Accommodations in the Dominican
Sosua by the Sea OR Rio Vista Lodge, Dominican Republic
Convenient to the areas we serve and the places we will evangelize, these facilities have been serving missionaries for years. The layout of the grounds is ideal for worship, group devotional sessions and Bible study and will help create a team feel.
*If you would like your own room by yourself, there is an additional charge.
Your Dominican Republic accommodations are included in the cost of your trip.*
(Any accommodations related to, or in preparation for your departure from or upon returning to the United States are not included. If, for example, you need to get a hotel prior to your departure close to your originating airport, that will be at your expense.)
Visit your physician to let them know that you will be participating in mission work in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic and adhere to all immunization recommendations. Check with the CDC travelers health information.

It is recommended that you bring six sets of clothes, one for travel and one for each of the five days laboring.
We also recommend you take old, second-hand, or thrift store clothes, one set for each workday. They should be suitable for painting, cleaning, and serving people in intense heat and severe living conditions.
Bring at least one pair of old sneakers or shoes suitable for those days when we make trips to the dump that you can discard at the end of the trip. You must wear closed toed shoes.
*A swimsuit is necessary for swimming. Women, please bring a cover-up to wear traveling to and from the pool.
We recommend you do not bring jewelry, electronic devices, or other valuables. Cell phone service is not available; however, the lodge provides WiFi . You will be provided a contact telephone number in advance of departure where you can be reached in case of emergency.
Use only bottled water for drinking and brushing teeth. The hotel offers many bottled water stations. Bottled water will also be provided at all work locations. Some individuals bring a water bottle/container with them on the trip that they can refill.
The Dominican peso is the national currency; however, the American dollar is accepted everywhere. The trip fee covers all expenses in country, including food, water, and transportation and lodging. Bring only a small amount of money for any souvenirs you may wish to purchase, and limit this to one and five - dollar bills. (It's hard to bargain for a $ 5 item when all you have are $20s!) Consider bringing one credit card for emergencies. If you want to snorkel, bring $25, sometimes they give us group discount. And yes, you can use some of your cash to tip our drivers/translators as you feel led.
