The West End of the Beach 1. Fans of hiking and excursions are better to refrain from visiting Bavaro during the period from May to September as it usually rains every day during this season. Showers are rare during the rest of the year, so nothing will prevent tourists from their active excursion program.
2. August is the hottest month of the year, so the temperature rarely falls below 30C.
3. Tourists might consider taking a Spanish phrasebook with them as virtually all local people speak this language. English is also widespread in the region. In large hotel complexes and shopping centers, the staff usually speaks German and French.
4. When visiting religious landmarks, men must take off hats and caps. In the past, women were required to cover their hair with a shawl, but this rule has become a recommendation in recent years.
5. When heading to a prestigious restaurant, museum, or any of the local churches, choose your outfit carefully. The clothes shouldn’t be too bright or revealing. Visitors dressed too extravagantly simply might be not allowed to enter. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
