Starting to think about getting my summer holidays booked up. This one will be with the g.f so I was lookin at the above destinations. None of my mates have been to either so I need to seek information elsewhere.
Cuba is my preffered option. Been looking at the Cayos and Varadero.
As for the Dom Rep, well I know nothing really so anything anyone knows would be appreciated

Cuba is WAAAAY more expensive than the D.R. and the scenery is comparable between the two. Culturally and politically, however, Cuba is in a world of it's own. So really, depends on what you're looking for.

Not seen you much lately mate, good to see you back. Thanks for the constructive opinion, so far iv only had the obvious things pointed out to me (female company is, for the most part, shit!)

To be honest, the money to get there is similar between the two, and either way id be looking at all inclusive so id hope spending money wont go through the roof. I think the deal swinger for me is the chance to see Havana. DR looks really nice and all but its just beaches and cocktails, I dont know anything about it, whereas with Cuba, I can spend 2 or 3 in Havana days smokin fat chaps and looking at murals of Che, then head to the beach for a mojito frenzy! All good!

Why not stay in Scotland & buy a Falkirk season ticket for you & the missus spending the change on cheap cider from Tescos & fried mars bars?

Thanks man.

It really depends on what you're looking for. If you just want to relax on a beach and go swimming, they're pretty comparable, but the DR is going to be much cheaper in terms of food, lodging, transportation, etc. (Cuba is surprisingly expensive). But if you're looking for culture, and history, I'd go with Cuba. Not that the DR doesn't have it's own share of culture and history, but damn man, Cuba is a trip; once in a lifetime sort of experience.
