Dominican Travel Danger

When people say they never want to return home from vacation it’s usually meant in jest, but for people visiting the Dominican Republic, it is a reality.

The FBI has decided to open an investigation after six mysterious deaths have taken place in the past year, half of them last month at a resort on the island. Honeymooners and couples looking to rekindle romance aren’t the only ones in danger.

Sunday night, David Ortiz, a former player for the Boston Red Sox was shot while hanging out at a bar in the Dominican Republic. While Ortiz is expected to make a full recovery, he seems to be one of the lucky few.

If you are considering a visit to the Dominican Republic for vacation, you might want to think about going someplace a bit safer. Chernobyl is supposed to be lovely this time of year.
