yeah, no question, all good points.



But I work there a ton, work with lots of good people, from the bottom to the top, and none - as in not one - of my long-term contacts (in 20 years) has left the island or expressed (to me) a desire to do so.


On the other hand, I've met many locals who moved away...only to return, last year, the year before, whenever.


And I've met countless mainlanders who now live there, permanently, and they, too, choose to stay.


Everyone acknowledges the "bad" parts - but the good parts (for them) are too good.

While little cam be done about theioned act directly, no reason input imports couldnt be exempted and the insane bureaucracy reformed

Add an 11.5 percent port tax, and beer gets pricey real quick....Hacienda shut REBL down for three months while the agency updated its accounting system, according to Diaz Vazquez....Given that Hacienda agents have to be on site whenever product gets packaged or leaves the building, and that they hold the keys to open locked fermenters, timing can be critical. Multiple brewers say that they have been forced to dump spoiled batches waiting for agents to visit.

He recalled that getting the necessary permits to have a helipad in Bahia Urbana took him five years to achieve. “You know the permits process here, the bureaucracy. I received ‘no’ responses about 25 times, for whatever reason, for this and that. But I kept going. I did not take no as an answer, no matter what they said, I came back with a response. I am persistent,” Benítez said
