PR is many years ahead of the Dominican Republic.

You obviously are not intimately familiar with PR or the Dominican Republic if you are going to make that sweeping statement.

DR certainly has it's charms and advantages. However, PR has theirs as well. We are part of the USA. That alone is a huge factor.

Technologically speaking we are on par with any state in the union.

Yes, there are plenty of PR living in the DR. Many retirees, especially.

Also many Dominicans who were born in PR and who have returned with their families to the DR. There are many Dominicans of Puerto rican descent who largely settled in the Eastern portion of the island in the early part of the 20 century. Especially Higuey.

After Europeans. PR's bring the most significant amount of tourist dollars to the island nation of the Dominican Republic. PR's are attracted by the short plain ride and good package deals for quick 4 day weekends or sometimes more on DR's beautiful and all inclusive beach resorts. A totally diffrent tourist formula then Puerto Rico's model.

DR has many advantages over PR in tourism. Although PR has its pluses over DR as well in the tourist scene. We offer every kind of sport and vacation for every budget and have some "fantastic scenery" and well maintained roads especially if one wants to explore the island and not relegate themselves to staying in a complex for much of their visit as one would do in the DR.

Please people there is a small amount of Rican's in DR. There is a lot of poverty in DR you must stay in the tourist area. You do have a good time to party but you must come to grip. Nothing personal but guarding "la isla del encanto" The growing population is our brothers "Los Haitianos que dies Los vendiga" I hope that DR welcomes the Haitian people like Puerto Rico has. love and peace like god said there must be in earth.

There is 10 thousands Ricans only In All Dominican republic .I guess they prefer Miami and new-york.Com pare this number to 2000.000 millions Haitians illegals spread around the country.

Dominican republic is the first country in all the Americas where Spanish settled .But they all left for the gold mines of Mexico.

Dominican republic is the only country in the world that allowed Jewish refuggee migrants of WW2 to settle.

Canada ,USA,Holland,Australia,all the today pro Israel countries of today,refused to accept Jewish refugees menaced of extermination I'm concentration camp.

The Dominican government even gave them free land and they became successful and wealthy ,but after 2 generation they all left to California .

Same with the Japanese .they came dearth poor .They work as farmer after the second world war.but when they get wealthy they left.

But Haitians come and stay and they don't get any richer

Something keep that country poor so immigrant only passing.

Listen everyone! The reason why puertoricans don't like Dominicans is because us puertoricans get more attention from the music industry, beautiful woman and men, famous celebrities, etc. I work with a Dominican chic that swears she's all that and really the chic is busted! I have an hour glass shape and good hair and pretty in the face , so I'm not going to lie I do get attention naturally. From my 29 years of life I always noticed that Dominicans try to act like they are better than someone and their not! I'm not friendly with the girl at work and she got an attitude with me all the time and she does not want it with me trust me! They don't like us but always trying to be like us or sleep with us. Look at the PR parade in NYC and then look at the DR parade so ha! And just for the record my family had bodegas and liquor stores and we are not Dominican we just moved on to big and better things

First of all..yes there are many Puerto Ricans there, many have retired there cause you can live in a 3 bedroom 2 bath nice house in a good neighborhood for US$300 a month , thing you cant do in the US with a Social security check of US$2,000 plus all the bills, and second Dominicans people enjoy people from all over, In Punta Cana, sousa, Puerto plata, there are even Russian, germans, French communities..and its easy to move, the consulate and embassy can get you the information and ID you need to show you are moving there, its so easy.
