What foods should we avoid? Any food including salads and any ice and drinks will ALL be prepared with purified water and should not avoided. Usually too much sun, alcohol and coconut drinks (coconut milk/ water is an excellent laxative), and food are the culprit for stomach issues.
Cooked food should always be safe, but must be well cooked. Be aware that all food at the resorts is safe to eat , (even the lettuce , raw fruit, and salads ). Most hotels have strict quality control procedures in place regarding food, drink and the cleanliness of the resort.

Mama Juana (or Mamajuana ) is a drink from the Dominican Republic that is concocted by allowing rum , red wine , and honey to soak in a bottle with tree bark and herbs. The taste is similar to port wine and the color is a deep red.
In addition to rum (the drink par excellence countrywide) and the well-known cocktails such as the piña colada or daiquiri, you should also try different mixed drinks, with and without alcohol, which are very representative of this Caribbean country.
