amenities for the boater..
is a very impoverished country that is currently experiencing extreme political issues in what can be described as a divided Country. There are many possibilities that a cruiser or visitor could experience numerous problems there right now that would dwarf any issues in the DR. I personally would stay out of Haiti right now but if you want to go check it out, check things thoroughly beforehand.
The city of Puerto Plata is excellent. Nothing wrong with it. The Bay in POP is different and is known for robberies, theft of property, and corruption of the Camandante who runs that port. The government
dock is concrete, and the anchorage there is wavy. My personal experience was pulling onto the dock and having four men
, 3 with M16's on my boat before I shut off the engines. I neever got off of the boat and left the next day because of the corruption and everybody wanted to make sure they got as much of me and my boat as was humanly possible. BTW.. I'm married to a Dominican.. My home is in Puerto Plata, and I still say this about the Bay. We NEVER enter that bay.
Hope this helps, and wish you safe travels.
