I would really appreciate your suggestions on how to split up 10 days in DR in March.
Where to go, where to stay, what to see, what to eat and where in DR?
Thank you in advance!

I just spent an incredible week in Haiti. Our itinerary was:
Port-au-Prince - Mirebalais - St. Marc / Cote des Arcadins - Furcy - Seguin - Port-au-Prince.
I highly recommend the hike to Seguin. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever done. For a blog post about our trip, check out: http://www.atlasworkshops.com/a-haitian-road-trip-part-one-boston-to-port-au-prince-with-a-jiko/
It's been a few months since we announced impending changes to Thorn Tree, so it's time we gave you an update.
There's been a team of developers and designers working away on a new version for a little while now. Here's the headlines:
We hope to launch a beta version in February 2014. This is not an iron-clad guarantee, but it's where we're aiming for at the moment. We'll keep you updated if this changes.
The new Thorn Tree beta will include the return of private messages. As we've said over this past year, the mods have missed them too – party time.
What will the new Thorn Tree look like?
It will contain the same features and a similar page layout, tweaked to look a bit more 2014, not 2006. It... more »

Just wanted to share my posts about how take two bus lines between Port au Prince and Les Cayes - Transport Chic and Capital Coach: http://zwazoyo.blogspot.com/search/label/bus . Both are very easy and inexpensive, though the Port au Prince Transport Chic station might be intimidating for those new to Haiti. Stay tuned for a post about taking Caribe Tours to the Dominican Republic.

I'm a Dutch traveler , thinking of going soon to the Caribean from either New York or Chicago..
I have plenty of time , and want to see as much of the Caribean as possible the cheapest possible way;
My main question is ;
Where to start if I would like to see Puerto Rico , Dominican/Haiti , Jamaica , and as much of the islands as possible going south towards Trinidad /Tobago.., probably end up aking the ferry to Venezuela
Is there a cheap one way flight into the region , from where it's best to start , and then continue in a one way pattern going south ? Are there local cheap flights in between the islands , and with which companies?
If you have traveled the region before and have any useful info , let me know!
Thanks a lot

Me and my girlfriend have finally decided to go on a vacation to the caribbean, and the islands Saint lucia and Barbados. The trip will be about 14 days and we are womdering.. 1. Good places to stay? 2. Daily budget?
We have so far only booked the ticket from here to Saint Lucia and the hometicket from Barbados home, so we havn't really fully planed how many days on each island we should be on...
Is 2000USD enough for per person on this kind of vacation? We are only looking for nice views and a location to relax and to just be..

This weekend I am going to the North Coast of DR for the first time. I live and work in Cap-Haitien, Haiti so this is a quick 3-night trip.
I'm looking for a cheap, hopefully not crummy place to stay on the North Coast. I can bring a hammock and camp if that is an option too. Not particularly interested in being in crowds nor can I afford more than $25-$30 a night. It's also helpful if they take credit cards.
Away from the coast is good too! I heard there are motorcycles to rent in some places so maybe I could do an overnight in the mountains.
Any info is helpful!
What started out as a quick hop to an island is turning into a full blown trip for my girlfriend and I at the end of the month. We have 5 nights. I was thinking about spending two of them in Tobago and getting a rental to run around the beaches. We're wanting to hit the beaches during the day and hoping for some night life in the form of fun music etc. What would you recommend?
