    Medellin

I find the mansion girls hotter than the BB girls. Food is definitely better in MDE & you can actually drink the water without any concerns like the DR. No rip off taxi rates in MDE too.
    Cool. Thanks for the feedback.

    I guess Medellin is the winner. Thanks for the feedback.

    I visited both, Medellin Mansion trip was a long time ago.

    I have compared both in 2010, http://www.internationalsexguide.inf...lata&p=1061244#post1061244.

    Except of arrival of Uber there was no significant change at BB.

I understand Uber has found its way to Puerto Plata.
    First time at BB's. Second time in D. R. As I was in Sosua last year for a week with friends.

    Jenny's (the supermarket in Costambar) has a vehicle for rent. Unfortunately I do not know any of the details, rates, etc.

    Still, I can only imagine that renting from "Papi Chulo" Rental Cars would be worse. Budget in US was very helpful, and VISA credit card service insurance covered me as well. Like I said, I turned it in at the airport, initiated paperwork, got back home, and finished the process at home.

    I'd rather argue with a US representative than a Dominican.

    P.S.
    To all others: always buy the extra insurance. A gringo driving in the DR is risky business for a number of reasons. Driving is convenient, but if I can avoid it, I usually do.
    I always buy full insurance when I rent a car even though my credit card covers comprehensive coverage up to $25,000. The cost of insurance tend double up the cost of renting but I have peace of mind going anywhere.

    Renting a car has definite advantages. Pick up a girl anywhere, not just in Sosua.

My experience is that whenever you call the US number those people put you on hold and call the owner in Santo Domingo. When I wrecked the car, US Budget had nothing to do with it. Santo Domingo Budget never sent the paperwork to American Express so the car never got paid for. These days if you refuse their insurance in DR they will not rent the car to you. If you call and complain to the US corporate they will tell you there is nothing they can do about it. Been there done that. That is why me and my friends no longer rent there.

    Excellent Trip Report

Thank you to those who helped me- I hope this at least entertains you and at most helps you in some way:

    Landed in Santo Domingo and was picked up by a taxi driving friend of a friend that I had set up. He took me to Zona Colonial to a hotel he suggested. 50 bucks-just a 1 minute walk from Pizzarella right in the heart of the Colonial Zone.

    Walked around a bit, got some pizza, got approached by a couple of skinny but dirty looking pseudo crack working girls who were working the streets. One was kinda hot-but just felt like a walking STD so I ignored her approach as best I could. Later that night, I walked to Oases strip club--probably not a good idea to walk there alone at night- but I move very fast and am on my game- but I would not suggest walking alone--there are definitely some sketch balls on the streets and its not very safe. At 930 PM the place was mostly dead. One fairly hot lady came out-tall, blonde, but not really my type: though I am sure many would have gone for it. I bailed out within a few minutes of being there and luckily a taxi drove by right as I walked out, so I took the taxi back to the hotel. I wasn't hoping for any action as I was heading to Barba Negra the next day so I wanted to save my energy..
    Excellent trip report brother. BB is definitely on my to visit list. I also completely agree with you on Medellin. I was just there and heading back there in December. Beautiful women all over.

    C5.

After I left POP, I had no contact with the office in POP. The corporate parent dictates how the local franchise operates. No Dominican squeezing of the yankee tourist. Threats of delaying their departure, etc.

    I can imagine a lot of nightmare scenarios if I had this experience with "Chulo's Rental Car. ".

So in essence they are local companies that only pay to use the recognizable name of the US company. In some cases the same person will own 2 of them. Eg. Rafael (made up name) being the dueno of Avis and Budget.

    Great report! It certainly has raised my interest in Blackbeards as a future destination.

    It sounds like your ability in Spanish opened some doors and prevented some trouble for you. I'm learning Spanish now.

    Thanks for the report.
