My time in the Dominican Republic with both Barry and Johnny has been life changing. Apart from a short cruise, I had never left the country prior to coming to the Dominican Republic with a friend to hang out with Barry and Johnny. Also, previously I had studied very little of the Spanish language. Initially, I was a little apprehensive due to not being able to speak the language well. Those apprehensions faded quickly after observing the culture and wide-spread friendliness of the people in and outside of Cabrera. What also made a big difference was the overwhelming kindness, generosity, and unselfishness that DR Escapes demonstrated to me and my friend while we were in the Dominican Republic. Barry, Johnny, and multiple friends were available 24/7 to provide suggestions when advice was needed, knowledgeable and informed answers for all our questions, but still allowed me and my friend the freedom to adventure through the country however we saw fit. In the short time span that I was with Barry and Johnny I had come to the conclusion that the Dominican Republic was certainly a place that I would enjoy calling home and am thoroughly grateful for all the new friends I made while in the Dominican Republic and the hospitality shown by DR Escapes. My gratitude cannot be fully expressed.
