    What can I expect at a Dominican Republic all inclusive resort, and what is it like going through Punta Cana airport?

    Going through Punta Cana airport can be bliss, but be aware that you can be called over to a side area for an additional security check.

    If they do, make sure you limit the bag search to one at a time, and do not let the inspector handle your wallet or purse and watch closely what they do handle since I heard stories of security inspectors lifting money and valuables off unsuspecting travelers.

    Also, be aware that the banks here are phasing out "defaced money", so do not accept any pesos that have been written on because you will not be able to use it !

    As far as all inclusive resorts, make sure that all dishes, bowls etc. are washed well, and don't eat food from vendors. Also, drink bottled water, and avoid the hotel's tap water.
