Are you serious?

It isn't as widespread of an issue as you are making it out to be. The same issue exists in Cuba too, otherwise there would be no reason for Canada and Cuba to sign an anti-child prostitution agreement.





The same in Colombia, Mexico, and just about anywhere in Latin America where tourism is big business. A small portion of the tourists aren't there mainly for visiting the historic sights, getting to know the culture or enjoying the beach.

To paint it as if they make up the bulk of the tourists or that those activities dominate the industry or that it is the norm in the countries involved is plain simply to lie and puts in serious question your integrity.

This guy is just another DR hater, that disguises his hate with a question that is mostly a statement of something HE claims DR dosent have. But DR does has all that and even better. DR architecture its actually older than Havana and Cartagena, and has early architecture non existent in the other 2 places. Also SD is less gentrified and has a more quaint feeling that the other 2.

DR has a lots of haters in the Caribbean because its dominating the tourism market and capturing all the investment.

Haters gonna hate.

Does anyone really have hard feelings towards the DR other than Puerto Rico and Haiti though?

It seems Cuba and DR have a pretty good relationship with each other outside of politics. Also, I've heard far more people from the Anglo Caribbean hate on Haiti than the DR(which is still quite unfortunate.)

Also, Dominican culture and music has really grown through many other parts of Latin America to the point where even Argentines have their own version of merengue called Cuarteto:

Aside from trolls on the Internet, I don't really see the DR being hated on more than Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti, or Puerto Rico as far as the Caribbean goes. Heck, I have some Trini friends who would practically kill you for associating them with Jamaica.

Then again, in the gaming community, there's apparently a ton of anti-Peruvian sentiment but I don't think people in the Americas feel strongly about Peruvians like that except maybe for Chile. Same rules apply I guess.

I used to live in a Dominican neighborhood in the Northeast.....good people.

I suspected so, although there are immigration concerns in PR.

They like to act like its a problem not to associate themselves with Jamaicans, but Trinis love Jamaican culture.

Plus many people do pick up Trinis Caribbean accent but never mistake them for Jamaican.

Why do you associate those countries?
Nothing to do, just like associating the US with Liberia.

I see you have Macao listed as your location, AKA Punta Cana.
Before the resorts, nobody visited there...except me.
Try Santiago, always enjoyed it more than SD.
