I am a Country Director of a non-profit organization that also hosts many college interns and visitors yearly, and I always highly recommend this guidebook to my visitors who come to work and embrace the real Dominican Republic.
Thanks to the book, we found a gem of a breakfast place, Claro, which we would have never otherwise found; it is off the main street, but down a driveway and not clearly marked at all. The staff were friendly and laid-back, and the food was delicious. We only found it on our last day, but some friends we made there told us that they went back every morning for the rest of their trip. The guide was full of similar suggestions on where to get the best local food and the most complete Dominican experience.
It of course includes all the normal tourist attractions, but if you are looking for a guide that will challenge you to get outside your comfort zone and explore all that the Dominican Republic has to offer, then this is the guide for you.
This book had AMAZING recommendations. I fell in love with so many of the places recommended by this book. We actually changed our plans to stay longer at these places.

It has a lot of info but was looking for something with a little more info on the area I will be visiting.Published on July 13, 2014 by Ingrid Micari
Love it. You really get the "local's view." Caplan and Tuider do a terrific job of painting the picture and guiding you where you really want to go.Published on June 10, 2014 by kalli

I can't speak to the other sections, but I found the Santo Domingo segment really useful for cultural and political history. Read morePublished on July 31, 2013 by Roni Meyers
This guide was incredibly helpful and thoughtfully done. We spent two weeks in Santo Domingo and Samana, and we used this guide every day. Read morePublished on July 15, 2013 by Jackie
We went to the DR to spend a week mostly diving, but also visiting. We rented a car and the first thing I noted is that the guide has no maps. I was frustrated. Read morePublished on July 14, 2013 by Hector R. Torres
