Can I pay in dollars?
Most places do in fact let you pay in US dollars. However, you may not always get the best exchange rate. You can generally get the best exchange rates by withdrawing cash in the local currency from an ATM machine. If you prefer to bring dollars and exchange them in Punta Cana, your hotel will probably have a better rate than most shops and restaurants.
How do I call home from the Dominican Republic?
Even though you’re on vacation, you’ll still be thinking about your loved ones who weren’t fortunate enough to join you in paradise. At some point, nostalgia and sentiments overcome the desire to be sitting on the beach with a cocktail in your hand. That’s when you decide it’s time to call home. But how? While many solutions are available, some are more expensive than others. Whether you call directly from the hotel or purchase a calling card, make sure you check the rates before you make any purchase or phone call. You can also check your provider’s rates for international roaming or, if you have a smartphone, install a VOIP program such as Skype, Whatsapp, Line2 or Tango.
