Our company offered a solution to privately fly guests from the International Airport to the resort in 20 minutes safely for a reasonable price of $200 US but they ignored their problem!

Swinger resorts don’t do well here.

Here’s what’s going on in the Dominican Republic: it’s the same old double standard. The president and the authorities supposedly knew what the hotel was all about when they gave the green light for its construction.

Of course, they still haven’t explained the “real reasons” why it closed. But given the country’s history on this issue, it could well have been because they don’t like the idea of nudism and swinging.

I remember that years ago, the singer Miley Cyrus couldn’t perform at the Olympic Stadium in Santo Domingo because the “conservatives” and the Church considered her concert to be vulgar and offensive to good taste. Can you believe it?

Because of things like this, this country will continue to stagnate or move at a snail’s pace, despite the inflated figures of 10 million visitors a year, being a paradise for foreign investment, etc.
