Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic has been a major Spring Destination for college students way for at least a decade, so we’re stoked to be able to tell you about all the debauchery you can have over in the DR. Just know this: I personally know multiple people from different trips who have gotten seriously ill from the food, water, or a combination of the three. Also, before we start talking about the fun stuff, you should also be aware that the Dominican Republic is not a safe place. On the resorts you’ll be fine, but once you step off the property you become a target–especially for drugs. Seriously, do not risk buying or using drugs on your visit there as they have an insanely strict policy regarding narcotics.
Now for the good. It’s trashy as hell. The rum flows like water, students from all over come because of the outstanding weather, and most importantly you don’t have to leave the poolside bar to use the bathroom.
