Recently I saw the graphic/pic above in one of my Sosua/cabarete Facebook groups I am a member of. It got 500 likes. All of the facebook commenters were pointing out the fact that the capital (Santo Domingo) is overcrowded, poor and uneducated, and the infrastructure sucks.

I would like to make the following observations/points that I believe from my own experience are true:

It does not matter where you want to go in Santo Domingo: bank on an hour in the taxi or uber to get there. I could not go anywhere without having a good stretch of stop-and-go traffic jamming things up. And the exhaust starts to seep in the windows. The whole thing was really discouraging quite frankly.
