Personal Safety

Visitors to the Dominican Republic, including to local resort areas, should carefully assess the potential risk of recreational activities.   

Some of the swimming areas at popular beaches around the Dominican Republic are subject to dangerous undertows. 

Many beaches lack life guards and/or warnings of unsafe conditions.

Visitors are cautioned not to swim alone, particularly at isolated beaches.  

Tap water is unsafe to drink and should be avoided.  Bottled water and beverages are safe.

Medical Services

Outside the capital, emergency services range from extremely limited to nonexistent.  Blood supplies at both public and private hospitals are often limited, and not all facilities have blood on hand even for emergencies. 

Many medical facilities throughout the country do not have staff members who speak or understand English.
