  1. I've backpacked my way around the DR and it's an overlooked country. Not generally a great place for backpackers but Cabarete and Las Terrenas are some highlights for those looking to travel this way. Yep, $25 for a single room with bathroom is about right – that's what I paid in Cabarete.

    • We totally agree. We thought is a heaven on Earth and it's really cheap there. We were wrong, Thailand is more beautiful and cheaper!
